Newark, DE (PRWEB) March 10, 2009
PHONE+ magazine, a monthly publication of Virgo Publishing LLC for the telecommunications indirect sales channel, is pleased to announce that Greg Plum has been selected as a finalist for Channel Executive of the Year. The 10 finalists were recently honored during an awards ceremony on March 1st wherein the winner was announced at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo, in Las Vegas. The finalists and winner will also be featured in the April issue of PHONE+.
Plum joined the Conference Group in 2000, at which time he embarked on the development of the company's channel strategy. Since that time, the Conference Group has expanded the program to include hundreds of agents and resellers in the US, Canada, and the UK. Plum lives in Delaware with his wife and 2 kids.
"PHONE+ is very excited to bestow the Channel Executive of the Year honor on one of these 10 exemplary finalists," said Mike Saxby, group publisher for PHONE+. "Hundreds of votes were received to determine the winner, and it was a close race."
To determine the Channel Executive of the Year, PHONE+ solicited nominations from channel partners. To be eligible, a nominee must have been the top person in the company's channel operations - at the executive level of vice president or higher - at a telecom vendor. Channel partners were then asked to vote for the Channel Executive of the Year based on the nominees' leadership, longevity, innovation and contribution to the indirect channel.
