Double Recognition from CRN for Intermedia COO Jonathan McCormick—the Most Influential Channel Chief for 2019
2019 has gotten off to a great start with 2 big wins from CRN…
First, CRN published it’s 2019 list of Channel Chiefs, and our very own COO and Head of Sales, Jonathan McCormick, made the list. But that wasn’t all. Jonathan was named MOST INFLUENTIAL for 2019 as well!
The Channel Chiefs list features the 50 executives who are “the best of the best—leaders who build, support, and deliver superior partner programs and strategy.” Here’s how CRN describes the award:
Channel Chief honorees are selected by CRN’s editorial staff as a result of their professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the channel partner community, and strategies for driving future growth and innovation. Each of the 2019 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated loyalty and ongoing support for the channel by consistently promoting, defending and executing outstanding partner programs. However, only 50 of those were selected for the Most Influential list, each singled out for his or her prominent role in guiding and shaping the IT channel itself.
And Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company, offers this perspective:
The individuals on CRN’s 2019 Channel Chiefs list deserve special recognition for their contribution and support in the development of robust partner programs, innovative business strategies, and significant influence to the overall health of the IT channel. We applaud each Channel Chief’s remarkable record of accomplishments and look forward to following their continued success.
We are really excited about Jonathan’s win, and we feel being named MOST INFLUENTIAL is rightly deserved. Jonathan has been instrumental in building opportunities for Intermedia partners to drive high profits selling Intermedia Unite™, our flagship unified communications solution. Here’s Jonathan’s take on how Intermedia makes UCaaS easy for partners to sell and generate revenue from:
Whether partners sell under our Private Label or Advisor partnership models, we support them with everything they need to be successful–before, during, and after the sale. This 360-degree approach to partner success we provide means partners receive all of the sales, marketing, training, and technical support they need to help them achieve strong margins, and realize healthy, recurring revenue streams. We will even handle billing and the complex taxation issues for partners. Our goal is to help partners focus more on those activities that drive profit and less on those that can cut into margins, so they can keep more of what they earn.
Congratulations, Jonathan! And thanks for being such an inspirational leader for Intermedia and our partners.
