Trish Bakker of Computer Design & Integration LLC (CDI LLC) Honored as One of CRN’s 2019 Women of the Channel

Sponsored by Businesswire

Design & Integration LLC (CDI LLC)
announced today that CRN®,
a brand of The
Channel Company
, has named Trish Bakker, Chief Executive Officer, to
its prestigious 2019 Women of the Channel list. The leaders on this
annual list are from all areas of the IT channel ecosystem; representing
technology suppliers, distributors, solution providers, and other IT
organizations. Each is recognized for her contributions to channel
advocacy, channel growth and visionary leadership.

CRN editors choose the list from a multitude of channel leadership
applicants and select the final honorees based on their professional
accomplishments, demonstrated expertise, and ongoing dedication to the
IT channel.

Trish co-founded CDI in 1995 with her husband, Eric, in the garage of
their home in Tappan, New York. When Eric presented the idea of starting
a new business, Trish was pregnant with their second child and had an
almost three-year-old son. But as she does now for the employees of her
company, she was supportive in this venture and helped drive the hybrid
IT solutions provider into the $300 million organization it is today. As
CEO with responsibility for human resources, sales, marketing and
operations, Trish will continue to drive this privately held IT
consulting and reselling organization in pursuit of its future milestone
– increasing revenue over the next several years to $500 million.

“CRN’s 2019 Women of the Channel list honors influential leaders who are
accelerating channel growth through mutually-beneficial partnerships,
incredible leadership, strategic vision, and unique contributions in
their field,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “This
accomplished group of leaders is driving channel success and we are
proud to honor their achievements.”

“It is an honor to be recognized and a privilege to share this award
with such a well-respected group – all whom have made incredible
contributions to the channel ecosystem,” said Trish Bakker, CEO, CDI.
“As a women-owned business enterprise, we’re committed to creating a
diverse and inclusive corporate culture where all talent is cultivated
and valued. I look forward to using my platform to continue fostering
long-lasting relationships with our partners as we work together to
accelerate growth and drive our customers toward digital transformation.”

The 2019 Women of the Channel list will be featured in the June issue of
CRN Magazine and online at
