Intelisys has hired Bob Farbak, a leading sales producer and channel manager from the Chicago area. In doing so, the master agency has begun an expansion into the Midwest.
As the new senior manager, strategic partner development, for the Midwest region, Farbak will be the point person and local contact for the partner community, including sales partners and VARs in and around Chicago and the surrounding states. Farbak will also lead the efforts to further Intelisys’ relationships with telecom carriers, cloud service providers and other technology partners in the region.
“Bob has unparalleled insight into the Midwest partner community and that made him the clear choice to lead Intelisys’ growth in the region," said Brandon Smith, director of partner sales, Central Region at Intelisys. “He has an impressive and comprehensive track record and a history of successes building strategic partnerships and delivering customized solutions for clients."
Farbak brings with him more than 10 years of industry experience. Most recently, he was a channel manager with XO Communications, where he managed the channel sales program, consisting of brokers, agents, consultants and PBX vendors.
