Once again, thank you for all your efforts! Let’s do it again in 2012!
There is no question that we had an amazing year in 2010 thanks to you, our Sales Partners, and yet again we’ve received another award to show for it. This time, it is Level 3 that has presented us with an award for being their #1 Partner for “Most New Sales in 2010”. We were also recognized for having the highest Sales Partner participation for Level 3 in 2010.
We could not be more proud to share this enormous honor with our Sales Partner Community. The award was received at the Awards Dinner during Channel Partners in Las Vegas March 13th-15th. This honor shows the rest of the Channel that our Sales Partner community is truly made up of the Channel’s hardest working, top-producing sales professionals.
“Level 3 has built a successful program that supports a nationally distributed partner community such as ours,” says Carol Beering, our VP of Sales Operations at Intelisys. “We’d like to thank Level 3 for this coveted acknowledgment that reflects the success and excellence of our Sales Partners, who trust Intelisys enough to put their business with us,” she adds.
Level 3 is the leading international provider of fiber-based communications services and a valued, long-standing Supplier Partner for Intelisys.
“We are grateful to Intelisys and their sales community for their outstanding participation and efforts in 2010,” says Nigel Williams, Senior Vice President of Enterprise Sales and Strategic Alliances at Level 3. “We congratulate them on their achievement and look forward to strengthening our partnership in 2011,” Williams adds.
Many thanks to all of you for your continued hard work. We look forward to seeing you at this year’s Channel Connect in San Francisco! You should have received your invitation to Channel Connect via email but if you did not, please contact Jennie Kimmel at 707.238.8116.
You Did It Again!
Yet again, Intelisys has been recognized with another award thanks to the continued hard-work of the best Sales Partners in the Channel, YOU! On April 15th, Channel Partners Online Magazine announced that Intelisys was named one of MegaPath’s Top Partners of 2010. As a 2011 Platinum Supplier Partner for Intelisys, MegaPath has shown great commitment to our partnership and we are truly grateful. We look forward to another great year with MegaPath in 2011.
Our partnership with MegaPath is one of our most successful and valued relationships at Intelisys. We are honored to be recognized as one of their Top Partners for 2010. This honor also belongs to the many outstanding Intelisys Sales Partners who have contributed to this significant achievement.
“Intelisys continues to be a strong Partner of MegaPath (and formally Covad) since joining their Partner Program in 2003. They were our 2nd largest Partner for 2010 by new Revenue for the combined companies (Speakeasy, Covad, and MegaPath) that now make up MegaPath. They are one of our largest Partners in terms of total billing and rank in the top 4,” says Eric Beller, Vice President of Channel Sales of MegaPath. “We are very excited to see our relationship grow as we now have a stronger offering of services and footprint than each stand-alone company could offer separately. I expect Intelisys to maintain their position as a top 5 Partner for 2011 and expect to see them challenge our top spot as we continue to increase our fair share with them. Intelisys is always seen as a benchmark for how we look at our other Partners,” Beller adds.
We couldn’t be more proud of the exceptional efforts of our Sales Partner Community this past year. 2011 is shaping up to be even more successful and we look forward to showing you our full appreciation at this year’s Channel Connect in San Francisco.
