The list consists of community and industry leaders championing innovation, leadership and community service through corporate giving, board service and volunteerism.

Bryan has been instrumental in orchestrating Insight’s growth strategy, including completion of 11 acquisitions since 2008. The acquisitions have expanded Insight’s operations to 19 countries and brought strong expertise in emerging cloud and crucial edge-based technologies.
“As a soft-spoken girl from Jamaica, I never thought I would help shape a global Fortune 500 company that is influencing how the world’s largest brands use technology to evolve,” said Bryan. “I am grateful to be in such a pivotal industry during times of massive change, and incredibly thankful for our Insight teammates who excel in technology but also highly value personal relationships as we make the meaningful connections that help businesses run smarter. It is an honor to be recognized by the Phoenix Business Journal alongside so many deserving Valley business leaders and to work for a company that shares my personal values of putting people first in all that we do.”
Bryan has helped define the company’s now familiar hunger, heart and harmony core values to challenge the status quo, make a positive impact, and embrace diverse perspectives.
