Polycom announced Mark Arman as its new vice president of worldwide channel sales at the beginning of the month. Arman is a former ShoreTel channel executive and replaces former Polycom global channel chief Mike Conlon. In his new role, Arman oversees Polycom's global channel strategy and partner program. Partners responded positively to the news and Arman's channel record.
Polycom has been no stranger to executive shifts in recent months, with the May promotion of Laura Durr to CFO and the December appointment of former Motorola executive Peter A. Leav as CEO, replacing Andy Miller.
