RapidScale is bringing on a new hire to manage its channel efforts in the western U.S.

RapidScale's Chris MoreiraChris Moreira will be responsible for managing and developing partnerships and improving partner experience. Agents, carriers, VARs, MSPs and master agents will look to him for market education, training and sales support.

Moreira, who comes from a non-channel background and served in the U.S. Marines Corps for the previous nine years, landed the job after getting a referral from Andrew Laughter, who manages channel for RapidScale’s eastern region.

Moreira said he chose the company in part because of its commitment to partner experience.

“I was instantly drawn into RapidScale’s team environment and expertise of the industry’s most reliable and comprehensive products and services,” he said. “I look forward to working closely with our partners in the West Region and helping customers obtain the best business solutions to meet their strategic long-term goals.”{ad}

He most recently served as a communications battalion manpower officer for the Marines and has worked as an MV-22 Osprey pilot and a flight operations manager. He is currently working on his MBA at the University of North Carolina.

RapidScale CEO Randy Jeter said Moreira is a proven winner and leader.

“Chris has been a leader for our country, which I am thankful for, and is working hard to complete an MBA from UNC,” Jeter said. “For me, the character Chris brings to RapidScale and his passion for success will resonate throughout the company. This is why Chris will not only be a winner for RapidScale, but he will quickly be seen as a go-to person for our thousands of channel partners in the Western Region.”

Moreira will work out of Irvine, California.

Earlier this month, RapidScale brought on Andrew Davis to serve as vice president of partner experience — a role where he will manage the company’s relationship with Intelisys.
