The ChannelPro Network has named Oli Thordarson (pictured), founder and CEO of Alvaka Networks, as the winner of the yearly honor for MSPs and VARs who have shared especially powerful peer-to-peer business advice.
Each month during the calendar year, ChannelPro invites a successful MSP, value-added reseller, or solution provider to share his or her story in the Peer to Peer feature that runs in the digital and print issues of ChannelPro magazine. The column provides actionable advice on topics such as growing a business, improving operations and service delivery, developing new lines of business, hiring and retention, building sales and marketing strategies, and creating and nurturing corporate culture.
All 12 stories in 2021, along with additional nominations received from the ChannelPro Network audience of readers and vendors, were considered for ChannelPro’s third annual Peer of the Year award by the publication’s editors, who selected the one they believe readers could learn the most from and immediately apply to their own business. Thordarson’s story detailed how he created a rapid response brand for Alvaka Networks and built out a SOC as part of the company’s always-on business model.
