SynMSP Advisory Board formed to steer strategic direction
Five of our managed services-focused members have come together to form an Advisory Board for the SynMSP membership base, act as a voice for participating members and also set strategic goals and direction for the group. The announcement follows a successful meeting of SynMSP members at the Member Conference.
The five members of the SynMSP Advisory Board have been named as:
· Martin Bannister, Kogo
· Tom Morton, 127 Solutions
· Steve Webster, Neticonic
· Anthony Lay, AML Midlands
· Mike Hoffman, Drum Brae
They will meet on a quarterly basis to discuss current market dynamics, review progress and set priorities for the group. The first formalised meeting is expected to take place in September.
These regular meetings will help both members and Synaxon UK to ensure we are moving in the right direction and focusing our efforts in the right areas. Managed services are already an important contributor to member businesses and that’s only going to get stronger, so we see SynMSP becoming a much bigger area of a focus for our team.
Martin Bannister, Managing Director of Kogo stated: “I’m honored to be on the formative SynMSP Advisory Board and I’m very much looking forward to helping the group as a whole move forward. It’s great that Synaxon UK has decided to give the members a way to provide regular input into the shape and direction of future plans in such a pro-active and positive way. It will make sure that the SynMSP program stays on track and aligned with the priorities of its members.”
The SynMSP membership category is designed both for established MSPs who want to grow and members looking to develop their managed services businesses. It is open to all members and provides specific resources and support to help resellers grow their managed services sales and drive higher levels of customer satisfaction.

Clive wins Fortnum & Mason’s hamper treat
Congratulations to Clive Sanham from PC Simple, who has won a bumper hamper from Fortnum & Masons, which was up for grabs from Ingram Micro at the recent Synaxon National Conference. The winner was drawn at random from all those who registered on Microsoft’s DP edge, which is a fantastic learning tool for all resellers and gives a great insight into Office, Windows and Server technical information.
