Good evening, channel partners. Welcome to ChannelE2E Podcast 60 -- our conversation with Darren Gottesmann, director of SMB sales at Ingram Micro. We discuss the Ingram Micro SMB Alliance -- a community of VARs and MSPs that share best practices, key learnings and timely advice for growth. Gottesmann also touches on the "SMB Machine" mindset -- a human spirit that drives community members forward.
