Topping the 2022 list is CJ Cannata of The CANNATA Group, followed by Louella Fernandes (Quocirca), and West McDonald (West McDonald Co and Tigerpaw)
Tigerpaw Software released today its 2022 list of the Top 100 Influencers in the managed print industry. The list recognizes individuals in the office equipment channel who have been identified as major drivers of change and key voices to follow.
Topping the 2022 list is CJ Cannata of The CANNATA Group/The Cannata Report followed by Louella Fernandes (Quocirca), and West McDonald (West McDonald Co and Tigerpaw). The Cannata Report‘s Editor-in-Chief Scott Cullen is also included on the list of influencers.
This is the second year for compilation of this list, which is based on a scoring algorithm that includes multiple measurements. Tigerpaw tracked evidence of thought leadership in a variety of venues, social influence including activity and reach, leadership outside people’s professional roles, and overall production of industry education and insight. The end result is a list designed as a resource and inspiration for office equipment dealers and others looking for ideas and growth strategies that benefit the entire industry.
“Getting on this list isn’t easy, and it’s not ‘pay to play,’” said Tigerpaw President and CEO James Foxall. “Over the past year, we learned more about how influence is demonstrated in the industry, and we commend these individuals for their outreach, collaboration, and commitment to promoting positive change in the channel.”
While the 2021 Top MPS Influencers began as a list, it soon grew into a community. Over the past year, several members have met weekly for collaborative conversations about challenges and ideas to help the industry grow and evolve. This has generated additional research, interviews, and thought leadership being shared across multiple industry platforms.
“Our goal has always been to amplify the voices of those who are trying to advance the channel for the benefit of everyone in it. We’re excited about the relationships that have been built and strengthened within the group and look forward to even more engagement over the next year,” said Foxall.
The full list is available on Tigerpaw’s website.
