Maumee, OH, March 5, 2020 – Aktion Associates, Inc., a national software reseller and IT infrastructure provider focused on the Construction, Distribution and Manufacturing industries, today announced the appointment of Patrick Brennan as Practice Manager to lead the Infor CloudSuite Distribution (CSD) services delivery operation for the Supply Chain Division. Based at the company’s New York office, Patrick is responsible for CSD service delivery operations across North America. The appointment was made in response to the continued growth of the Supply Chain Division.
“Pat brings strategic insights to meeting the IT needs of Infor CSD customers,” said Aktion CEO Scott Irwin. “Leading the CSD service team, I’m confident Pat will deliver on-time, on-budget CSD ERP go-lives that further enable customer success and help increase productivity as Aktion continues to expand across North America, transforming companies and catalyzing growth through exceptional service delivery,” he added.
Patrick has diverse experience in the Distribution and Manufacturing industries, spending the past five years at New York-based Maximum Computer Systems (MCS) supporting small and medium companies using Infor distribution software including Infor CSD, Infor SX.e and Infor A+. In 2018 Aktion Associates acquired the assets and customer base of MCS, and all field sales and service personnel joined the Aktion staff. The acquisition made Aktion Associates the largest provider of Infor Distribution software solutions in North America. Prior to MCS, Patrick held several senior consulting roles at Infor delivering financial, international currency, budgeting, warehouse management and production control ERP software solutions.
“The CSD practice is seeing rapid growth as Distribution companies transform their business with Infor ERP software,” Patrick said. “The team I’m leading is highly skilled and uniquely suited to service CSD customers. I’m excited to take on this role and continue Aktion’s expansion, and ultimately, deliver the best customer service,” he added.
