CRN Celebrates the Up-and-Comers of the IT Channel

ANM, is proud to announce that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has chosen Paul Cooke, Director of Sales in Colorado, JR Garcia, Director of Solutions Engineering, and Kurt Huegin, VP of Sales & Marketing, as 2022 Next-Gen Solution Provider Leaders. This list honors the exceptional individuals who are key contributors to driving growth and strategic direction for the companies they work for today and are poised to be tomorrow’s channel innovators.

The third-annual Next-Gen Solution Provider Leaders list includes rising star executives, managers and directors, 40 years of age or younger, who have demonstrated clear leadership qualities in their roles at integrators, VARs, MSPs and other IT solution provider organizations.

Paul Cooke, Director of Sales, has been with ANM for our seven years. He leveraged his expertise to help streamline go to market efforts in sales support and manages ANM’s largest sales team for the Colorado and Wyoming market. His efforts have led to tremendous growth in 2022.

JR Garcia, Director of Solutions Engineering, leads a team of expert engineers in Arizona, Texas, and New Mexico and has been actively engaged in furthering ANM’s architectural selling efforts. To further these efforts, he helped create an ACE (ANM Certified Expert) certification program to train and develop ANM’s architects in additional architectures.

Kurt Huegin, VP of Sales & Marketing at ANM, has helped build out the go to market strategy for expanded security and hybrid cloud selling. This includes sales alignment, resourcing and marketing plans. These areas are significant growth drivers for ANM and have been key in driving increased market share across all markets ANM serves.

“Hearing these three ANM employees received the Next-Gen Solution Provider Leader award is a testament to the commitment and passion from each one of these individuals. Kurt, Paul, and JR continue to go above and beyond what’s asked of them daily,” said Raminder Mann, CEO of ANM. “They have been shown to drive growth and innovation for the sales, marketing, and engineering teams and I’m excited to continue to watch them grow in their careers here at ANM.”
