We understand the sheer size of the channel when we start to compile our “people on the move” at the end of every month.
Our May edition – featuring April announcements about people getting promoted and taking new jobs – includes regional channel managers, chief technical officers, master-agent sales representatives and more. Some have a day-to-day impact on the channel, while others make decisions that affect partners more in the long term.
People at Level 3, MegaPath and Telecom Brokers are among those highlighted here.
This list is by no means comprehensive, but it gives you a nice sampling of the new hires and promotions in April. You’re sure to see people you know.
