Building Spam Soap has been one of the most rewarding challenges of my life. I'm thankful to my colleagues, partners, and clients for recognizing the success of Spam Soap, along with everyone involved with making it what it is today.
Costa Mesa, CA (PRWEB) March 20, 2013
Over the past several months, hundreds of IT professionals from around the world have been engaged in the SMB 150 Channel Influencers contest. The SMB 150, which is a collaboration between SMB Nation and SMB Technology Network, is the SMB technology channel's annual list of its 150 most influential members.
On Friday, March 8, 2013, Leonard Dimiceli, General Manager, Spam Soap, was named to the SMB 150 Channel Influencers List. Dimiceli joins a group of esteemed colleagues who were chosen during a two-phase voting process. In the initial stage, channel community members voted on 450 nominees at SMB150.com. Following the community vote, a panel of industry experts consisting of Harry Brelsford, (SMB Nation); Karl Palachuk, (Great Little Book Publishing Co., Inc.); Josh Peterson, (MSP Score); Dave Seibert, (IT Innovators); and Dan Wensley, (Level Platforms), evaluated each nominee based on a pre-established rubric. The community vote accounted for 40% of each nominee's overall rating, with the expert panel's decision contributing the remaining 60%.
"Building Spam Soap has been one of the most rewarding challenges of my life," Dimiceli said. "I'm thankful to my colleagues, partners, and clients for recognizing the success of Spam Soap, along with everyone involved with making it what it is today."
“In 2012, Spam Soap grew in both adding additional products AND added more Channel Partners. We have and will continue to focus on bringing best in class, relevant and margin rich products to our Channel,” Dimiceli continued. “Last year, we introduced three NEW products that have really taken off in the Spam Soap Channel. The second accomplishment was the addition to the Spam Soap Channel. We attend, Sponsor or speak at 20+ events throughout the year. 100% of our efforts go to participating in Channel events in an effort to gain the confidence, trust and loyalty of the SMB Community.”
Dimiceli and his fellow SMB 150 influencers are invited to attend the SMB 150 Awards Gala on May 4, 2013, during SMB Nation’s Spring Conference at the Microsoft Conference Center in Redmond, WA. The event is hosted by SMB Nation and SMB Technology Network and sponsored by BlackBerry®. Each SMB 150 winner will receive a personalized award plaque, recognition in the SMB Nation magazine and other media outlets, and a new BlackBerry® Z10 device.
"I encourage everyone in the SMB channel community to join with me in recognizing and celebrating the winners of this year’s SMB 150," said Harry Brelsford, Founder and Chairman, SMB Nation. "Each individual whose name appears on this esteemed list has strived to ensure that our SMB community is one that will continue to thrive and succeed. I am beyond excited to toast them at the awards dinner on May 4 in Redmond."
