Service Leadership CEO Paul Dippell and his team will join the ConnectWise strategy organisation, reporting to Chris Timms, executive vice president of growth. Dippell will continue to lead Service Leadership.
“We prioritised this acquisition as the TSP industry is experiencing significant disruption. At ConnectWise, we’re big believers in the value of data analysis and this disruption is showing that understanding data is critical because it allows TSP’s to make business and strategic decisions based upon empirical data and not speculation,” said Chris Timms, EVP of growth, ConnectWise. “Paul and his team have been massively successful in helping TSPs thrive. Their work has been truly impactful for entrepreneurs and we’re thrilled to welcome Paul, Brian O’Connell and the entire Service Leadership team to ConnectWise to drive success for all our partners.”
“We have been very fortunate to have great clients and to build the premier, data-driven TSP consulting firm with the leading TSP financial benchmark and business maturity platform worldwide,” said Paul Dippell, founder and CEO, Service Leadership. “When we made the decision to seek a strategic acquisition, we were pleased to speak with almost a dozen key industry players. We came to recognise that ConnectWise was the right choice. They have the best vision for leveraging the S-L Index and SLIQ platforms together with the partner operational data they have, to produce opt-in analytics that will give their partners clear advantages in the marketplace. Like us, driving partner success is part of ConnectWise’s core DNA. ConnectWise is the best place for our people and our clients – both individual members and the peer group and coaching leaders we serve.”
