IAMCP Elects 2019 Board of Directors

The International Association of Microsoft Channel Partners (IAMCP) on Wednesday identified its worldwide leadership team for 2019.

The IAMCP exists to foster business networking opportunities for Microsoft partners and boasts more than 100 chapters in 47 countries. The 2019 Board of Directors consists of 10 officers drawn from IAMCP's three regions -- Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), Asia/Pacific (APAC) and Canada, Latin America and the United States (Americas).

Leading the organization is Sergio Baptista of EMEA as president, a role that rotates among the IAMCP's three regions. Elected vice president is Prashanth Subramanian of APAC.

Serving in other designated board roles are Secretary Sarika Malhotra, APAC; Treasurer Tom Major, Americas; and past president Jon Sastre, Americas.

Members at large include Andrea Pescino, EMEA, Bo Bauhn, EMEA, Neeraj Gargi, APAC, David Gersten, Americas, and John Zarei, Americas.

Retiring from the board are Jeff Goldstein, Ro Kolakowski, Javier Abreu O´Neill, Jacobo Senior, Ricardo Escorihuela, Corinne Sharp and Gail Mercer-MacKay.

The new board represents a streamlining from the 2018 board. That board voted in December to reorganize itself from five regions to the current three. The 2018 board had 16 members and four advisory board members.
