Feature Friday: Colin Knox, Founder & Chief Executive Officer
Colin Knox, Chief Executive Officer & Founder
Colin Knox is the Chief Executive Officer of Passportal and has spent the past 15 years deeply embedded in the MSP industry as a well-recognized person in the IT Channel. In 2011, Colin founded Passportal when he identified a major pain in his own MSP with trying to get technicians quick and controlled access to privileged client credentials, and information needed to manage client IT systems. In 2014, he exited his MSP to focus on Passportal's delivery of password security and documentation management to the IT Channel. Colin has driven triple-digit growth in the business each year since, and led expansion of the award-winning, SOC2 certified product suite to be used by more than 2,000 MSPs around the world.
Fun fact about Colin; he was personally listed twice (2012 and 2014) as one of the 250 most influential and successful MSP executives. Colin has traveled all over the world to places such as Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 2018 for the G20 Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance. The G20 YEA is a global network of approximately 500,000 entrepreneurs who help build a community around their business acumen to contribute and enhance the global economy. Colin also participates in many entrepreneurial panels locally and abroad to share his in-depth knowledge and expertise in growing businesses.
