PHONE+ magazine’s annual Channel Executive of the Year poll has named Dan Sterling of NuVox as Channel Executive of the Year 2010. Sterling, along with the other finalists, was recognized Monday at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo and also will be featured in the April issue of PHONE+.
“PHONE+ is proud to honor Dan Sterling for commendable leadership in the channel,” said Mike Saxby, group publisher for PHONE+. “Votes from a multitude of partners show that he deserves recognition for supporting and furthering the success of the indirect channel.”
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.
