TARRYTOWN, N.Y., Feb. 25, 2015 /CNW/ -- WestconGroup, the leading value-added global distributor of security, unified communications, network infrastructure and data center solutions, today announced one of its top executives has been singled out for excellence in the prestigious "2015 CRN Channel Chiefs" list. Building on similar recognition for more than five years running, WestconGroup Executive Vice President Bill Corbin was highlighted for achievements across both global sales and partner initiatives.
CRN's annual list reflects the most powerful leaders in the IT channel, each holding responsibility for driving growth and revenue for their organizations through indirect channel partners. Executives are selected based on a track-record of channel accomplishments, standing in the industry, dedication to the partner community, and for leading future business and channel growth.
As Executive Vice President of Global Sales and Partner Management, Bill Corbin is responsible for strategic direction and successful execution of WestconGroup's most critical partner relationships worldwide. He has been an integral component to the company's success – helping to deliver double-digit revenue increases across WestconGroup's global line card, integrating comprehensive business analytics to measure current and future benchmarks, and standardizing a Global Partner Management Platform to drive holistic visibility into every partner relationship worldwide.
"When I began putting together our world-class management team one year ago, I knew the global partnership leader should have a proven history of success – as well as the close relationships to build both current and new alliances for the future," said Dolph Westerbos, CEO, WestconGroup. "Bill is a visionary and recognized influencer in the channel. As an integral part of our success this past year, I'm thrilled he has been noticed for his accomplishments."
WestconGroup currently boasts more than $5 billion in global revenues, driven by a vendor portfolio across Cloud, Data Center, Networking, Security, Unified Communications and Collaboration, and Services. Corbin has helped the company achieve this milestone through leading several core focus areas: Investment and globalization in current partnerships, while engaging in new and emerging alliances; growth into new market segments, such as data center and cloud; and expansion of WestconGroup's global reach around the world.
"Each year, our editors carefully vet an extensive group of highly accomplished channel executives to highlight those exemplary individuals who earn the mantle of CRN Channel Chief. The 2015 Chiefs lead by example and serve as valuable advocates to help ensure the health and longevity of the IT channel. We applaud their accomplishments and look forward to their continued success," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Chanel Company.
