The company, founded in Leipzig, Germany, hired Mackay as its first ever leader for the Canadian operation. Mackay, a long time senior executive at Microsoft Canada and CompuCom Canada, said the two Microsoft Canada data centres had a significant reason for his company entering the Canadian marketplace, but Mackay added it was not the determining factor.

“Part of our global strategy is to increase our reach and there was great impetus for Canada. Plus we were invited by senior executives from Microsoft Canada to bring a new type of partner to this region that could focus on Microsoft and align to its cloud first strategy,” Mackay said.

Comparex was founded more than 30 years ago and offers Microsoft volume licensing expertise along with software asset management services. The company has 34 locations worldwide and opened up its U.S. office two years ago.

In Canada, Mackay is employing a solutions strategy comprising three types of managed services; two of which are branded UCM (Unified Cloud Management). Under the UCM brand there are two offerings with Office 365 and Azure.
