Blue Chip Welcomes Licensing Specialist

In response to achieving Microsoft Direct Cloud Solution Provider status, we are pleased to welcome seasoned licensing specialist, Ben Marshall, to the organization.

The Microsoft Direct Cloud Solution Provider Program allows Blue Chip to sell, provision, manage, and support Microsoft cloud offerings. As Licensing Specialist, Marshall will oversee Blue Chip's Direct CSP program and work with clients to optimize their Microsoft licensing position.

"While there is growing demand for Microsoft's cloud-based solutions and services, navigating cloud licensing can be difficult," said Ben Marshall, Licensing Specialist at Blue Chip. "Through CSP status, Blue Chip can make licensing less complex and guide clients on their cloud journey. More importantly, this distinction supports Blue Chip's mission of providing cost predictable solutions for Blue Chip clients."

Prior to Blue Chip, Marshall held varied consultative and sales positions at SoftwareONE. Most recently, he helped establish CDW's Software Asset Management service, building and managing a million-dollar pipeline.

"Ben brings over 27 years of technology strategy and licensing experience to Blue Chip," said Steve Kirtley, Senior Vice President of Business Development at Blue Chip. "He is uniquely qualified to assist our clients with their licensing and cloud strategy, and we are proud to have him on our team."

To learn more about how Blue Chip provides holistic cloud solutions for our clients via Direct CSP, contact Ben.
