Introducing the 2022 Top 100 MPS Influencers

of the Office Equipment Channel

In 2021, Tigerpaw introduced a list of the top 100 influencers in the office equipment channel. Our goal was to uncover and amplify the voices of those who bring fresh ideas to help managed print dealers thrive in a rapidly changing marketplace. We’re proud to now share the 2022 Top 100 MPS Influencers.

You’ll see some changes on this year’s list. Over the past year, we learned more about the factors that truly represent channel influence that moves the industry forward. We tracked evidence of thought leadership in a variety of venues, social influence including activity and reach, leadership outside people’s professional roles, and overall production of industry education and insight.

Getting on the list isn’t easy. It’s not “pay to play,” nor is it through referrals or nominations. Most importantly, it is not just a list. It’s a community. Over the past year, members of the Top 100 gathered weekly for a candid (and non-recorded) conversation about challenges and opportunities facing the channel. The variety of attendees was incredible: dealers, software providers, OEMs, consultants, educators, and everything in between. It’s been a powerful collaboration for participants and has spurred new articles, blogs, interviews, keynotes, and more to share fresh ideas with the entire office equipment industry and beyond.

If you are looking to grow your business, to learn and to grow in positive directions, make sure you connect with the members on this list. We are a product of the people we surround ourselves with, and the Top 100 Influencers of the Office Equipment Channel are a great bunch to get to know better.
