Smith Takes the Helm as VP of Partner Sales and Business Development, Central Region
Intelisys today announced the promotion of Brandon Smith to Vice President, Partner Sales and Business Development of the Central Region. Smith, previously the Director of Partner Sales for the region, will now report directly to President Jay Bradley.
In his new role, Smith will leverage his 15-plus years experience in telecom to support Intelisys’ top-performing Sales Partners in the Central Region, which includes TX, OK, LA, AR, KS, MS, MO, NE, IA, IL, IN, MI, WI, MN, ND, OH, and SD. Specifically, Smith will help Sales Partners grow their businesses, create and execute strategic initiatives, and penetrate new markets. In addition, Smith will lead new Sales Partner recruitment efforts in the region and will be responsible for all aspects of sales and sales management.
“Intelisys has one goal – to consistently meet the demands of the country’s top producing Sales Partners,” said Intelisys President Jay Bradley. “Brandon’s promotion is a testament to the fact that he has consistently exceeded their expectations and ours. I couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Brandon to the senior management team.”
Smith’s new role was created to serve the rapidly growing Sales Partner community in the Central Region, which he has supported since joining the Intelisys team in June of 2012. In October 2014 one of Smith’s newest Sales Partners, BroadReach, was named the “Top Growth West” award winner for Intelisys.
“Brandon has been nothing short of amazing to work with. His relentless focus on Sales Partner success has helped us achieve our most aggressive goals,” said BroadReach Owner Tom McKeown. “He always puts his Sales Partners first and has been a critical resource for our success.”
“The Central Region is growing at unprecedented levels and I’m proud to be in the middle of it all,” Smith said. “I’m especially excited about this new role at Intelisys because it enables me to go deeper and support even more Sales Partners in achieving their goals. It’s going to be an exciting 2015.”
