Host Karl chats with Dave Sobel from MSP Radio and The Business of Tech (and the Killing IT podcast).

How diverse is our industry? Well, based on Dave Sobel’s research of 301 company web sites . . . Not very!

Dave is the brains (and talent) behind MSP Radio and the Business of Tech podcast. Each quarter since 2020, he has looked at industry web sites to see just how diverse our industry is.

As Dave always asks: Why do we care? Well, there’s a lot of research that shows a strong connection between diversity and profit. Companies can increase revenue and profit by as much as twenty percent by building a more diverse workforce.

Dave is regarded as a leading expert on IT and managed services, cloud computing, and virtualization, and is a featured speaker at industry events including Channel Partners, Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, IT Nation, SITS London, and as a CompTIA trainer at multiple events, and is often quoted in business and technology publications.

Dave started his career as a consultant to Fortune 500 companies, as well as a product developer and designer. He owned and operated a IT Solution Provider and MSP for over a decade, both acquiring other organizations and eventually being acquired.

Since his MSP experience, he has worked for multiple vendors at such companies as Level Platforms, GFI, LogicNow, and Solarwinds, leading community, event, marketing, and product strategies, as well as several M&A activities.
