After meeting with Kenneth Fox (CEO) and the company advisory board, it was a very easy decision for me to join Channel Mechanics to lead our worldwide sales team. I like to work with smart business leaders and technology innovators. Channel Mechanics has developed a disruptive business platform that now needs sales leadership to drive global customer adoption.
Having spent much of the previous 10 years of my career in Channel Sales and Alliance Leadership roles, I am truly excited about joining Channel Mechanics who make “channel selling frictionless”. With the launch of our SaaS channel enablement platform, we are “making every channel deal more profitable” for vendors and their distributor / reseller Partners. Some of the most well-known and most respected global brands use our platform and have transacted billions of dollars of business to date.
