Arrow’s Bryant Makes UBM Channel Top 100 List

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Reflecting the leadership that Arrow Electronics Inc. (NYSE: ARW) has established in the growing IT services market, CRN has named Andy Bryant, president of Arrow’s global Enterprise Computing Solutions segment, among the 2011 Top 100 Executives in the Channel in the “Channel Services Leaders” category.

“This recognition for Andy and Arrow is particularly significant given the list was compiled based on nominations from solution providers,” said Michael J. Long, chairman, president and CEO of Arrow. Long was recognized among the Top 100 in 2010 in the “Channel Mavericks” category. “Arrow has made investments within our ECS business to increase our depth in services that enable solution providers to increase their value and maximize their margin opportunities. I congratulate Andy on this recognition by the industry.”

In North America, Arrow ECS formalized the services support it has always offered to solution providers by establishing the Fusion professional services business in early 2010. Arrow ECS has continually expanded the Fusion business since then by launching additional supplier-authorized training; configuration, assessment and integration support; post-sale technical support and cloud computing services.

Among the enhancements to its services offerings, Arrow ECS acquired the Technology Innovation unit of InScope International. The acquisition expanded Arrow ECS’ team of implementation consultants providing server and storage technology services to build and support private cloud infrastructures.

CRN’s 2011 Top 100 Executives list was based on nominations from solution providers who rated channel vendor executives based on influence, effectiveness and viability, as well as business and sales impact. The CRN editorial team judged nominees based on sales volume, channel investment and advocacy, and performance in 2011 CRN research projects such as Channel Champs and the Annual Report Card. Expanded coverage of the 2011 Top 100 Executives is featured in the November issue of CRN Magazine and online at
