International, Inc. announces that Jason Chester, Director of Global Channel Programs, has been officially named as one of CRN's 2021 "Channel Chiefs." The prestigious list is released annually to recognize the most prominent IT channel vendor executives who have continually demonstrated outstanding leadership, influence, innovation, and growth in their sector.
Jason is responsible for the implementation, management, and overall success of the InfinityQS Global Partner Program. Since the program was introduced in 2018, Jason has helped successfully launch three award-winning marketing campaigns aimed at educating, recruiting, and onboarding new channel partners and achieving global expansion. Part of Jason's role has been to ensure a wide variety of industry expertise across partner profiles—from small niche consultancies to multinational industrial IT services organizations. As a result of his efforts, InfinityQS has now formed strategic partnerships with more than 50 leading engineering, consultancy, and technology providers, building a global network that spans the Americas, Europe, Asia, the Indian subcontinent, and Oceania.
Most recently, Jason successfully led the InfinityQS channel team and partner relations through the volatility of COVID-19. Jason explained, "This past year has been full of many unexpected challenges for all of us. The pandemic instigated a massive spike in demand from manufacturers requesting the digital tools to work remotely, improve quality and performance, increase agility, and by extension, resilience. In response, we launched a free Proof-of-Concept cloud deployment framework that allowed partners to remotely setup, configure, and manage rapid, small-scale, focused implementations of our solution. This versatility meant our partners were able to transition almost exclusively to remote work - from initial sales engagement through remote deployment and training. The ability to work collaboratively, both internally and with our wider global partner network, is key to our ongoing success. Because of our close engagement and commitment to our partners, the InfinityQS Global Partner Program has doubled in size since last year."
Jason concluded, "It was an incredible honor to have been included as one of CRN's 2021 Channel Chiefs, alongside such a prestigious group of channel peers. Building an effective channel program is not about recruiting every partner—it's about recruiting the right partners. Being a Channel Chief means listening closely to your partners and building a tightly focused sales and recruitment strategy based around their needs. This has ensured the easy adoption and successful integration of our solutions, no matter where our customers are located in the world."
