Shannon Martin, known to agents as a key contact at TMC Communications and GLOBALINX, has landed the role of channel manager for SimpleSignal.
Martin knows the indirect channel well, having worked with agents for 11 years. She comes to SimpleSignal, a cloud unified communications and collaboration provider, from IP services provider GLOBALINX; she served as agent sales director after GLOBALINX bought TMC in 2010. More than a year after that transaction closed, Martin is moving to SimpleSignal.
“In this industry, its important to be able to stay ahead of the technological curve,” she said. “My decision to come to SimpleSignal was largely based on the fact that they understand where the industry as a whole is headed and arent afraid to move beyond traditional products. SimpleSignal is bringing advanced unified communications solutions to the channel, and I saw an opportunity to become a part of that.”
Dave Gilbert, CEO of SimpleSignal, called Martin “a proven salesperson with great contacts within the indirect channel,” and someone understands the future of unified communications.
“We need people like her on our team that recognize this and are ready to capitalize on the opportunity,” Gilbert said.
Martin is well known to agents. She started with TMC in 2001 and, in 2009, was voted a Top 15 Channel Manager by Channel Partners readers.
