Inspired Business Innovations CEO Victor Johnston has been named CompTIA’s Member of Year.
Johnston will be recognised at CompTIA ChannelCon 2018 in Washington, D.C., which takes place between 31st July and 2nd August.
“Since his first contact with CompTIA, Victor has epitomised what it means to be an active and engaged member of an industry association,” said Nancy Hammervik, CompTIA’s executive vice president for industry relations.
“Victor has volunteered well over 2,000 hours of his time in the past six years, providing his unique insights, leadership and personality to several CompTIA initiatives, including our Advancing Women in Technology, Advancing Diversity in Technology, Future Leaders and IT Security communities, as well as his local chapter of the CompTIA Association of IT Professionals.”
Johnston, 33, said his membership in CompTIA has provided him with opportunity: “It’s the opportunity for community, friendships, knowledge and economic growth. It’s the opportunity to be better tomorrow than what you were today.”
Johnston carries that message forward in his role as CEO of Inspired Business Innovations. The training and consulting firm specialises in coaching, mentoring, developing, diversifying, and improving team cohesion, all with the goal of making positive, long-lasting impacts in the corporate and social worlds by helping others see the potential in themselves.
This is the second business that Johnston has started. In 2012, he opened Johnston IT Consulting, which initially catered to the technology needs of small businesses. That same year, Johnston attended CompTIA’s Breakaway conference (now known as ChannelCon). Through connections made at the conference Johnston was able to expand and grow his business.
