COSTA MESA, CA, October 6, 2009 — MegaPath, Inc., the leading provider of managed IP data, voice, and security services in North America, announced today that Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Dan Foster was selected to the PHONE+ magazine and Channel Partners Conference & Expo joint 2009-2010 advisory board. Effective October 1, Mr. Foster will serve a one-year term with 17 other board members from the channel community.
Since joining MegaPath in 2000, Mr. Foster has been responsible for leading the sales and marketing efforts of the company. Most notably, he played a vital role in driving MegaPath’s growth as well as developing new strategies to invigorate the company’s Channel Partner program. MegaPath’s Channel Partner Program includes many of the industry’s leading VARs and integrators who are certified to offer the company’s leading connectivity, security and VoIP services. MegaPath ensures that its partners share a dedication to customer satisfaction, delivering not only the technology, but the services and support that customers require.
“Over the last year, we listened to our partners and worked to develop a channel program that provides value-added services and tools that ensure their success, and ultimately benefit their customers,” said Foster. “I’m looking forward to working alongside my peers to serve as a sounding board for editorial and seminar content for the magazine and conferences that will help to deliver information that is topical and relevant to the channel community. I’m truly honored to have been selected to serve on the PHONE+/Channel Partners Conference & Expo Advisory Board.”
The PHONE+/Channel Partners Conference & Expo Advisory Board is comprised of independent agents, subagents, master agents, VARs, dealers/interconnects, hardware/software vendors, resellers and carriers. In addition, there are four association members representing the Technology Channel Association, the Agent Alliance, TAG National and the Wireless Business Owners Consortium.
“Since it was formed in 2007, the PHONE+/Channel Partners Conference & Expo Advisory Board has proved to be a vital part of the success of the publication and the event. We rely on these industry insiders to help make sure our content is on target and that our programs are meaningful to the communications channel,” said Khali Henderson, group editor, PHONE+. “We welcome MegaPath’s Dan Foster to the Advisory Board, and thank him for volunteering both his time and expertise.”
Earlier this year, Mr. Foster was recognized by CRN as a 2009 Channel Chief for his innovative approach and commitment to providing partners with the services and tools needed to meet their overall business objectives. This annual award recognizes executives who consistently defend, promote and execute effective channel partner programs and strategies.
