An Open Letter to IntelisysNation: Organizational Announcement

IntelisysNation:

As you are probably aware, Mike Ketchum has retired from Intelisys after 15 years of loyal service to the organization. “Ketch” has been a staple in the indirect sales channel for a long time. We’re all so thankful for the many years he gave to Intelisys and ScanSource, as well as the mark he left on the channel and our sales partners. Following Mike’s retirement, I would like to share a few very exciting organizational shifts that will be taking place within the Intelisys ecosystem. 

Michael Sterl will be taking on the role of Senior Vice President of Partner Success, where he’ll be overseeing operations, partner compensation, and commissions. This will include oversight of our Club TPC program. Michael and his team will be laser-focused on the partner journey – how partners engage with us, how we engage with them, and what new tools we can offer to our sales partners to make sure they reach the highest pinnacles of success with Intelisys. Michael’s background and extensive experience within the telecom and cloud ecosystems, as well as his vision to help partners scale their recurring revenue practices, position him well for this opportunity.

With Michael’s shift to Partner Success, I’m also thrilled to announce a name you might recognize. Channel veteran, Chandler Legarreta, will now serve as our new Senior Vice President of Sales to lead the Intelisys Field and Inside Sales teams. Chandler brings more than 25 years of executive sales leadership experience to our team, specifically in enterprise data, network, and communication solutions. He joins us from 8×8, where he most recently served as Vice President of Sales. Prior to this, Chandler was CRO at Advantel Networks, where he led the sales, pre-sales engineering, marketing, business development, and product segments for the solutions provider. He also served as North American Vice President of Sales, SaaS Business Process Management, at K2 Software, Inc. (a Nintex company), and spent more than eight years with Arrow Systems as Vice President of Sales. His other leadership roles include Director of Strategic Development at Westcon-Comstor Americas (a Synnex company), and seven years with SourceOne, Inc. as Executive Vice President. I couldn’t be more excited about Chandler’s proven experience aligning sales forces and functions to perfectly mold with the goals of the company, and I know he’s looking forward to working with you.

In addition to Michael’s new position and welcoming Chandler to the team, I’m excited to introduce Bobby Wagner as Intelisys’ new Vice President of Finance. Bobby has been with ScanSource for 10 years, and has spent his career in the Financial Services and CRO organizations within the company. He previously served as Senior Director of Finance for ScanSource, and will now oversee all of Intelisys’ finance functions, including budgeting, planning, and forecasting. Paul Constantine will continue to oversee our Supplier Services organization. Jamaal Savwoir will remain Vice President, Partner Experience and Enablement, focusing on partner training and education.

I’m looking forward to another very productive year with this strong leadership team in place, and wish everyone a successful and prosperous 2022.

Sincerely,
John DeLozier
President, Intelisys
