Intermedia’s SVP of Product Management, Irina Shamkova, Named to Power 100 of CRN’s Most Powerful Women Of The Channel 2019

It’s another double win for Intermedia’s senior leadership! This time Irina Shamkova, our SVP of Product Management, has been named not only one of CRN’s Women of the Channel list for 2019, but she’s also been named as one of the Power 100 – a select subset of the larger list that represents “the female executives whose insight and influence help drive channel success.”

CRN editors choose the list from a multitude of channel leadership applicants and select the final honorees based on their professional accomplishments, demonstrated expertise, and ongoing dedication to the IT channel.

Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company describes it this way:

“CRN’s 2019 Women of the Channel list honors influential leaders who are accelerating channel growth through mutually-beneficial partnerships, incredible leadership, strategic vision, and unique contributions in their field. This accomplished group of leaders is driving channel success and we are proud to honor their achievements.”

And the Power 100 list is the crème de la crème of this already exalted group of women. So, we’re extra excited that Irina has been added to this roster and is being recognized for her significant contributions to channel partner success. Under Irina’s leadership, our Product Management team has built Intermedia Unite™, our flagship unified communication and collaboration solution, with a focus on the needs of our partners.

When asked how she views her role at Intermedia as a channel leader, she had this to say:

“I am so passionate about we do here at Intermedia and how we are helping transform how partners succeed in the cloud! We built Unite to help partners easily and profitably tap into the growing UCaaS market, giving them everything they need to be successful. We wanted to make a solution that combined all the features their customers want with the reliability and call quality that drives satisfaction and loyalty. Plus, we back with brandable marketing collateral, sales support, J.D. Power-certified 24/7 tech support, and we even handle the billing and taxation for them… all in an effort to give our partners the best possible opportunity to increase their bottom line.”

Congratulations, Irina! And thanks for being such an inspirational leader for Intermedia and our partners.
