NetFortris, the provider of secure cloud-based communication services, has brought on two new channel managers, previously with RingCentral and Windstream, to augment its sales and support efforts.
Mary Young, formerly a regional channel manager at RingCentral, joins NetFortris as a channel manager supporting the Midwest and West regions. Richard Morris, formerly the mid-Atlantic channel manager with Windstream, joins NetFortris as the channel manager supporting the Northeast.
Together, Young and Morris bring more than 15 years of experience selling and supporting large enterprise clients. Young’s experience includes positions with NetWolves and Nitel, while Morris had stints with EarthLink and then Windstream, as well as MegaPath, iCore Networks and West IP Communications.
“NetFortris has an exploding channel program and we could not be more pleased that two industry proven leaders have joined this outstanding group of channel managers,” said Rob Shelby, NetFortris’ vice president of channel program. “Mary and Rich bring a long history of excellence, work ethic and professionalism. We’re proud to welcome these talented sales and support leaders as we continue to expand and build our strategic channel program.”
Last April, NetFortris launched a consolidated partner program after acquiring Fonality.
Grant Evans, then CEO of NetFortris, talked with us at last spring’s Channel Partners Conference & Expo about the company’s acquisition of Fonality early last year.
