Readers Decide 2011s Top 15 Channel Managers

Once again, readers of Channel Partners magazine have chosen their Top 15 Channel Managers. In fact, the finalists were so popular that there was a tie and, for the second year in a row, the contest actually encompasses the Top 16 winners.

These telecom professionals were nominated by master agents, subagents and independent agents and selected by a poll of Channel Partners readers and supporters July 5-22. More than 750 votes were received for 80 candidates. Several of this years winners are repeat winners. They were honored Wednesday afternoon in a ceremony at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo in Chicago.

Here are the winners, in alphabetical order by last name:

  • Nickie Beckstead, Integra Telecom, Senior Channel Manager
  • Steven Cawley, Integra Telecom, Senior Manager, Indirect Sales
  • Vin Garofano, Windstream, District Dealer Manager
