Maffei Leads Transition to Channel-Focused Sales Model and Makes it Easy for Partners to Drive Revenue Through SMB Data Protection
BOSTON, Feb. 23, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Carbonite, Inc. (Nasdaq:CARB), a leading provider of cloud and hybrid business continuity solutions, announced today that Vice President of Global Channel Sales David Maffei has been named to the prestigious list of The Channel Company’s 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs. The list represents the most powerful leaders in the IT channel who drive growth and revenue for their organizations through their indirect channel partners. Maffei earned his place on the list after spearheading Carbonite’s transition to a channel-focused sales model, driving significant growth in indirect sales while enabling Carbonite partners to deliver powerful yet simple backup, recovery and archiving solutions for small to midsized businesses (SMBs).
By forging strategic alliances with leading global distributors and direct market resellers, as well as value-added resellers (VARs) and managed service providers (MSPs), Maffei increased Carbonite’s active partners by 36 percent to more than 5,800 in 2014. Carbonite also surpassed the milestone of 75,000 SMB customers in 2014, an achievement driven largely by its growing reach in the SMB IT channel.
The Carbonite global partner program provides channel partners with world-class resources and opportunities to serve their SMB clients and grow their businesses. Based on extensive channel feedback, the program offers sales and technical training, market development funds (MDF), product discounts, and more to help Carbonite partners increase profitability.
