SUNNYVALE, Calif. – Sept. 24, 2015 – ShoreTel® (NASDAQ: SHOR), the leading provider of brilliantly simple™ phone systems and unified communications solutions, announced today that CMO Mark Roberts has been named to The Channel Company’s Top Midmarket IT Vendor Executive list, which features the industry’s most influential vendor executives serving midmarket customers.
This year’s list includes more than 60 executives who have made a long-term commitment to and investment in the midmarket – organizations with 100 to 1,000 employees and/or $100 million to $1 billion in annual sales. The vendor executives on the list are strategic leaders in their organizations and have proven track records of meeting the needs of senior IT leaders of midsize organizations.
Roberts has been the ShoreTel chief marketing officer for almost two years, and has more than 20 years of technology marketing experience. Roberts leads marketing strategy, product marketing, demand generation, branding and external communications. Most recently he has been instrumental in transforming the marketing department and programs to align with the company’s transformation of its systems, support, and product portfolio.
“The executives named and the companies they represent are committed to serving the midmarket and are dedicated to creating programs and solutions that meet the unique needs of this market,” said Robert C. DeMarzo, senior vice president, event content & strategy, XChange Events. “Our Midsize Enterprise Summit brings together one of the largest gatherings of midmarket CIOs and is an ideal venue to honor these deserving leaders.”
Executives on the Top Midmarket IT Vendor Executive list were recognized at the Midsize Enterprise Summit (MES), held earlier this week in Los Angeles.
