Information technology (IT) industry executive Bob Stegner, admired and respected by colleagues and peers for three decades of commitment to the IT channel and a willingness to help others succeed along the way, is the newest member of the IT Hall of Fame.
Stegner, senior vice president for North American marketing at SYNNEX Corporation since 2007, will be honored during a virtual ceremony on August 6 during ChannelCon Online 2020, the annual conference presented by CompTIA, the nonprofit association for the global technology industry.
“I can’t think of a more worthy recipient of this honor,” said Todd Thibodeaux, president and CEO of CompTIA.
“The industry, and particularly the SMB vertical, has grown and evolved in large part due to Bob’s efforts and leadership throughout his career,” Thibodeaux continued. “It’s hard to imagine someone who has impacted and aided more companies and individuals than Bob. He’s a daily source of inspiration to the thousands of people who’ve had the good fortune to know him and benefit from his experience.”
Stegner’s selection to the IT Hall of Fame was universally welcomed by channel leaders.
“Bob’s commitment to the reseller community for over 30 years is a true testament to serving others,” said Steve Harper, retired president of Network Management Group, Inc. in Hutchinson, Kan. “Bestowing this honor on him is well deserved.”
“The impact that Bob has made on this industry is significant,” said Stephanie Dismore, senior vice president and managing director, North America, HP. “The industry knows that Bob’s authenticity, the way that he approaches people, certainly makes him one of a kind.”
