Intelisys’ Marano Voted a Channel Partners Top Channel Manager

ORLANDO–Channel Partners magazine, the resource for the telecommunications indirect sales channel, on Wednesday announced Intelisys Communications’ Justin Marano as a Top 15 Channel Manager.

"We are pleased to once again honor the year’s top channel managers," said Khali Henderson, editor-in-chief of Channel Partners. "Each one has earned the demonstrated respect and loyalty of their partners, and it’s a pleasure to be able to recognize the winners for a sixth straight year."

Each year since 2007, Channel Partners readers have voted for their top 15 channel managers. For the 2012 contest, agents, VARs, dealers, interconnects, brokers and consultants in July nominated 71 candidates; then, in an online ballot available July 17-Aug. 23, more than 700 of those qualified channel partners chose the final 15. Eight of the winners are new to the Channel Partners Top 15 Channel Managers lineup; of the seven making a reappearance, two are four-time winners and four are three-time winners. Marano is a three-time winner.

All Top 15 Channel Manager recipients were honored today during the general session of the Fall 2012 Channel Partners Conference & Expo in Orlando. For a full rundown of the results, click here. Winners also are profiled in the October issue of Channel Partners magazine and online in an exclusive, lighter-side photo gallery that went live at 1 p.m. Eastern time.

Marano has worked as senior manager of strategic partner development for Intelisys for one year; he has been in the indirect channel for 10 years. Over the next year, Marano predicted the channel continuing to take shape in a certain way.

"I see business partners committing more to master agents since carrier channel programs are focusing more resources and support that way," he said. "There will also be an increase in revenue as business partners take advantage of commissions for ‘aaS’ solutions that were previously not an option for them to offer their end users."

Intelisys Club TPC – Frequently Asked Questions

Club TPC is just one of the dozens of benefits that telecom agents take advantage of when they work with the Intelisys family.  Running a small business is hard.  Running a super-achieving small business is even harder.

So at Intelisys, we believe in rewarding our over-achieving sales partners in the belief that it helps to motivate them to achieve more.

 At the same time, it’s our way of saying, "Congratulations" and "Thank You".

Some aspects of the program can be confusing to some however.  We’ve answered three of the most common misconceptions about the TPC Program below:

Questions #1: Where are you getting Sales Partner Revenue numbers from?  The numbers I’m getting in my email don’t match my actual numbers.

Answer:  We use the AVERAGE of sales partner revenue numbers over a three month period to generate an MBR, not single month revenues.  If you billed $100k in month 1, $200k in month 2, and $300k in month 3, your Monthly Billing Revenue (MBR) would be (100+200+300)/3=$200k

Question #2:  What is the difference between the Club TPC TRIP and the Club TPC BENEFITS.

Answer:  Club TPC MEMBERSHIP gets you assistance with hotel and airfare to Channel Connect and free access to the Intelisys mentorship resources.

The level of your Channel Connect hotel and airfare assistance is dependent on your TPC membership level.  The free mentorship means that Club TPC members get to leverage the knowledge of hundreds of years of experience in the channel and in business, through personal mentoring by some of the best minds in the industry in seven different business categories.  In addition, they get added support services on top of what non-club TPC members receive.

The Club TPC TRIP is open to all sales partners, including non-Club TPC members.  Those who qualify for the Club TPC TRIP get airfare, hotel and other expenses paid for, at an exotic vacation destination in pre-determined places throughout the world.

Question #3:  Do all Club TPC Members Qualify for the Travel Assistance to Channel Connect?

All Silver, Gold and Platinum member qualify automatically.   Bronze

members must continuously increase their MBR each year, to the measure of 10% per year.

So if the bronze member’s MBR in 2011 was $100k, to qualify for the Channel Connect airfare assistance, the minimum 3 month MBR for 2012 will be $110K ($100k x 110%).

If you have any questions about Club TPC, don’t hesitate to call

800.615.8330 for more information.
