Coretek CEO, Ron Lisch, shares his perspective for MSP success in the Motor City with ChannelNomics:

“The economic growth [in Southeast Michigan] is something being witnessed by local MSPs, such as Coretek Services.

In fact, interest in manufacturing and autonomous vehicles in the area is representing new opportunity for MSPs, Ron Lisch, Coretek’s CEO, tells Channelnomics, pointing to the vast majority of R&D in this space being conducted in Detroit and California.

“Becoming relevant in those markets is really strategic for us because the amount of data that’s generated in that market in the automobile itself is just massive, and then it all has to have a place to reside and people are looking for groups to help manage that,” Lisch says.”
