Chuck Ward Promoted to Vice President of Channel Development at Masergy
Masergy Communications, Inc. today announced its Platinum and Gold Level Members in the Masergy Global Partner Program for its fiscal year 2013.
“Revenue from our Global Partner Program once again grew by more than 20 percent during our last fiscal year. Our continued channel growth is directly attributable to the outstanding collaborative efforts between our partners, employees and customers,” said John Dumbleton, senior vice president of business development for Masergy. “As our Global Partner Program continues its growth as a core company strength, we want to recognise and reward our top-performing partners with Platinum and Gold Level Memberships for 2013.”
Masergy identified 25 partners from its current channel roster of IT solution providers, equipment resellers and independent consultants who attained Platinum or Gold Partner status for fiscal year 2013, based on sales performance in fiscal year 2012 which ended June 30, 2012. Masergy’s fiscal year 2013 Platinum Partners include:
· Avant Communications
· Bridgepointe Technologies
· Business Communications Management
· LinkSource Technologies
· PlanetOne Communications
· Agent Alliance
“With our recent acquisition of Broadcore, we believe our channel partners share our enthusiasm for the immediate opportunity to add a potent and comprehensive suite of secure, cloud communications solutions with guaranteed performance to our existing global network and cloud service offerings. We look forward to the exciting year ahead,” Dumbleton added.
Masergy also promoted Chuck Ward to vice president of channel development, where he will oversee and manage the continuing growth of the Masergy Global Partner Program. Ward was previously director of global partner programs at Masergy.
Each year, Masergy appoints top partners to Platinum and Gold Member status based on sales performance the prior fiscal year. Masergy works in close collaboration with each partner to develop comprehensive strategies for joint-marketing initiatives and revenue growth opportunities. In addition to booking bonuses and supplementary co-marketing funds, these partners are eligible for a number of special services including co-branded case studies and collateral, joint participation and sponsorship on special programs and events – and in the case of Platinum Partners – co-branding on Masergy’s award-winning ISC customer portal and automatic membership to Masergy’s Partner Advisory Board.
