New York, NY, May 19, 2016 – MetTel, a leading communications solutions provider for enterprise businesses, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Lori Thomas, vice president of Client Engagement, to its prestigious 2016 Women of the Channel list. The women executives who comprise this annual list span the IT channel, representing vendors, distributors, solution providers and other organizations that figure prominently in the channel ecosystem. Each is recognized for her outstanding leadership, vision, and unique role in driving channel growth and innovation.

In the past year alone, Lori has worked hard within MetTel to engage with channel partners, understand their initiatives and how MetTel’s vision, mission and value relates to its customers. In conjunction with MetTel’s Customer Engagement Group (CEG), Lori led and coordinated partner and customer events, technology review sessions and stewardship briefings to increase awareness. These events and sessions covered both current technology and performance data, as well as what’s next in the market, ensuring that customers have the most up-to-date information no matter where they are in their communications journey.

“Lori is a key part of our channel and partner strategy,” said Marshall Aronow, CEO, MetTel. “Her dedication to both the MetTel team and its customers ensure strong relationships and increased engagement, which ultimately bring stronger partnerships. From industry wide to vertical-specific case studies and statistics, Lori’s efforts and work on our Client Engagement team are critical to the overall success of our channel program.”

CRN editors select the Women of the Channel honorees on the basis of their professional accomplishments, demonstrated expertise and ongoing dedication to the IT channel.

“These executives have made a lasting mark on our industry—growing and elevating partner programs, leading transitions to new business models and introducing cutting-edge go-to-market strategies, among other remarkable achievements.” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “We congratulate all the 2016 Women of the Channel and celebrate their singular contributions to the advancement of the channel ecosystem.”

“It’s been an absolute honor to be selected for this recognition,” said Thomas. “Our mission as both a team and overall company is to create the best program so that our partners know that we are always doing our best work for them. My goal is to continue to solicit ongoing feedback from the channel on their business focuses, how we’re doing in supporting them, what’s working, what needs improvement and what technology and reporting enhancements we need to support our collective goals. In my mind, we should always be striving towards being the best partner possible.”
