Expands Support to Meet Demand for More Dedicated Expertise
Petaluma, CA (April 9, 2019) – Intelisys, Inc., a ScanSource company, and the nation’s leading provider of technology services, has reinforced its commitment to Sales Partners with the hiring of three key new sales and solutions engineering personnel:
- Alix Moore, Channel Manager, Southeast Region

- Ivan Paynter, National Security Specialist
These new, strategic additions were chosen to help move the needle for Intelisys Sales Partners, supporting the partner community’s accelerated growth and empowering the delivery of the best possible solutions to end-user customers.
Alix Moore, Channel Manager, Southeast Region, is now supporting Sales Partners in Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Tennessee. Based out of Nashville, TN, she will report to Karla Roarty, Director of Partner Sales, Southeast Region. Moore has held multiple key leadership roles as Strategic Account Manager at Advent, and as Director Business Development as well as IT and Communications Consultant at Blue Equinox, a leading technology consulting and professional services group.
“We are dedicated to enhancing support for our partner community, as they pivot to the new customer experience battleground. Alix answers a key need for us, as we continue to undergo unprecedented East Region growth,” said Jay Bradley, President of Intelisys, a ScanSource company. “Her business development and leadership skills, sales acumen, and strategic sales support will be an incredible resource for our partners. Alix is a great asset to the team.”
Patrick Chen has been brought on as a Solutions Engineer for the Central Region. Based out of the Dallas, Texas area, he most recently held a senior leadership position with Aryaka Networks as Senior Solutions Engineer. Previous to his tenure with Arayaka, Chen served as a Sales Engineer for RapidScale. He will report to Gerry Davis, Intelisys’ Director of Solutions Engineering.
“Patrick is highly sought-after, well-known and well-respected in the industry. He has built a strong, trusted brand reputation and brings an incredible wealth of knowledge and skills to his role,” noted Jay Bradley. “As part of the Intelisys team, his technical and sales engineering expertise will have a great impact in terms of growth for our partners.”
With the addition of Ivan Paynter as National Security Specialist, the company has doubled-down on its commitment to national, targeted expertise in key and critical growth areas such as CCaaS and Security. Paynter joins the organization as a strategic resource to support Intelisys Sales Partners in the rapidly growing Security-as-a-Service space. Both CCaaS and Security have been featured in Intelisys’ Super9 Intensive education program.
A Certified Information Systems Security Professional and industry veteran, Paynter is based out of the Dallas/Fort Worth area and will report to Raymond Nelson. Having most recently served as the Senior Cyber Security Solutions Engineer for Masergy, Paynter has also held multiple senior engineering roles with Verizon.
