Chris Wilkinson, President at DLT Solutions
Chris Wilkinson, as president at DLT Solutions, directs the company’s daily operations and Tech Data’s public sector strategy.
Previously, he was the senior vice president for sales, in charge of managing and expanding the organization’s capabilities in cybersecurity, cloud computing, enterprise platforms and IT infrastructure, the company said.
Marty Bauerlein, Tech Data’s senior vice president for sales in North America, said Wilkinson is a leader who can head the company’s public sector offerings.
Since joining the company in 2017, he has contributed to transforming DLT into a leading software and cloud solutions aggregator in the public sector market, according to Bauerlein.
Wilkinson played a major role in growing the organization’s capabilities in six core technology domains, including application lifecycle, big data and analytics, business applications, cybersecurity, cloud computing, enterprise platforms and IT infrastructure.
He was instrumental in Tech Data’s purchase of DLT in November 2019. The acquisition is meant to expand the company’s public sector business and maintain its presence as the distributor and solutions aggregator for the federal, state, local and education markets.
Adam Robinson, CEO and founder of Govplace, said Wilkinson spearheaded DLT’s main partner programs that improve the company’s growth. He collaborated with technology vendors and channel partners to align their products and go-to-market strategies to serve the needs of government customers.
Before joining the company, he spent almost 12 years at the immixGroup, serving in various roles of increasing responsibility. His most recent role was senior director for market development cybersecurity and emerging markets sales responsible for the company’s capabilities in cybersecurity, big data and analytics, cloud computing, enterprise mobility, IT infrastructure and business and operations applications.
During his stint, Wilkinson was also in charge of enhancing technical fluency among the employees and managing the company’s lead generation and new client acquisition efforts.
He began his professional career as an account executive for a year at DHL’s Worldwide Express.
Wilkinson graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a bachelor’s degree in business administration.
