Supports Imaging Channel Innovation and Collaboration

(Scottsdale, AZ) July 7, 2022 — Stramaglio Consulting, a founder of The Consortium, has announced GreatAmerica Financial Services is returning this year as the title sponsor for Executive Connection Summit (ECS) 2023 to be held Jan. 15 -18 in Scottsdale, AZ. ECS is a networking and educational event that has become a spark for innovation and change in the imaging industry over the previous eight events.

“We are thrilled to have GreatAmerica step up again this year to lead what will surely become a collaboration of industry support for ECS 2023,” says Mike Stramaglio, President and CEO at Stramaglio Consulting. “GreatAmerica has seen tremendous value in bringing the best and brightest from within the imaging space together to learn new perspectives from those outside our industry and inspire us all to grow and succeed.”

GreatAmerica is committed to the imaging channel and has been actively participating in The Consortium, a channel think tank that focuses on the long-term success of industry members. The Consortium is building on last year’s event theme, “Business Agility,” by focusing on “Human Agility” in 2023.

“When Mike and I spoke about plans for ECS 2023, it was an easy decision to once again commit to our sponsorship,” said Jennie Fisher, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Office Equipment Group at GreatAmerica. “ECS 2022 was an excellent event for us and our solution providers. It provided a special venue for hearing fresh ideas and perspectives and gave our channel inspiration for continued innovation. I am confident ECS 2023 will take this to the next level.”
