The team from channel partner ARG talks acquisitions and offers advice for their peers.

In this edition of the Coffee with Craig and James podcast, we get the inside scoop from the guys at techology advisor ARG.

ARG chief revenue officer Mike Shonholz and chief engagement officer Steve Kopp have seen a lot in their years of experience in the industry. That background has been key to pulling off some very successful acquisitions over the years.

Craig and James sat these gents down for an ARG perspective not only on M&A, but also the company’s overall inorganic growth strategy, what its “IT Clarity” branding is all about, and to get some general advice for some their peers in the channel.

Moreover, we’ll offer up our first official preview of this fall’s Channel Futures Leadership Summit, which in addition to being home to the MSP Summit and Women’s Leadership Summit, will take an extensive look at marketplaces and how they’re impacting the channel.

All that, plus James gets a little revenge on Craig for his little “easter egg” stunt around numbers on the last podcast. It’s the return of Channel Mad Libs!
