MIAMI, FL  – Cloud Carib, a Caribbean managed services provider (MSP), made its first appearance at the recent Channel Futures MSP 501 Awards and Leadership Summit at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach Hotel earlier this month, solidifying its status as an industry front-runner.

Despite being in business for a little over a decade and headquartered in the Caribbean, Cloud Carib’s rise to prominence was showcased at the summit, where Senior Vice President for Sales & Marketing, Tamara Hossack, took center stage on a captivating panel on Leadership, hosted by Channel Futures Senior News Editor Jeff O’Heir.

The panel boasted some of the industry’s most influential figures, who have earned coveted positions in the Top 10 MSP 501 list, to discuss “Lessons in Channel Leadership: Mastering Managed Services.”

Expedient CEO Bryan Smith, CDW Vice President of Managed Services Tom DeCoster, and Paola Doebel, Ensono Senior Vice President and Managing Director, joined Tamara in a dynamic conversation that showcased the power of strategic leadership in the world of managed services.

“Representing Cloud Carib on the panel alongside some of the most respected leaders in the managed services industry was an honor,” said Hossack. “While our company may not be the largest in terms of employee count, with Tom’s company boasting 20,000 employees, Paola’s with 4,000, and Bryan’s with 500, today’s panel proved that size doesn’t matter when it comes to delivering exceptional service and achieving top rankings,” she continued.
