Channel veteran Francois Daumard brings a decade of experience from Apple and Microsoft.
Fiberlink has announced that channel veteran Francois Daumard has been named director of channel development.
Daumard will be responsible for scaling Fiberlink’s channel program and recruiting new partners for its MaaSters Partner Program, particularly in the SMB space.
Daumard comes to Fiberlink from Apple, where he was charged with building a channel of service providers capable of delivering integration solutions for iOS in business. That partner program was attractive and successful for channel partners of all sizes in the US and Canada. Before that, Daumard spent more than a decade at Microsoft, where he developed channel expertise in managing key distributors and partner programs.
Daumard was recently named one of Business Insider’s 2013 Top 50 Most Powerful People in Enterprise Tech and has a reputation for developing strong relationships with partners.
"Over the past year, our channel program has grown quickly and current partners are having great success," said Christopher Clark, president at Fiberlink. "Francois brings tremendous leadership, passion and proven channel partner expertise to foster new relationships which we are aggressively pursuing."
Fiberlink’s MaaSters Partner Program includes resellers, distributors, service providers and technology vendors. Fiberlink offers distinguished channel-friendly features such as deal registration, attractive margins, a dedicated partner portal, brandable marketing collateral, and quick-start technical and sales training. Through this program, partners can quickly and easily build a comprehensive mobility practice and go to market with the industry-leading cloud MDM offering with the support needed to be successful.
"In my conversations with channel partners across industries, I have heard time and again that MaaS360 is the best EMM product on the market," said Daumard. "I am excited to be part of the Fiberlink team and look forward to working directly with our channel partners to develop their mobility skill set, enabling them to provide value to their customers and advance their success."
Recently, Fiberlink was awarded a 5-Star Partner rating from CRN and named the 2013 Readers’ Choice Award for Best Mobile Device Management Vendor from ChannelPro.
