"I’m delighted to be recognised as a "Top Gun 51" Channel leader", DeRiggi said. "This award reaffirms our belief in the power of the Vonage Partner Network, and the importance of providing a consistently differentiated offering to our partners to help them meet the unique needs of their customers".
DeRiggi has more than 25 years of experience in building sales channels and programs for business cloud solutions from the ground up. His expertise has been instrumental in growing Vonage’s channel program - the Vonage Partner Network - as the Company continues to enhance the solutions, tools and support to help partners drive better business outcomes for their customers.
"Today’s channel leaders must be futurists, accountants, technologists, marketers and evangelists", says Lorna Garey, editor in chief of Channel Partners and Channel Futures. "We wanted to recognise these executives based on insights from within the community itself. I want to thank all of the master agents, distributors and analysts who helped us assemble a list that includes well-known names along with rising stars across a diverse range of companies".
