PLEASANTON, Calif. – February 26, 2013– MegaPath Corporation, one of the leading providers of managed data, voice, security and hosted IT services in North America, today announced that its President of Business Markets, Dan Foster, was selected as one of CRN's 2013 Channel Chiefs. This list recognizes the most influential and powerful leaders in the IT channel directly responsible for driving channel sales and growth within their organization, while emphasizing the importance of the channel throughout the entire IT industry.
"MegaPath continuously strives to ensure partner success and this year we focused heavily on increasing the value we deliver to the channel and our end users," said Foster. "While enhancing our channel sales organization, we were able to maintain a channel neutral strategy and preserve the important relationships we established with our partners. This award from CRN is a testament to our consistent dedication within the channel."
In 2012, MegaPath introduced new tools into the channel program to help its partners successfully sell its services. Under Foster's direction, the company added enhanced order status tracking, self-bulk prequalification and customer support ticket tracking to better serve its partners. MegaPath also signed partnership agreements with Global Communications, Advoda, X4 and Telegration to broaden its distribution channel and provide service to organizations across the country regardless of their location and size.
