INTELISYS CHANNEL CONNECT — Intelisys, the master agent and tech services distributor, recognized six sales partners for reaching platinum status in 2017 at the close of its Channel Connect event in Monterey, California.
Three – Schafer Management, ROI Communications and PeakView Communications – previously were unannounced platinum achievers. LAM Technology, BroadReach Communications and Agnostic Networks also were recognized for the achievement of reaching $1 million in monthly billings. It brings Intelisys’ total number of platinum partners to 15. In addition, RDS Solutions and D&M Enterprise Group were honored for reaching platinum-plus status.
“As Intelisys reaches new growth milestones and morphs into a truly next-generation company, Channel Connect remains a steadfast occasion for our incredible partner community to gather, connect, share, learn and celebrate with each other,” said Jay Bradley, Intelisys president. “It’s an honor to see so many faces, to shake the hands of partners we’ve been working with for sometimes two decades or more. And for our newer partners – both on the sales and supplier sides – Channel Connect provides an unmistakable glimpse into what makes this community special …”
It was the first time Intelisys hosted the even in Monterey after several years in Napa, California.
New at Channel Connect this year were a series of supplier awards that recognized both financial achievements and relationships. Intelisys sales partners, an internal sales team and support teams voted for regional channel managers from among Intelisys’ supplier-partner portfolio.

Karla Roarty, Intelisys’ director of partner sales for the Southeast, took home the honor for her “tireless efforts at improvement and exceeding excellence since joining the company in 2009.” It also honored the special relationship that she and Mache shared, Intelisys said.
