Prestigious Award Demonstrates MetTel Channel Leadership and High Standard of Client Service
July 29, 2020, New York – MetTel, a digital transformation and communications leader, announced today that Tim Hanley, Vice President of Strategic Sales, has been named a Channel Partners “Top Gun 51” channel leader. Channel Partners and Channel Futures editors collaborated with distributors, master agents and industry analysts to compile the list.
A Top Gun 51 leader is defined as someone who possesses integrity, knowledge, confidence, the ability to inspire others, commitment and passion. In honoring Hanley, Channel Partners said that he’s one of the channel’s biggest advocates and has been “instrumental in making mobility and IoT a huge focus for partners – particularly during strenuous times such as the pandemic.”
“It’s an honor to be recognized among my peers as a Top Gun 51 Channel leader,” Hanley said. “I’m fortunate to be part of a great organization and work with the industry’s best channel partners. It’s been a privilege to share in our partners’ successes selling a variety of products such as SD-WAN and Mobility. The goal each day is to earn the trust of my partners, support them every way I can and provide award-winning solutions and service to clients, so everybody wins.”
To identify nominees for the Top Gun 51 list, select distributors, master agents and industry analysts each nominated 10 executives who they think excel in the following three areas:
- Advocates for the channel model with internal leadership.
- Is committed to partners’ business success.
- Works to earn trust.
Kris Blackmon, Senior Content Director for Channel Partners and Channel Futures, illustrated the high bar Top Gun 51 honorees must hurdle.
“Today’s channel leaders must be futurists, accountants, technologists, marketers and crisis managers,” Blackmon said. “It’s important to recognize these outstanding executives on the basis of insights from within the community itself. We want to thank everyone who helped us assemble this year’s list.”
Hanley, along with other Top Gun 51 winners, will be recognized in a special program during Channel Partners Virtual: Digital Events for the Modern Channel, as part of the three-day online Channel Partners Conference & Expo, from Sept. 8-10.
