During the recent CompTIA Annual Member Meeting, the revamped HOF was rolled out and 2011 inductees were honored, including Earl Pace, Phil Katz, and the CompTIA A Originators team.
The team that spearheaded development of the CompTIA A certification includes James Brann, Richard Bulot, Dennis Cagan, Joe Ciulla, Julie Faster, Dave Garcia, Mark Hiltz, John Hlavac, Alan Hupp, Gus Kolias, Tim Kuhlman, Terry Morrison, Dennis O'Leary, Sara Parks, Marshall Toplansky, Aaron Woods, Tricia Wurts, and Bill York.
Aaron Woods accepted the award as representative of the CompTIA A group and acknowledged the assistance of Jean Alexander, who was the CompTIA representative for the group during creation of the accreditation.
ChannelPro-SMB was able to reach Jean Alexander (now with The ascii Group) to see how it felt to receive such an honor. "You know it was the first vendor neutral certification in the world so there were no guidelines. So we just built a very successful model and I am proud to have headed up this team of professionals that challenged me on a regular basis---and we pulled it all together. What a success story!" said Jean.
