Congratulations to Curt Mark, a 2016 CRN Channel Chief!

When someone gets named a Channel Chief by CRN® (a brand of The Channel Company) it’s a pretty big deal. When you get on the list two years in a row? Now that’s a really spectacular achievement.

I’m so excited that we have a two-time Channel Chief winner here at Intermedia: our very own Curt Mark, Vice President of Channel Sales.

CRN Channel Chiefs list honors channel leaders

As you know, the Channel Chiefs list honors influential executives who represent the top leaders in the IT channel. These are people who excel at driving growth and revenue in their organizations through channel partners.

CRN’s editorial staff selects Channel Chief honorees 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. And I’m sure you’ll agree that each of the 2016 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated loyalty and ongoing support for the IT channel by consistently promoting, defending and executing outstanding channel partner programs.

The 2016 CRN Channel Chiefs list is featured in the February 2016 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/channelchiefs.

Curt Mark empowers Intermedia partners 

What has Curt done to win this prestigious honor? Well for starters, under his leadership this past year, Intermedia has grown its active base to 6,000+ partners. Simultaneously, we have significantly increased the number of partners that sell multiple cloud service to their customers.

I asked Doug Johnson, our Senior Vice President of Sales, for his thoughts on Curt’s achievements:

“While other vendors have decreased partner commissions and margins, under Curt’s guidance and leadership, Intermedia has enabled its partners to increase both. This considerable feat has been achieved through strategic investments in our private label reseller program, along with marketing tools and educational resources. Curt continues to be instrumental in our efforts to improving our partners’ profitability and ease of doing business with us. We congratulate Curt on this prestigious recognition for the second year running.”

Curt also spearheaded the development and implementation of an end-to-end strategy that lets Intermedia partners market to key verticals – medical, legal and finance. These programs include bundles of products that address the specific security and compliance needs of each industry, as well as packaged go-to-marketing tools for the partners that serve them.
