Channel Partners Honors Ribas’ Leadership, Vision and Innovation within the Channel
Petaluma, CA (April 12, 2017) – Intelisys Inc., a ScanSource company and the nation’s leading Technology Services Distributor, has announced that SVP East Region, Rick Ribas, has been selected as a winner of the 2017 Channel Partners Circle of Excellence Awards.
Channel Partners editors selected Circle of Excellence winners for their leadership in the industry, the channel or their company; and their advocacy for channel support and resources within their own company. The Circle of Excellence award honors executives for their vision, innovation and advocacy of the indirect channel during a time of transition and convergence.
“Rick’s singular focus on supporting our Partners makes him a true leader,” said Jay Bradley, Intelisys President. “As the indirect channel continues to shift toward convergence between the IT and telecom channels, we are witnessing some of the most significant opportunity in its history. Rick has played a critical role in the extraordinary growth of our East Region, and contributed greatly to the success of our Sales Partners. We are very pleased that Rick’s dedication to leading our Sales Partners to new levels of excellence and success has been recognized by Channel Partners.”
Ribas joined Intelisys in 2010 as Vice President, and was promoted to Senior Vice President, East Region, in 2015. Adept at facilitating new growth, Ribas is responsible for growing and managing Intelisys’ fastest growing region. In his nearly seven years with Intelisys, Ribas contributed to record-breaking annual revenue growth for the East Region, leading to the build of a brand-new Connecticut office, which opened in December 2015. In 2017, it is expected that Ribas’ region will expand its support team of Channel Managers and Solutions Engineers throughout New England, Tennessee and the Southeast, providing support and resources to help Sales Partners grow their recurring revenue businesses.
“I am honored to serve such an incredible group of Sales Partners, and am grateful to support them as they reach new levels of achievement and success during this shift to convergence,” said Rick Ribas. “The opportunities are huge, and will continue to grow over the coming years. I am committed to supporting our Partner community as they experience this tremendous growth, and to providing the level of service their customers demand and deserve.”
