Cinch I.T. President Awarded CRN Next-Gen Solution Provider for 2020

2020 Next-Gen Solution Provider Leaders

Through their drive and passion, CRN’s inaugural list honors those 40-years-old or younger who have helped propel growth and strategic direction at their companies.

Just as the I.T. channel thrives on a steady stream of new, innovative technologies, so too does it require a continual infusion of people with unique talents and new ideas. Not to mention, industry leaders also need the drive and passion to use those technologies to develop and deliver I.T. solutions for their customers.

Here we present CRN’s inaugural Next-Gen Solution Provider Leaders, recognizing today’s rising star solution provider executives, directors, and managers who are poised to be tomorrow’s channel leaders.

The list honors 40 years of age or younger who have made significant contributions to driving growth and strategic direction over the past year. It includes those who have rethought their company’s business models and processes to improve operations. Some have installed—and even built—new systems to support and automate those changes. Perhaps most importantly, they have found new ways to serve their customers better and deliver value through ever-more-innovative IT solutions.

The achievements of those on this year’s list are all the more remarkable given that all of the honorees found themselves rapidly adjusting their business operations—even entirely rethinking their business models—when the COVID-19 pandemic struck. Solution providers pivoted to support customers’ work-from-home employees even as they were also homebound and helped customers make unplanned digital transformations on the fly.


Richard Porter, President of Cinch I.T.

Porter made the list for:

  • Converting the MSP into a national franchise model
  • Training six new MSP owners
  • Helping these owners launch six Cinch I.T. offices

The model provides centralized help-desk support, network operating center services, education, and training.
