Meet the Chiefs: Wayne Newton, Belkin

This week in Meet the Chiefs we chatted with Wayne Newton, director of Belkin's American Business division. While he isn't a channel chief in the traditional sense, Newton manages all of the telecom solution provider's B2B businesses, including its government and education-focused verticals, indirect resellers, distributors and OEM partners for North and South America.

Prior to joining Belkin in 2013, Newton served as senior director of Sales for Cisco's Home Networking Business Unit, and has also worked at companies including D-Link, Imation and Digital River throughout his career.
