David Gersten Elected IAMCP US Secretary

We’re pleased to announce that our VP of Customer Success & Strategic Relationships, David Gersten, has onboarded as the new Secretary for the US region of IAMCP. He received his new title and role at the recent IAMCP US Board meeting in Toronto, Canada. From an introspective viewpoint, David reflects on what IAMCP means to him below.


Approximately five years ago I walked into the Irvine office of Microsoft and entered my first International Association of Microsoft Channel Partners (IAMCP) meeting. I was with another Dynamics’ partner at the time and we were looking for a Dynamics CRM partner to help complete and RFP that I could not complete without a Dynamics CRM component. What we thought was going to be a $50,000 opportunity ultimately became a $350,000 Dynamics NAV and CRM solution. This never could have happened if I hadn’t walked into the IAMCP SoCal room and ask to partner with another partner.

As a result of seeing the success here I ended up deciding that I really wanted to become more involved. Over the next 4 years I served as the IAMCP SoCal Secretary, Treasurer, and President. During that time I was also nominated to the West Regional Role responsible for over 10 chapters located in the Western United States.

My involvement in IAMCP has led to over $1,000,000 in shared revenue wins here at Bond Consulting Services and has created deeper relationships with Microsoft, ISVs, and other partners throughout the world. We now have 3 people involved all the time with IAMCP and our plans for becoming more involved are just now flourishing again.

As of last week, I have been elected as the Secretary of the IAMCP US Board. I am honored to now work aside great people like Ro Kolakowski, Randy Steinle, Tom Major and Jon Sastre. Our plans to build out IAMCP with more stronger chapters and focus on bringing value to the IAMCP members is right up my ally. I look forward to being part of this amazing organization for many years to go. Perhaps I may even have a chance to follow the US leadership path as I did locally, considering the first local position I had was Secretary too.
