Arlin Sorensen, Vice President of Ecosystems at ConnectWise, praised Moran, stating, "As an industry veteran who has run a successful managed services business, Nick brings a level of trust that aligns with the journey our partners are undertaking. He understands the regional growth landscape, understands the challenges, and is dedicated to supporting partners every step of the way."

Moran's expertise is expected to positively affect the places, spaces, and people he interacts with, ensuring that ConnectWise's dedication to partner success remains unwavering.

As the newly appointed Evangelism Director, Moran expressed his excitement at this juncture, "I am thrilled to join ConnectWise at such an exciting time for its partners. As our industry undergoes significant changes and widespread acquisitions, many partners are grappling with the inefficiencies caused by disparate systems. At ConnectWise, we are unwavering in our dedication to addressing these challenges through the Asio platform, all while maintaining our steadfast partner-first values. I am truly excited to be part of a company that is deeply committed to the success of our partners and to represent this exceptional community."

Trust in Moran's deep understanding of the opportunities and challenges faced by partners will drive his role in the APAC region. Moran's extensive entrepreneurial expertise coupled with his commitment to partners positions him as a dedicated champion within the region. He will actively engage with partners, advocating for technologies and programmes that empower them to take their businesses to newer heights.

Sorensen concludes, "Nick's unparalleled reputation and the trust partners place in him is evident. His influence creates a powerful force and multiplier effect. As we expand our local partner events, such as IT Nation Connect in Sydney this August, and continue to foster quarterly peer and user groups across APAC, Nick's involvement will be instrumental in driving partner success."
