On Sunday, at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, attendees and exhibitors waited for PHONE+ Editor in Chief Khali Henderson to make a long-awaited announcement. Everyone in the room was on the edge of their seat to find out who had been named Channel Executive of the Year; but what they didn’t know is what danger awaited the lucky winner, Lightyear Network Solutions’ Sherm Henderson.
The audience watched nervously as the super-villain, Echo, kidnapped Henderson as he was accepting his award. Cries could be heard all over the conference hall: “Oh no! It’s Echo-o-o-o,” “What are we going to do?” “Where is IP Man when you need him?” “What will happen to our beloved Sherm?”
The terror was palpable as the onlookers fell silent – what’s that in the air? A bird? A plane? No! It’s IP Man! Sherm actually might make it to COMPTEL alive!
