Oppold to Serve as Senior Manager, Strategic Partner Development, Mountain Region
Petaluma, CA (October 29, 2015) – Intelisys Communications, Inc., the nation’s leading Technology Services Distributor, has announced the addition of new Senior Manager, Strategic Partner Development, Mountain Region, to its team of regional channel managers. A 13-year industry veteran, Chris Oppold has worked as a channel manager in various formats for at least the last 11 years, and has held channel-facing roles with CenturyLink, Zayo and Integra, with a strong focus on cloud-based services.
“Being in the carrier space, I always had one answer, regardless of the question,” said Oppold. “By joining the Intelisys team, this changes entirely. I am most excited about being in a space now where, as a channel manager, I can help illuminate my Sales Partners’ businesses. With access to the Intelisys Supplier Portfolio, we can sit down, listen to their customers’ needs, and recommend solutions—from the best carriers and vendors in the world—that work for each individual customer’s needs.”
The Mountain Region covers Intelisys Sales Partners in Colorado [Oppold is Denver-based], Idaho, Utah, Montana, New Mexico and Wyoming. He reports to Chad Arnold, Director, Partner Sales – Northwest/Mountain Region.
“Intelisys exists to support our Sales Partners’ business, and to help them grow,” said Arnold. “We’re seeing tremendous growth in the Mountain Region, and Chris was the ideal person to take on the unique opportunities and challenges our Sales Partners in that area face. He is a long-time resident of Denver, and knows the region extensively. His knowledge of cloud-based services is exceptional, and we are all looking forward to seeing how he can help move the needle for our valued Sales Partners in the Mountain Region. Chris came to us as a direct recommendation from one of our long-standing Supplier Partners, and we knew he’d be a great fit from the beginning.”
Intelisys is proud to offer its Sales Partners dedicated, regional support across the United States. While businesses today are often globally-focused, and the Internet has made nearly all businesses today globally-facing, the Technology Services Distributor is committed to local, hands on support of its now approximately 2000 Sales Partners across the United States.
“I have extensive master agent experience, and the caliber of the overall Intelisys experience—from support, to events, to Sales Partner success—is astounding,” said Oppold. “The scale with which we face the world is significant. I’m proud to be part of this team, and grateful to have the opportunity to impact the businesses of the Sales Partners in my region.”
