TAMPA, Fla., September 10, 2012 -- ConnectWise, developer of the leading service management software designed for IT service providers, VARS, ISVs and MSPs, today announced that its CEO Arnie Bellini, President and COO David Bellini and Director of ConnectWise Community Jeannine Edwards have been named as inaugural members of the MSPmentor Locked in the NOC, a "Hall of Fame" collection of technical, business, sales, marketing and community insight leaders in the MSP industry.
Presented in conjunction with the MSPmentor 250, which is awarded annually based on current-year achievements, Locked in the NOC (Network Operations Center) honorees are considered "the best of the best" within the industry and are permanent additions to the publication's listing of those who have played a central role in building the MSP industry.
All three ConnectWise leaders inducted into Locked in the NOC are past honorees of the MSPmentor 250 and have won various other accolades and awards from peer groups, industry organizations and trade publications for their work over the past 30 years as key members of a successful MSP that has developed a comprehensive platform which enables its partners to achieve the highest levels of profitability and service to their clients.
Arnie Bellini has successfully expanded ConnectWise into new markets multiple times. After launching an IT services business with his brother in Tampa, Fla., Bellini has spent the past decade building a software business focused on MSPs and IT service providers. More recently, ConnectWise Capital has invested in CharTec, LabTech Software and Quosal, giving MSPs more tightly integrated tools upon which to build their businesses. The ConnectWise companies are expected to generate about $100 million in revenues for 2012. Bellini has also overseen IT Nation, an annual end-of-year conference where top MSPs and IT service providers gather to compare business strategies for the coming year.
ConnectWise Co-founder, President and COO David Bellini oversaw ConnectWise's IT services business in Tampa before shifting his focus to ConnectWise Capital and the ConnectWise software business about two years ago. Together with brother Arnie, David has built ConnectWise into one of the MSP industry's top software providers.
Edwards and her team have built one of the most successful, most engaged communities within the MSP industry. More recently, she has pushed beyond ConnectWise User Groups to help sister company LabTech Software build its worldwide community of MSPs. Edwards also works closely with the ConnectWise vendor community, driving software, hardware and services relationships. Her team has also positioned IT Nation, an annual conference, as one of the largest, most successful gatherings of IT service providers, MSPs and VARs.
"It's this feeling of connection and community -- that we're all partners in one another's success -- that makes what we do so worthwhile. We are extremely honored to be recognized by MSPmentor as permanent members of their annual report of the world's top MSP experts, entrepreneurs and executives." said Arnie Bellini.
The fifth annual MSPmentor 250 report is based on a global survey of MSPmentor site readers conducted from May through July 2012. The MSPmentor editorial staff also weighed in with nominations, based on the team's daily coverage of the managed services market. The resulting MSPmentor 250 and Locked in the NOC coverage represents MSP experts across business, technology, sales, marketing, community development, coaching and more.
