West at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo: 4 Things to Know
1. Introducing Rob Bellmar, West’s new executive vice president of global channel sales and partner alliances
As we head into the largest channel networking event of the year, West is pleased to announce the appointment of Rob Bellmar to the role of executive vice president of global channel sales and partner alliances. This move expands West’s channel partner program from a regional offering to a worldwide initiative and enables West to play a more integral part in helping our partners drive digital transformation for their customers with global needs.
Rob joined the West executive team in 2007 and has held leadership roles within our operations, infrastructure, product and sales organizations. Throughout his tenure at West, Rob has driven quality and cost improvements, and implemented strategies to accelerate revenue growth and market reach. With over 20 years of experience working in cloud communications, Rob is dedicated to helping our channel partners navigate the shift to cloud-based UCaaS.
2. Schedule some time to meet with West, poolside at the Venetian
We’ve opted to give our partners a break from the biosphere again this year and will be holding meetings outside in the sunshine at the Venetian’s pool cabanas. If you have a few minutes unaccounted for and would like to have a meeting with West, contact your channel manager to coordinate a 1:1 meeting.
