Intelisys today announed the hiring of Mark Phaneuf as Senior Manager, Strategic Partner Development, for the New England Region. Phaneuf will report to Justin Marano, Director of Partner Sales in the Northeastern Region.
Phaneuf will serve Intelisys Sales Partners in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine by providing them with comprehensive business support. In addition, Phaneuf will develop and execute recruitment initiatives to help grow Intelisys’ community of top producing Sales Partners.
“Our Sales Partners are a high-achieving community composed of passionate, committed professionals that thrive when supported with white-glove service,” said Rick Ribas, VP of Partner Sales & Development for Intelisys.
“Mark’s leadership, track record of success, and his depth and breadth of industry experience are unparalleled. He’s an energizing veteran in the industry that will truly help our New England Sales Partners stand out in the ‘Sea of Sameness’,” Ribas continued.
Phaneuf comes to Intelisys from XO Communications, where he quickly progressed from Channel Manager to Partner Sales Manager.
“I am so humbled to join this accomplished Intelisys team and support this region of Sales Partners that are trailblazing the quickly converging Channels,” Phaneuf said.
“Supporting such a talented group of Sales Partners is an honor and a privilege and I’m extremely excited to support them in breaking through to new levels of success,” Phaneuf added.
Because the need for innovative telecom and IT solutions in the New England region is exploding, Intelisys is experiencing a surge of interest from telecom agents and VARs in the area. This growth has prompted the demand for a talented new senior manager like Phaneuf.
“The New England Region is growing at an unprecedented rate,” Marano said. “I have admired Mark for years and couldn’t be more thrilled to work with him as he inspires our Sales Partner community to continue exceeding their most aggressive goals.”
