The story began with a college business plan. Many great entrepreneurial tales start with two innovators inspired by an initial idea. In 1988, Tim and Eric Crown began their story in this fashion. With a business plan that took root in a college assignment and a cash advance from a credit card, they established Hard Drives International — the company that would become Insight.
It is now celebrating 30 years of innovation where it has helped businesses all over the world trace new paths with Insight Intelligent Technology Solutions™. Its expanded offerings enable organizations to effectively manage today while simultaneously transforming the future.

The Decision Maker
Ken Lamneck | President and Chief Executive Officer
“Information technology is the best industry in the world, transforming and disrupting many other industries for the better. This disruption is increasing in speed and creating significant opportunities that impact how it lives, create and do business.”
Ken Lamneck doesn’t believe in settling for the present. He is fascinated with the future and technology, and the way each inspires the other. This interest and vision have driven Ken from the West Point Military Academy to Insight, where he leads the company as chief executive officer.
After five years in the U.S. Army, Ken began his civilian career as an IBM engineer. But he found that sales and marketing better suited his competitive spirit and the servant leadership principles he learned while in uniform.
Ken honed his technical knowledge and people skills while rising through the ranks at Arrow Electronics. As president of Arrow’s Industrial Computer Products business, he was drawn to the rapid pace of innovation in the emerging IT industry. He moved to Tech Data Corp., where he directed its growth and operations across the United States, Canada, and Latin America.
In 2010, Ken joined Insight. His approachable, hands-on leadership style can be seen in Insight’s corridors every day, as he motivates teammates and aligns their efforts with Insight's strategy to help clients manage their business today and transform for the future.
