RYE BROOK, N.Y. — Broadview Networks®, a leader in cloud-based unified communications and information technology services, announced today that Donna Wenk, its Senior Vice President of Alternate Sales, has been named to list of 2016 Most Influential Channel Chiefs by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company. The executives on this exclusive annual list are drawn from the larger pool of Channel Chief honorees each year and represent the most influential of the industry’s top IT leaders. This distinguished group of managers is recognized for outstanding achievement in driving growth and revenue in their organizations, as well as extraordinary leadership and partnership in the channel as a whole.
All Channel Chief honorees are selected by CRN’s editorial staff based on their professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the channel partner community and strategies for driving future growth and innovation. Each has demonstrated loyalty and ongoing support for the channel by consistently promoting, defending and executing outstanding partner programs.
Since joining Broadview in 2013, Ms. Wenk has facilitated the growth of Broadview’s channel operations into new markets to become a truly nationwide cloud service provider. She is responsible for Broadview’s nationwide agent program and leads a 40-member team responsible for all channel sales, agent support and account management. Ms. Wenk’s innovative initiatives and proven leadership within the industry continue to be honored as she was named to both The Channel Company’s 2015 CRN Women of the Channel and the 2015 Power 100.
Under Ms. Wenk’s leadership, Broadview’s single most innovative partner initiative in 2015 was the development of an agent certification program that allows agents to install Broadview's hosted phone system, OfficeSuite®, at a customer’s premises. Certified agents can generate an additional revenue stream for installations and build further loyalty with their customer base by delivering a truly dedicated customer experience.
“We are honored to present the 2016 lineup of CRN Most Influential Channel Chiefs, comprised of outstanding executives who move our entire industry forward by cultivating exemplary partner programs and executing cutting-edge business strategy,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “They represent an extraordinary group of individuals who lead by example and serve as both invaluable advocates and innovators of the IT channel.
