The CRN Industry Achievement Award is selected by CRN’s Editor to recognise the accomplishments of an individual that has delivered outstanding results and success in the IT channel this year. The Industry Achievement award is among the most prestigious CRN awards, only a handful of industry leaders have been presented with the award.
Paul’s resolution in overseeing Inflexion’s recent acquisition of ANS in June 2021 is seen by CRN as one of the greatest success stories in the industry this year.
Josh Budd, Editor of CRN, commented: “I am delighted to see Paul recognised for his hard work and dedication. Paul has demonstrated strong leadership and an ability to make bold decisions in a competitive market. He is a testament to the many years of successes by the ANS team.”
Speaking of the award, Paul Shannon said: “I’m humbled to receive such an award but I have to give thanks to the ANS board. It’s a testament to what we’ve achieved together over the last decade or so, but particularly the last 5 years. The team are simply amazing to work with, be around and call friends. This is a special and incredibly fortunate position to be in and I never take it for granted.”
Since joining ANS in 2009, Paul has progressed through multiple technical, pre-sales and management roles and has been pivotal in transitioning ANS into an end to end digital transformation provider.
