Building a channel business with your hands

Building a channel business with your hands

NetApp partner director, Scott Morris, is passionate about channel development. He spoke to ARN about his distribution and vendor heritage, working outdoors and helping staff reach their potential.

What do you do when you’re not at work?

I’m not an IT aficionado at home and have two young daughters, so I don’t have the time to do that. I usually spend the weekends building something as I am a DIY person.

I also ride my Harley and play golf – I’d love to play more golf.

What did you want to be when you were younger?

If I asked my parents, they’d say I wanted to be a brain surgeon. But I didn’t really have a particular view and nothing stood out. I thought I’d be out in a trade.

What’s your biggest ambition?

The biggest kick I get is from the number of individuals I have met or hired who still ring me up to this day and say they’re glad I took the interest in their career.

They have been successful in their own right – I have an amazing network of people I’ve worked with and have left every organisation on good terms. It’s a tough industry, but being able to have had a positive impact on so many people is what I like doing.
