Armin Weiler

Executive Editor, ChannelPartner

Armin Weiler

Executive Editor

Armin Weiler has been a member of the ChannelPartner team since 2008. As chief reporter (Chefreporter), he takes care of the research-intensive and investigative stories about the ICT channel and distribution topics. He is also responsible for the hardware sector. His areas of expertise therefore include PCs, smartphones, printers, displays and input devices.

Furthermore, Armin invented the unique event “CP-Race”. It is a ski race for the IT industry that takes place annually in the Austrian Alps. It is, so to speak, the unofficial German IT ski championship in giant slalom and serves primarily to network and maintain contacts with resellers, distributors and manufacturers.

Armin came from Computer Reseller News to ChannelPartner, and before that he worked in the international PR network Axicom, where he also looked after distribution customers. This gives him more than two decades of experience in the channel. For him, network is not only an IT term, but an important guideline for personal interaction with the players in the channel.

Armin holds a master’s degree (Magister Artium) in communication sciences from the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität in Münster, Germany.

Even though working for ChannelPartner and IDG is mostly a pleasure, Armin also enjoys free time outside of the job. Then he enjoys spending time with his family in the nearby Alps, hiking and mountain biking in the summer and skiing and snowboarding in the winter. He also volunteers as a ski and snowboard instructor for various non-profit associations.
