“Customers are king, and it’s important to cultivate those relationships by providing great service and with solutions that help them achieve their overall business objectives,” said Dan Foster, Senior Vice President of Sales at MegaPath. “Over the last year, MegaPath has seen significant growth in our channel partner program because we are bringing to market innovative voice and data communications services that address the growing demand for increased speed, reliability and quality that businesses require. I am truly honored to have received this recognition from my peers and CRN Magazine.”
This is the seventh consecutive year that CRN has developed the Channel Chief list. Top Channel Chiefs were chosen based 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.
“Effective channel executives consistently ensure that the Channel’s voice is heard when strategic decisions are being made and continually nurture mutually profitable relationships,” said Robert C. DeMarzo, SVP/Editorial Director, Everything Channel. “This year’s Channel Chiefs are strong channel advocates and we applaud them for their successful partner programs and strategies.”
