OKI Data Americas today announced that Jackie Paralis, Senior Manager of Managed Print Services (MPS) Marketing, has been recognized by UBM Channel as a part of CRN’s 2012 “100 People You Don’t Know, But Should” list. This list recognizes individual professionals within a vendor organization who are responsible for driving the behind the scenes efforts in channel marketing, operations and sales.
The “100 People You Don’t Know But Should” are the Directors, Vice Presidents and Officers who lead their channel program without fanfare, exhibiting the strength, determination and creativity required to support solution providers on a daily basis.
“Jackie’s dedication and work in Managed Print Services has led to a significant expansion of OKI’s comprehensive MPS program – Total Managed Print™. She has worked diligently to provide the channel and partner communities with the resources necessary to give their businesses a unique and competitive edge,” said Scott Becker, Executive Vice President of North America Sales and Marketing for OKI Data Americas. “Jackie’s breadth of experience within the managed services market and her thorough understanding of the print and imaging industry are evident in her work, and we applaud UMB Channel for recognizing Jackie as an instrumental figure in the IT Channel.”
“I’m pleased to deliver our second annual list of “100 People You Don’t Know But Should” by continuing to honor the unsung leaders in the IT channel,” said Kelley Damore, Vice President, Editorial Director, UBM Channel. This list recognizes the behind-the-scenes influencers within a vendor organization who are making a significant impact on the company’s channel program, and the channel as a whole, by working in any capacity necessary to drive profit and success. While solution providers may already be aware of a vendor’s Channel Chief, many are still unaware of the individuals behind the chiefs; the home office shot callers responsible for delivering a successful channel program. Many of these individuals lead the way without recognition, and yet they have made a significant impact in driving the success of their channel program. I’m pleased to bring attention to their contributions.”
