His leadership, wisdom and commitment to everyone at Pomeroy is unparalleled,” Watts said. “I am genuinely humbled by the opportunity to follow Chris as Pomeroy’s CEO and confident in our future. We are a team of customer obsessed technology services professionals that are poised to redefine the workplace, and embrace a greater purpose with our customers, partners, and communities. The promotion of John Blackburn as President of Pomeroy is also a decision focusing on growth. John has made many positive contributions to Pomeroy over the last 20 years. His dedication and passion to client obsession is incomparable. I am confident in team Pomeroy and our future.”
