Think Guy is awesome?
Vouch for them.

Menachem Sharron
Sales and Marketing Manager, d.e.s.k. electronic systems. Previously Sales and Marketing Manager, Daf Raanan.
Guy is a great guy and I highly recommend him. He is an astute business man with lots of international contacts.
Bob Snyder
Owner, Channel Media Europe Ltd.. High tech routes-to-market expert and known industry speaker.
I met Guy when he was a guest speaker at DISTREE, a EMEA conference for distributors. In my opinion, Guy is the epitome of a successful di ... stributor CEO: he demonstrates the qualities that make the difference between an average distributor and a great distributor. He has a laser focus that burns through obstacles and an attention to detail that surpasses the highest levels of most vendor executives. He understands the role of the channel and has the gravitas to negotiate great deals. These characteristics of course would apply to more businesses than acting as a CEO of a high tech distribution company but I am speaking here from my own contact with Guy which may now have reached its first decade. His experiences make Guy a great advisor for most businesses, especially since there are only a few that surpass the difficulty of the high tech distributor who must be the agilest of the agile and make profit from the tightest of margins. Out of hundreds of the distributor CEOs I have met in high tech. I would not hesitate to recommend Guy to help your business.

Bob Snyder
We worked together  •  Owner, Channel Media Europe Ltd.. High tech routes-to-market expert and known industry speaker.
I first met Bob about 10 years ago at a Tech industry event, DISTREE, when we were both speaking. He's highly knowledgeable about all aspect ... s of the industry, a great person to have as a speaker/facilitator at events, and an equally good writer, too. If you need somebody who has strong contacts across the globe and can give unbiased input on trends and technology, Bob's your man.
