Unitrends Launches New Partner Program, Hires Former Mimecast Exec As Channel Chief
Backup and disaster recovery software developer Unitrends wins applause this week for building on its channel-first strategy by launching a new partner program and appointing Eli Kalil, a former Mimecast top channel executive, as the company's new channel chief.
Unitrends said three years ago that it would adopt a 100 percent channel model. With Kalil's appointment and the new partner program, Unitrends now plans to take its channel efforts to the next level by more closely aligning channel sales and marketing teams with the rest of the company's operations and driving more support for the channel through the entire organization.
Kalil holds the title of vice president of global channel sales at Unitrends. At Mimecast he was senior vice president of worldwide channel sales and operations.
