IPR International this week named its first channel chief.
Kirk Horton is the Pennsylvania-based IaaS provider’s new vice president of channels and partners; he comes from a role with the same title at interconnection and data center provider Telx.
To be sure, Horton built the Telx channel program, and will do the same for IPR.
“This was an opportunity for me to come in here and do what I do best: build something at the foundational level, put my fingerprint and blueprints on that program, and reach out to the well-respected and established relationships I have in the channel community to acquaint them with this new venture I am embarking upon," Horton said.
Horton has worked in the tech channel for 20 years. Prior to Telx, he held channel and sales roles at Globix, Digital Island, and SpeedERA (now Akamai).
