This is the third time DeLozier has received this honor -- he is a seasoned channel leader with more than 20 years of experience in business management, sales and channel development.
“I’m excited to once again be named to the Channel Partners Circle of Excellence,” said DeLozier. “My charter this year is to further develop and execute 8x8’s channel program as it continues to grow with a commitment to making it easier and faster for partners to do business with us. The recent launch of PartnerXchange, an online portal that enables our channel to effectively and efficiently manage their 8x8-related business and drive sales of 8x8 solutions, is just one example of our channel focus.”
Since 2014, the Channel Partners Circle of Excellence program has recognized channel leaders who inspire their partners to drive digital transformation for customers. The Circle of Excellence honors executives for their vision, innovation and advocacy of the indirect channel during a time of transition and convergence.
“Jeff Bezos famously said, ‘In business, what’s dangerous is to not evolve,’” said Lorna Garey, editor in chief of Channel Partners and Channel Futures. “The channel leaders we’re recognizing in this year’s Circle of Excellence are providing not just the tools, but the spark and inspiration that partners need to transform their own businesses so they can better serve customers. The entire editorial team extends congratulations and thanks for their service to our community.”
Channel Partners Circle of Excellence winners were honored during an awards ceremony on April 11 at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo in Las Vegas. These winners will be included on the Circle of Excellence Immersion Center on the Channel Partners website.
