PHONE+ magazine has named J. Sherman Henderson III of Lightyear Network Solutions as Channel Executive of the Year 2009. Henderson, along with the other finalists were recognized during yesterday’s Welcoming Remarks and will also be featured in the April issue of PHONE+.
“PHONE+ is proud to honor Sherm Henderson for exemplary leadership in the indirect channel,” said Mike Saxby, group publisher for PHONE+. “The votes show that he deserves recognition for supporting and furthering the success of channel partners.”
To determine the Channel Executive of the Year, PHONE+ solicited nominations and votes from channel partners. To be eligible, a nominee must have been the top person in the company’s channel operations — at the executive level of vice president or higher — at a telecom vendor (network operator/service provider/manufacturer). Channel partners were then asked to vote for the Channel Executive of the Year based on nominees’ leadership, longevity, innovation and contribution to the indirect channel.
