Former Trinity Network Solutions Channel Manager to Lead Northwest Region
Petaluma, CA (October 4, 2016) – Intelisys Inc., a ScanSource company and the nation’s leading Technology Services Distributor, has hired G.R. Heryford as Senior Manager, Strategic Partner Development, Northwest Region. Based out of the Seattle, WA, area, Heryford will support Intelisys Sales Partners in Washington and Oregon. He will report to J.R. Cook, SVP, West Region.
“We are experiencing explosive growth throughout the Northwest, and our Sales Partners are seeking dedicated, regional support,” said Cook. “With nearly 20 years of telecom experience in the Northwest market, G.R. brings a wealth of knowledge and meaningful relationships to Intelisys.”
Heryford, a 20-year telecom industry veteran, has spent the last seven years in channel management, most recently supporting VARs and agents as Channel Manager/Broker for Trinity Network Solutions. Previous to his tenure with Trinity Network Solutions, Heryford held channel management roles with Wave Broadband and Integra Telecom. Heryford was also founder of two telecom agencies, Xtend Networks and Data Link Communications, granting him a uniquely valuable perspective in an Intelisys channel manager role.
“On the carrier side, you only can offer what the carrier has to offer. The intrinsic feeling of satisfaction that results from helping partners find the right solutions was missing,” said Heryford. “Intelisys has a remarkable portfolio. I am excited to apply my knowledge both as a carrier rep and as an Intelisys Sales Partner to deliver the best possible solutions and support to my Sales Partners in the Northwest.”
Heryford was selected for, among other things, his substantial leadership skills, sales development and management acumen, a record of proven results, and a wide understanding of technology solutions.
“Intelisys is the best of the best, because its Sales Partners are the best of the best,” said Heryford. “I am passionate about supporting my Partners, not only with big sales opportunities, but with all aspects of growing their businesses. I will be there for my partners 24/7. They will always have an advocate in me.”
Heryford will be available for meetings at Channel Connect in Napa, CA, from October 12-14, 2016.
