MWA Intelligence, Inc. (MWA) is a master value-added reseller (MVAR) and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for SAP Business One and leader in enterprise resource planning software (ERP). Our primary goal is to provide the imaging channel with FORZA, the most prolific management software product in the marketplace, that withstands modern business challenges and delivers proven results to lead dealerships well into the future of digital transformation. But we are so much more than just another business software company and it’s a true testament to our community in the MWA FORZA family. Our success is a result of providing a friendly atmosphere that encourages imagination, initiation, and innovation. What better way to find out first hand than from MWA’s very own FORZA team dedicated to providing exceptional customer service and supporting the needs of our wonderful clients!
Our next team member to be introduced might seem like a familiar face from last year’s rendition of the FORZA spotlight because, well, he is! Derek Hile, one of MWA’s many interns from last year, has returned to the company full-time. From Latrobe, Pennsylvania, Derek has spent most of his life growing up in his hometown where he went on to complete his secondary education at Saint Vincent College and is a recent graduate as a member of the class of 2017. That is right people, the third straight alumnus spotlighted from Saint Vincent College (Go Bearcats!).
Being from the western region in Pennsylvania, it comes as no surprise that Derek is a Pittsburgh sports enthusiast. He has an interesting connection to one of his leisure passions – hitting the links – as the “King” of golf, Arnold Palmer, grew up in the same hometown as Derek. Some of his other interests include cruising the open roads in his brand-new Ford Mustang or spending the weekends hiking and firing up the grill.
Some interesting facts about Derek include: favorite movie is Bridesmaids, favorite color is green and sharing a name with his father, making Derek a Jr. Being the sweet guy that he is, Derek would like to give a shout out to his wonderful girlfriend Annie who, coincidentally, works with SAP software as well; thus, solidifying a spot in the SAP power couples’ competition… if only such a competition existed. While being far away from home and family, the cold weather and rain take partial blame for his escape to the glorious sunshine and dry heat of Arizona.
Derek has been working at MWA since graduating in early May this year. In his role as FORZA Support and Implementation Consultant, Derek enjoys providing benchmarking service to MWA clients and delivering the greatest customer experience possible. Derek would also like to take this time to thank everyone at MWA who has helped in progressing his knowledge in SAP and FORZA as well as creating an amazing work environment for everyone to succeed.
