Boxborough, Mass., February 21, 2017 – Egenera, a leading provider of wholesale cloud services to the channel, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Rick Carbone, vice president of North American sales, to its prestigious list of 2017 Channel Chiefs. The executives on this annual list represent top leaders in the IT channel who excel at driving growth and revenue in their organizations through channel partners.
Channel Chief honorees are selected by CRN’s editorial staff on the basis 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 2017 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated loyalty and ongoing support for the IT channel by consistently promoting, defending and executing outstanding channel partner programs.
Egenera’s Xterity Cloud Services are sold exclusively through the channel and were designed from the ground up with product features and programs to make selling, deploying and managing cloud services easy and extremely profitable for partners – far more so than the major (commodity) cloud vendors.
“The executives on our 2017 Channel Chiefs list have distinguished themselves by building strong partner programs, developing and executing effective business strategy and helping to advance the channel as a whole,” said Bob Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “They represent an extraordinary group of individuals who lead by example and serve as both invaluable advocates and innovators of the IT channel. We applaud their achievements and look forward to their successes in the coming year.”
“2016 was a banner year for Xterity, our managed wholesale cloud service. Rick and the entire North American sales team had a record year for Xterity sales and continued to gain momentum in developing a world-class channel program,” said Pete Manca, president and CEO of Egenera.”
Xterity Cloud Services combine the security and reliability of Tier 3 and Tier 3+ datacenters worldwide with enterprise-class hardware and software to deliver wholesale managed private and public cloud IaaS including bare metal, disaster recovery, backup and migration, along with 24x7x365 partner support and assigned account management.
The 2017 CRN Channel Chiefs list is featured in the February 2017 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/channelchiefs.
