Master agent and distributor Intelisys Communications has hired Chad Arnold as director of partner sales for the Northwest/Mountain Regions.
Arnold was previously the national channel sales manager at Level 3 Communications.
In his new role, Arnold will manage sales partners in Washington, Oregon and Northern California, and will indirectly manage sales partners in the Mountain region, including Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado and New Mexico. He will spend his time building relationships with and recruiting new telecom agents, VARs, MSPs and IT solution providers. Arnold will also support existing sales partners in the region to help them grow their businesses and achieve their goals.
“Intelisys sales partners are the highest performing, most demanding in the industry, so we take the hiring of our channel leaders very seriously,” said Mike McKenney, vice president of partner sales and business development. “I’ve admired Chad’s work ethic, integrity and his relentless pursuit of excellence for many years. He’s built from the same DNA as Intelisys, so he was a natural fit for this position. This is a huge win for our sales partners and I’m thrilled to welcome Chad to the Intelisys family.”
Based in Seattle, Arnold draws on more than 10 years of telecommunications and channel sales experience, including at Eschelon Telecom and tw telecom, now part of Level 3.
“I have experienced first hand what sets Intelisys apart from the others,” said Arnold. “One clear differentiator is the unrivaled investment Intelisys makes in its supplier partner relationships. Their supplier partners then reciprocate this investment 10-fold to the Intelisys sales partners with their best support, training and marketing resources… resources that others partners don’t have access to. When you combine Intelisys’ supplier relationships with their thought leadership, experience and history of unrivaled sales partner support, I’ve learned there is no better place for top performers to quickly and safely grow their businesses. That’s why I can’t wait to contribute to this community and help the industry’s top producers reach their goals.”
