“Honoring innovation in channel leadership.” That’s the tagline for Channel Partners’ Circle of Excellence award, which spotlights IT and telecom leaders who are helping their partners create business value for their customers.

The 2013 winners include executives from companies such as Comcast, Oracle, AT&T, Citrix—and Intermedia.

Our very own Bob Leibholz, SVP of Sales & Business Development, is among the honorees.

Intermedia partners understand why. In 2006, Bob brought his vision for Intermedia’s channel program to life. From designing each and every aspect of the program to signing up the first Intermedia partner, Bob was and is extremely hands-on. Which is why, since inception, Bob has led the growth of Intermedia’s channel to 13,000+ partners who leverage Intermedia’s industry-leading partner program to build their cloud business.

Channel Partners conducted a very interesting interview with Bob. You can download it on their website. Here’s how they described his accomplishments over the years:

“As the primary driver behind the Intermedia channel program since its inception, Leibholz has successfully forged relationships with the top distributors and telecom providers in the industry and registered more than 13,000 partners. Leibholz has advocated for increased channel training and staff, in particular, to assist the emerging cloud partner channel. As a result of these efforts, the company’s channel revenue has grown 35 percent year over year.”

All of us at Intermedia congratulate Bob.
