Tim Brien of OKI Data Americas Named to Everything Channel’s List of 100 People You Don’t Know but Should
Mt. Laurel, NJ - July 13, 2011 – OKI Data Americas, which markets its products under the OKI brand, today announced that Tim Brien, Director of Managed Print Services (MPS), has been recognized by Everything Channel as a part of CRN’s 2011 “100 People You Don’t Know But Should” list. This list recognizes individual professionals within a vendor organization who are responsible for driving the behind the scenes efforts in channel marketing, operations and sales.
The “100 People You Don’t Know But Should” are the Directors, Vice Presidents and Officers who lead their channel program without fanfare, exhibiting the strength, determination and creativity required to support solution providers on a daily basis.
“Tim Brien’s work in Managed Print Services has helped evolve OKI’s comprehensive MPS program, Total Managed Print™ to be a flexible and modular approach that increases benefits to the channel. Partners now have a competitive edge with customized options to succeed at any level of their MPS engagement,” said Scott Becker, Executive Vice President, North America Sales and Marketing at OKI Data Americas. “Tim’s experience and work in the print and imaging industry are evident in his work and we are happy to see him be acknowledged by Everything Channel as an influential leader within the industry.”
“I’m pleased to announce our first annual list of “100 People You Don’t Know But Should” by honoring the unsung leaders in the IT channel,” said Kelley Damore, Vice President, Editorial Director, Everything Channel. This list recognizes the behind-the-scenes influencers within a vendor organization who are making a significant impact on the company’s channel program, and the channel as a whole, by working in any capacity necessary to drive profit and success. While solution providers may already be aware of a vendor’s Channel Chief, many are still unaware of the individuals behind the chiefs; the home office shot callers responsible for delivering a successful channel program. Many of these individuals lead the way without recognition, and yet they have made a significant impact in driving the success of their channel program. I’m pleased to bring attention to their contributions.”
A sample of the list will be published in print and online at CRN.com on June 20, 2011.
