ORLANDO - U.S. TelePacific Corp., a communications and network services company doing business as TelePacific Communications (TelePacific), today announced that Amir Hojjatnia, a TelePacific regional agent manager, has been selected as a Top 15 Channel Manager by Channel Partners magazine, the resource for the telecommunications indirect sales channel.
Hojjatnia has worked as a regional agent manager for TelePacific for eight years; he has been involved in the channel for 12 years. This marks the fourth time Hojjatnia has been voted a Channel Partners Top 15 Channel Manager since the award was established in 2007. He is one of just two industry channel managers to hold the distinction.
Hojjatnia attributes his multiple awards to being honest and accessible when working with channel partners and their business customers. He also credits TelePacific's channel partners and the company's culture and overall approach to the channel.
"I am very fortunate to work with so many talented channel partners and to be employed by an organization so committed to providing them with the products, tools and resources they need to drive growth and be successful," he says. "I feel like I've been part of something special for many years now. But I'm looking forward to working with our channel partners to reach even greater heights as TelePacific continues to invest in network infrastructure, develop innovative products and expand into new markets."
Each year, Channel Partners readers vote for their top 15 channel managers. For the 2012 contest, agents, VARs, dealers, interconnects, brokers and consultants in July nominated 71 candidates; then, in an online ballot available July 17-Aug. 23, more than 700 of those qualified channel partners chose the final 15.
All Top 15 Channel Manager recipients were honored during the general session of the Fall 2012 Channel Partners Conference & Expo in Orlando. For a full rundown of the results, click here.
