Industry Pioneers Take on Leadership Role for PSNI Global Alliance
PSNI Global Alliance is pleased to announce its 2018 board of directors, made official during the organization’s annual Supersummit, held last week. The 2018 board will include a combination of North American and Global Members to reflect the goals and opportunities identified by the executive leadership team for the alliance.
The new board will include the two-year appointment of Jeff Irvin, Principal at Spinitar, and former vice president of the PSNI board of directors. Irvin will replace Dana Barron as president while Barron will act as past president for the board.
“After serving on the board over the past 3 years, I’m very excited and honored to now serve as President of PSNI Global Alliance during such an extraordinary time in our association’s history,” said Irvin. “Now that the PSNI Global Alliance is being poised to serve customers in major markets throughout the world, the opportunities for PSNI Affiliates and our Preferred Vendor Partners are immense. I look very forward to leading the continuing transition of PSNI into a global organization, as we build better work and learning experiences and outcomes for our customers wherever they may be."
Additionally, three global members-at-large have been added to the lineup in order to provide international input and experience while acting as a voice for the global organization.
The 2018 PSNI elected officers include:
- Past-President/Chairman: Dana Barron, CEO at HB Communications
- President: Jeff Irvin, Principal at Spinitar
- Vice-President: Kevin Groves, CEO at Alpha Video
- Secretary/Treasurer: Angela Nolan, COO at Vistacom
- Member-at-Large: Jochen Roggenkämper, Co-Owner at Datavision
- Member-at-Large: Girish Narayanan, Founder/Managing Director at Granteq
- Member-at-Large: Odair Tremante, Sales Director at Solutione
“We are excited to welcome Jeff as our new President to the PSNI Global Alliance Board,” stated Executive Director of PSNI, Chris Miller. “Jeff has served on the Board of Directors for several years and will provide a seamless transition in leadership. His collaborative leadership style will bring out the very best from our diverse global board that will help the alliance prepare for the opportunities ahead.”
A two-part election was conducted this year. The first was held during the PSNI Global Alliance meeting held in Rotterdam, Netherlands, where the global members selected three representatives to the PSNI Board of Directors. At the North American annual meeting held prior to Supersummit ’18, the stockholders elected the four officers bringing the total number to seven that reside on the PSNI Global Alliance Board of Directors.
“This is one of the most exciting times in PSNI history,” said Miller. “With the continued global expansion of our network and our new board in place to provide guidance and direction PSNI will be an organization to watch.”
