This week marks the beginning of a new tradition – a (mostly) weekly blog article dedicated to the current happenings in and around Intelisys.
Celebrating Carol Beering
We’re going to stretch the rules and first look back to last week, when Carol Beering, Intelisys’ incomparable Senior VP, Sales Operations, was named to the CRN Women of the Channel 2015 list. We spoke to Jenny Izzo, Director, Executive Operations, for Platinum Partner Subsidium Technologies, who Carol has been mentoring this year, for a little insight into what sets Carol apart.
“Carol has really pushed me to get out of my comfort zone and face things from a new and different perspective – as a supervisor with a stake in the business, instead of an employee focused on the day-to-day,” Izzo told us.
Intelisys made the news this week when South Central Region Channel Manager Eddie Acosta was quoted by examiner.com as an expert source on B2B Sales. In the article, “Attracting Your Tribe: 5 Ways to Stand Out in the B2B Sales Industry”, Eddie weighed in on what it takes to keep customers coming back. Read Eddie’s advice, and the full article, here.

This week also marked the start of Partner Exchange season – a lineup of fantastic, smaller events that connect Sales Partners with information, training and networking at various locations around the county.
First, Channel Manager Karla Roarty and VP Partner Sales & Business Development Rick Ribas led the Southeast Partner Exchange at Old Car Heaven in Birmingham, AL. Classic cars, cocktails and Cloud. What could be better? Much appreciation goes to ACC Business, Bright House Networks, BullsEye Telecom, Earthlink, Windstream and WOW! Business for sponsoring the Partner Exchange!
Then, the Northeast Partner Exchange kicked off in New York at the Woodcliff Hotel & Spa, followed by a wine tasting tour at Seneca Lake. Thanks to IntelePeer, Time Warner Cable / NaviSite, Frontier, Lightower and Vonage Business for sponsoring this awesome event!
RCN & Intelisys Get Cozy
Supplier Partner RCN launched a Channel Program earlier this year, and this week officially announced that Intelisys is part of its agent program, which is designed to provide select national and regional telecom agents and systems integrators with the resources and support to sell RCN’s portfolio of IP-based data and voice communications services to enterprise and small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).
