David Brault Named a 2019 IBM Champion

We like to celebrate accomplishments here at LANSA, especially when it involves one of our own receiving a highly regarded award. David Brault, LANSA Product Marketing Manager, has been named a 2019 IBM Champion for his contributions to the IBM community. The IBM Champions program recognizes influencers in the IBM community that shares their knowledge and expertise to help grow and nurture independent communities.

Grant Smith, LANSA Director of Sales, Tools and Solutions, nominated David and said, “Dave has been working on the IBM i since he graduated college and has been touting the benefits of the platform at User Groups and COMMON for the last 20 years. Dave’s also a long-standing member of CAAC, and his input and guidance has helped set the direction and will continue to in the future. We’re ecstatic Dave has finally received the recognition he so richly deserves.”

Since 2007, David has been an involved member of the COMMON Americas Advisory Council (CAAC). The council serves as a liaison between IBM and COMMON and gauges the community’s reaction to strategic IBM decisions and future direction.

A Track Record Worth Highlighting

David’s track record in the application development market certainly speaks for itself. Throughout his 20-year career, David has built an extensive knowledge of integrating various Microsoft, IBM, web and mobile technologies with back-office and ERP systems. David then uses this information to help determine the market direction for LANSA products. In addition, David educates customers and prospects on how LANSA’s diverse tools and solutions solve complex business challenges.

Congratulations, David. We couldn’t be prouder of your accomplishments!
