TPx’s Hilary Gadda has been named to CompTIA’s Future Leaders Community Executive Council.
Gadda is the director of channel development for TPx. She also is a co-founder and past president of Women in the Channel (WiC), and has served on CompTIA’s Advancing Women in IT (AWIT) Executive Council and Vendor Advisory Council.
“With the breadth of her experience in our industry, Hilary is a strong addition to our Future Leaders Community Executive Council,” said Nancy Hammervik, executive vice president, industry relations, CompTIA. “The industry leaders that populate our communities and councils give us unprecedented insight into the day-to-day operations of the technology industry. This visibility is vital as CompTIA helps to shape the future of an industry that’s in the midst of dynamic and profound changes impacting how business technology solutions are built, purchased and consumed.”
The CompTIA Future Leaders Community was founded with the idea of understanding and embracing the multigenerational workforce and building best practices by:
- Providing guidance on how companies should position themselves to best leverage the talent and skills from diverse generations
- Building programs to mentor future leaders to take on leadership positions as the baby boomers retire by providing opportunities for older generations to develop a deeper understanding of the needs and drivers for millennials as they grow in their careers
- Capturing and communicating the IT needs of future leaders as a means of uncovering new IT opportunities to serve this generation
“I’m honored to be a member of CompTIA’s Future Leaders Community Executive Council and I’m very much looking forward to working with the other council members,” said Gadda. “CompTIA is at the forefront of the IT industry and this council will play a huge role in educating and attracting the next-generation workforce to take a strong look at the breadth of career opportunities available within the IT industry. I have always been passionate about our need for more young people joining IT and tech. That was one of the core reasons I co-founded WiC, and this is a fantastic and rewarding way to continue that work.”
