Intelisys has announced that Justin Marano will lead the company’s Northeast Region sales efforts as vice president of sales, Northeast Region.
Marano joined Intelisys in 2011 as senior manager of atrategic partner development, and has since delivered exceptional results on several key projects and programs. He was promoted to director, partner sales – Northeast Region, in December 2013. His successes as director of partner sales, combined with extensive industry knowledge and outstanding responsiveness to his partners’ unique needs, have positioned him as the ideal candidate to drive increased value for Intelisys’ sales partners and supplier partners.
“I am honored to be given this opportunity to support and enable the success of our partner community in the Northeast Region,” Marano stated. “Our partners are realizing incredible opportunities, and these opportunities will continue to grow as the IT and telecom industries converge. I am committed to providing the dedicated support and resources our Sales Partners rely on and trust, as they experience this remarkable growth.”
Marano brings a wealth of experience leading both regional and national programs, as well as a deep understanding of strategic channel enablement, to his new role with Intelisys. Prior to his tenure with Intelisys, Marano began his telecom career right out of college with Allegiance Telecom, which was later acquired by XO Communications. He served as channel manager for the New York market for XO Communications for eight years, and was named XO’s nationwide top performing channel manager for seven of those years.
“Since joining Intelisys, Justin has been the driving force behind numerous initiatives focused on growing and developing support and resources for one of the fastest-growing regions in the company,” said Rick Ribas, senior vice president, National Partner Sales. “His creativity, entrepreneurial spirit, and dedication to our Sales Partners’ success have been invaluable during this transformational time in the channel. Justin’s reputation as a leader, and his commitment to excellence, make him the perfect fit for this new role, and will empower our partner community as they continue to achieve phenomenal success.”
Intelisys’ Rick Ribas was recently named senior vice president, National Partner Sales, in part paving the way for Marano’s advancement. Ribas joined Intelisys in 2010 as vice president and was promoted to senior vice president, East Region, in 2015.
“These are extraordinary times in our industry as business models transform and channels converge, and our goal will continue to be to deliver new and better experiences to our partners, suppliers, customers, and end users,” said Jay Bradley, Intelisys president. “Justin’s singular focus has always been on supporting our Sales Partners, putting them first in all that he does. His ability to build and manage high growth sales teams and partners makes him an ideal fit for his new role. He will continue to be a leading support to our partners as they navigate new opportunities for growth.”
