Meet the Chiefs: Mark Arman, Polycom

This week we sat down with Mark Arman, vice president of Worldwide Channel Sales at Polycom (PLCM) to learn more about the man behind the enterprise communication and collaboration vendor's channel initiatives. As channel chief, Arman works with the company's global ecosystem of channel partners to increase reseller loyalty and profitability as Polycom seeks to grow its channel initiatives.

Arman, who assumed the role of channel chief in June 2014, was formerly the executive in resident for L.E.K. Consulting a San Francisco, California-based strategy consulting firm. He also served in several executive-level positions at ShoreTel (SHOR), including vice president of International Sales and Worldwide Distribution, and as vice president of Business Development.
