DALLAS, TX (PRWEB) April 14, 2015
Vorex, Inc., a leader in cloud-based professional services automation (PSA) and project management software for IT channel partners and small- to mid-size businesses (SMBs), today announced its Senior Vice President Stuart Selbst has been honored as one of the industry’s “Top 50 Channel Influencers” by Penton Technology Group and The VAR Guy. The global list identifies the top experts from all corners of the channel and celebrates their growing influence and continued contributions to the IT channel’s health and prosperity.
“Stu has built his career within the IT channel and knows the ins and outs of the industry and what matters most to MSPs and their end users,” said Mike Salem, CEO, Vorex. “It’s great to see The VAR Guy reflect on the IT channel’s most influential leaders and honor Stu for his efforts as an MSP, a business coach and most recently a channel vendor executive. Congratulations to all of this year’s top channel influencers.”
As Senior Vice President, Selbst works in conjunction with Vorex’s channel sales team and is responsible for overseeing the PSA vendor’s channel marketing efforts, as well as its partner programs and strategic alliances. In a matter of months, Vorex has established itself as a serious challenger and smarter alternative to legacy PSA players who were not born in the cloud and offer a platform that is really “too complex and too costly to justify channel partners keeping things business as usual,” said Selbst.
“The IT channel is the best sales team any vendor could ask for,” continued Selbst. “Our platform isn’t your standard PSA tool. It offers more, it does more, and it can be sold to and through the channel. I joined Vorex to bring positive change to the IT channel – especially for VARs and MSPs who are struggling to optimize their operations and service levels while keeping costs in check. I am thrilled at the opportunity ahead of us and appreciate The VAR Guy and Penton for recognizing my efforts and advocacy for the IT channel, as well as many of my friends and colleagues.”
“This is the first time The VAR Guy has recognized those men and women who have an impact on and effect change in the channel,” said Charlene O’Hanlon, Senior Executive Editor and Content Director of The VAR Guy. “We congratulate Vorex for making this year’s list, which truly exemplifies some of the best the channel has to offer.”
“This is an extraordinary time for the channel as solution providers and vendors alike adapt their growth strategies for the changing market,” said Marcia Parker, Executive Director, Penton Technology. “There’s a lot to learn from these industry leaders.”
