Joanna Strong

“There’s no 9 to 5 here,” Joanna says. “Customer businesses run 24/7 and we’re available 24/7.” Our always-on help desk has experts that respond no matter what time of day or night.  We service mission-critical hardware and always have at least two technicians on call.

Joanna wants Commerx to be your IT Solutions Partner, to earn customer trust – and repeat business – through integrity and honesty, the values her father, Founder and Chairman Eddo Muzzatti, built this firm on.   A firm that prides itself on its agility and its ability to deliver customized services to organizations of all sizes and types.  “Unrivalled service and solutions boil down to an acute understanding of customer needs.  And I believe Commerx has exactly that.”

Today at the Estates of Sunnybrook in Toronto, CDN, along with founding sponsor Ingram Micro and gold sponsors Cisco Systems and SAP AG, partnered for the fourth annual CDN Women of the IT Channel Recognition Luncheon.

The event is held to celebrate the achievement of women in the IT channel, and provide inspiration and mentorship and inspiration to women considering a career in the technology field. This year, four women were singled-out for special recognition.

CDN is proud to honour Joanna Strong, president and CEO of Commerx.

When Eddo Muzzatti founded this firm in 1984, delivering exceptional value to customers defined his vision of Commerx. When he passed the torch to his daughter Joanna nearly 30 years later she remained true to this vision.

Since joining Commerx in 1988, Joanna has held nearly every position in the company.  From working in the warehouse, admin and accounting roles, to marketing (including event planning), inside and outside sales, purchasing and most recently as the Vice President of Operations – these Twenty-five years immersed in this firm has groomed her for her current role as President and CEO today.
