Colin Knox
Founder and former CEO of both XCEL Professional Services and Passportal until their acquisitions by F12.net in May 2016 and Solarwinds MSP (Managed Services Provider) respectively. Colin managed all aspects of branding, business development, staff recruiting, and operations, then successfully exited and sold both businesses in under 10 years. During his time at Passportal, Colin sought and raised angel investment in late 2014 to ramp up the business. Since the initial investment, Colin has driven triple-digit year over year growth in the business each year and led expansion of the award-winning product suite in 32 countries.

Join us for coffee, breakfast and great conversation. We look forward to seeing you there!
