Felise Katz started her IT journey right out of college. Early on Felise started working with and for mid-size companies that needed to improve their operational excellence and communication in and for their customers. This ultimately led to her vision of what an Enterprise Solution Provider should be providing for its clients and started PKA where she assumed the CEO position in 2009.
Always challenged with the IT channel being male dominated, Felise continues to thrive on the daily tests that come her way. Today, Felise is proud to be recognized nationally as a woman-owned business enterprise by WBENC. PKA also has official women-owned status with the New York State (New York City) Department of Economic Development, Division of Minority and Women’s Business Services, and Division of Economic and Financial Opportunity.
Felise Katz has also been nationally recognized by CRN magazine as one of the top “Women of the Channel”, an honor she’s earned for the past six consecutive years.
