CRN recognition honors leadership, knowledge, and influence in IT Channel

February 6, 2023 (Calgary, Alberta) – Today, CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, released its annual list of Channel Chiefs for 2023 which included Gradient MSP CEO & Co-Founder Colin Knox.

“It’s an honor to be named a Channel Chief alongside so many amazing Channel leaders,” says Knox of the award. “The Channel has always welcomed me and my vision of the future, and I pride myself on giving back to MSPs through the work we do at Gradient.”

The award celebrates the many achievements of the serial entrepreneur and a year of growth and visibility for Gradient. The Synthesize platform was launched to support and improve back-office activities like billing reconciliation, and late in the year, launched an alert monitoring module. Under Knox’s leadership, the company was a regular participant in Channel conferences and events, taking home multiple awards for product, presentations, and innovation.

“Our team has done an amazing job to support my vision of what Gradient MSP can be, how we can help MSPs solve their toughest challenges, and I share this recognition with them.”
