CLOUD PARTNERS — Steadfast (Booth 632), a Chicago-based managed cloud and infrastructure services company with data centers in Chicago and New York, will unveil its new channel programs Wednesday.
As such, Steadfast has announced that it has hired Mark Gierke as its strategic channel manager. Gierke comes to Steadfast from SingleHop, where he served as a channel manager; he also has worked for dinCloud, EnPointe Technologies, StillSecure, CA Technologies, AT&T and other companies, often in channel roles.
Steadfast, which was founded in 1998, is looking for resellers and other channel partners with an IT focus. However, the company also is offering an affiliate program for consultants and other partners who want to earn money for referrals.

To that point, partners will be able to sell all of Steadfast's products and services, either on a wholesale, private-label or co-branded basis. Steadfast provides infrastructure, cloud, colocation, disaster recovery and managed services.
Steadfast said partner benefits include a portal with materials such as videos, case studies, and more; qualified sales lead generation; joint marketing; sales training; dedicated sales team; deal registration; data center tours; ongoing Web-based and on-site training, and more.
