Jim Kavanaugh Is ‘Bullish’ About 2020

IT visionary Jim Kavanaugh has some big plans in store for his $11.2 billion channel powerhouse World Wide Technology in 2020.

“I’m very bullish on where the market is,” said Kavanaugh, who co-founded WWT in 1990, in an interview with CRN. “I’m bullish about where we are investing to grow the business. I don’t see anything that overly concerns me at this point from a macro perspective.”
