Thompson has more than 20 years of IT channel experience and a track record of leading global business transformation, designing complex strategic initiatives, and delivering operational planning and processes that drive business results.

In her most recent role as Ingram Micro‘s global cloud business operations transformation leader, Thompson worked closely with key stakeholders from different parts of the business and geographies to access where programs needed to be built or improved to support accelerated growth, a scalable business model, reduction of costs and increased efficiencies.

Here’s our list of channel people on the move in March.

“Gina brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to Axcient, and we are excited to welcome her to the team,” Cummings said. “This announcement reaffirms our commitment to the IT channel and our focus on helping our partners elevate their go-to-market strategies with Axcient’s suite of leading cloud solutions. As a change agent in the industry with a proven ability to provide leadership during transformational market changes, we look forward to the growth and impact Gina will have in her new role.”

In February, Axcient appointed David Bennett, previously Webroot’s chief revenue officer, as its new CEO.

Launched last November, Axcient’s business availability suite includes a range of business availability and cloud migration tools, and enables MSPs to build secure technology stacks for their customers.
