Boston, MA., February 23, 2011 – Intronis today announced that Ted Roller has been named a Channel Chief by the Everything Channel’s CRN. Channel Chiefs are leaders in creating effective channel programs for solution providers. They consistently defend, promote and execute effective channel partner programs and strategies.
Over the last year Roller has been working with the channel and our MSP partners to craft a channel program at Intronis that is second to none in the industry, and the work has only just begun. In 2011, Intronis will launch new products, programs and departments all focused on strengthening the value for the IT channel. Stay tuned for PSA and RMM integration announcements within 2011 that will push the envelope and redefine time savings, efficiency and value in the marketplace.
This year’s Channel Chiefs were chosen based by Everything Channel editorial on criteria including policy and program innovations made during the past year, the amount of revenue their company generates through partners, their willingness to speak out publicly on behalf of the channel, and the number of years they have dedicated to channel activities.
“Being able to work closely with someone who spent the first twenty years of his career as a reseller / MSP is one of the keys to our success”, commented Kent Plunkett, CEO at Intronis. “Roller knows the channel from both the reseller and the vendor perspective intuitively – we have our customer’s voice in the room every time we make a product or marketing decision. It makes a huge difference.”
“Being named a Channel Chief is one of the most prestigious honors in the IT industry. This year’s Channel Chiefs offer tremendous insight into the who’s who of the Channel,” said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, Everything Channel. “Top channel executives consistently ensure that the Channel’s voice is heard when strategic decisions are being made and continually nurture mutually profitable relationships. We applaud this year’s Channel Chiefs for their successful partner programs and strategies.”
