Jake Butterbaugh Honored on Inaugural Channel Futures Channel Leaders List
We are thrilled to share the news that Jake Butterbaugh, SVP Five9 Global Partner Sales at Five9, is among the 20 honorees on the first Channel Futures Channel Leaders list for communications and collaboration. The list recognizes these individuals as leaders who will determine the future of the channel as they redefine the partner-supplier relationship. The communications and collaboration channel leaders were selected based on their companies’ market share, growth potential, strength of partner network, scope of partner program and the individual’s impact on the partner ecosystem.
Five9 remains committed to delivering the best-in-class partner experience to align, amplify, and accelerate success with our Five9 global partner ecosystem. We recognize the importance of partnership and this year we made significant investments to provide several new high-impact elements of our Global Partner Program. These improvements include enhancements to The Five9 Global Partner Portal and launching new Program Guides, On-demand Partner Sales Certification, and enhanced partner certifications to improve our partner experience and build success globally.
Jake and his international partner team work hard to continue building and managing a growing Five9 Partner Ecosystem, opening new routes to market, and helping channel partners expand their practices to take the Customer Experience industry to new heights jointly. This year Five9 witnessed exceptional partner growth globally and throughout our expanding ISV and technology alliance partnerships.
The channel leaders list, compiled by Channel Futures editors, are intended to provide the partner ecosystem with an in-depth look at each industry segment and spotlight those individuals responsible for the strategic direction of partner-facing organizations. As the nature of the channel changes, partners are developing deep ties with numerous suppliers in each technology solution segment they support. The channel leaders lists will identify the executives with whom they should establish strong relationships going forward.
“I am very thankful to be recognized by Channel Futures and to be included in this list. It is truly a reflection of Five9’s collective recognition of the importance of wisely investing in our partner ecosystem. We are truly better together with our partners,” says Jake.
We are confident momentum will continue to build as we develop our growth plans with each of our partners beyond 2022 and into the future.
