In Memory of

Shorne Beatty

At CDW we recently lost our co-worker Shorne Beatty. Shorne was a highly respected, hard-working person who just got on with the job without complaints and his work benefitted many throughout the business. In his memory I would like everybody to share their experiences with Shorne, it may be one line or it may be a short story, however you word it this for everybody at CDW and NetApp to show their friendship, appreciation and their memories of this great person with his family.

Rest in peace Shorne. Always a friendly face and a real subject matter expert, anything he didn’t know wasn’t worth knowing! He will be sorely missed …

Shorne, the old salty sea dog. He and i worked together all the way back from 2007 and were very successful selling loads into my customers. A fantastic guy, who my customers all loved, and whom I thought of as more of a friend then colleague at times. We always had many a discussion …

I have worked with Shorne for the last 9 years. He was a top genuine guy, he was funny and often grumpy, like me hated idiots! We often enjoyed chats about fixing the world. He had a great level of expertise and knowledge and had a huge impact on NetApp sales and I’m sure …

It goes without saying that Shorne was a diligent, hard working member of the team with a meticulous eye for detail when working on any project large or small. However, the fondest memory of Shorne is as a true gentleman….a very caring soul with a playful sense of humour however hard he tried to …

I had the pleasure of working on a number of deals with Shorne over the years.  He actually joined me on my first customer meeting almost 10 years ago, we didn’t win that one but we had plenty of wins after that.  He once called me on the train just as the doors closed …

Shorne and I worked closely together for the last 9 years.  He was always a much valued friend and colleague who had a huge influence in both the CDW and NetApp communities.  Shorne would always be willing to call a spade a spade, which I always welcomed and found extremely amusing at times. Personality …

I only knew Shorne for a few years as a member of the team I was in, and sadly we never got to work together. We did have several conversations, and he was always such a joy to speak to.. If not for lockdown, I think we’d have spent more time together. He was …

I worked with Shorne on many projects over the years, back to the ISC days.  Whilst I could go on about his amazing work ethic, his levels of expertise and knowledge, his willingness to help and his slightly twisted sense of humor, ultimately, he was just a really good guy and it was my …

I always looked forward to working with Shorne on the many projects we did over the years, if he was busy he could always make time for you, was always willing to help and was always ready with his great sense of humour, he will be very much missed. He loved his hoggies and …

Having worked with Shorne since the ISC days we sat together for the thick end of ten years and what a ride it was. We had some great laughs and a few disagreements but all in good jest.   Shorne always stuck to his principles and what he believed was right and never let …

Shorne, you were always there when needed, going the extra mile on many occassion to support us. I personally worked with you right back to the ISC days and we were successful in winning lots of business together over the years. You were great at your job, sometimes a little grumpy but that didn’t …

From the early days at ISC until very recently at CDW, you have brought out the best in the people you have worked with. As many have said you had a great work ethic and a wicked sense of humour which you sometimes did your best to hide behind a grumpy exterior! Those that …

I appreciated Shorne’s no-nonsense approach, terribly corny jokes, his grouch-factor when something really deserved it. I recall one time when we deployed a new compensation plan after a long time in design and discussion. Shorne deployed his grouch and humour to great effect in making sure we were doing the right thing, and keeping …

I’m very thankful I’ve had the opportunity to work with Shorne and experience his kindness, warmth and sense of humour. I’ll always remember the sound of his voice saying “ello young man”, the cheeky grin and the incredible contribution he’s made over the years. One of the most dedicated, hard working and helpful people …

I only had the pleasure of working for 2 years with Shorne but what a real pleasure it was. Extremely hard working and straight talking, was always there to help and support and let me know who had wound him up that day! He was a self proclaimed grump old man but he must …

I worked with Shorne going back to the days at ISC. My stand out memory of him was when we were working on a large RFP in 2011, my wife was expecting with our 1st (and only) child. I was on a call with Shorne and the rest of the ISC Bid Team when …

Shorne – what an absolute gem of a guy. We had so many laughs, just a couple of  scary disagreements (!), plenty of moans (him to me), jokes (bad ones – again him to me!), and it was just nice chatting when we had some spare time. Shorne was one of the best guys …
