Global alliances and channels VP Jeff Abbott is so good with Infor channel partners, he's been named one of UBM Tech Channel's Computer Reseller News (CRN) 2013 Channel Chiefs.
This prestigious list of influential leaders in the IT channel market recognizes executives directly responsible for driving channel sales and growth in their organization. Selected by CRN's editorial staff, the 2013 Channel Chiefs list is featured in the February issue of CRN Magazine and online at www.crn.com.
"We selected Jeff Abbott for his continued commitment to the partner community, which is clearly demonstrated by the growth and development of the Infor Partner Network," said Kelley Damore, senior vice president, editorial director, CRN.
The Infor Partner Network (IPN) is a global network designed to deliver the tools and resources to rapidly grow a profitable and sustainable business around Infor products. Established in 2011, the IPN consists of high-quality channel partners with extensive industry and product knowledge, and delivers partner-specific resources for training, sales enablement and market development, all designed to encourage greater partner achievement and reward.
"We formed 150 new reseller partnerships and increased channel revenue growth on a constant currency basis by 27 percent from fiscal 2011 to fiscal 2012, moving us closer to our goal of doubling channel revenue and attracting 400 new resellers over a three-year time period through the Infor Partner Network," Abbott said.
