At the December 2, 2018, IAMCP board meeting, the board voted to reorganize the International Board of Directors to be represented by three Tier 2 regions (AMERICAS, APAC and EMEA) reduced from five regions, effective January 1, 2019. We are delighted to share that our CEO, John Zarei has been elected as a 2019 board member and will represent the Americas region (Canada, LATAM, US) along with two others, David Gersten and Tom Major. The responsibilities for the board are to serve IAMCP members and Microsoft partners.


The International Association of Microsoft Channel Partners (IAMCP) is the leading organization for business networking in the Microsoft partner eco-system with 100+ chapters in more than 47 countries around the globe. IAMCP members are considered Microsoft best-of-breed partners and represent the trusted, independent voice of the Microsoft partner community. IAMCP members have the ability to influence Microsoft, government legislators and the media. Through regular activities and online events, members are able to discuss partner experiences, share best practices, and learn from colleagues in order to improve and develop their businesses. The non-profit organization is operated by an annually elected board of directors and is funded through membership fees and sponsor grants.

President, Sergio Baptista addressed the board following the election,

“Welcome to the new slate of leaders. As our organization grows, it also evolves, and we will work hard to implement new initiatives to strengthen our organization. If you are a Microsoft partner, we are here to help you maximize your engagement with Microsoft and with other partners. We have chapters all over the world, and we encourage you to find a chapter in your area at Strong local IAMCP chapters lead to both partner and customer success.”
