Let's go, 2022! Five9 is excited to announce that two of our Five9 channel champions were recognized for their leadership, influence, and contributions to the partner community and their ability to lead and influence the partner channel community to elevated heights in 2022.  

We encourage our channel advocates to be a strong voice for our partners inside Five9 and the greater channel partner community. Jake Butterbaugh, Senior Vice President Global Partner Organization at Five9, and Kelli McMillan, Director Global Partners at Five9, recently received awards for their exceptional leadership in the channel partner topography. It fills us with great pride and joy to see Jake and Kelli recognized as outstanding channel leaders.  

Earlier this month, Jake was recognized as a Channel Chief by CRN for the third straight year. This award honors top channel executives worldwide, highlighting their accomplishments and dedication to the partner community. Jake's steadfast focus on building the Five9 global partner programs that deliver the best customer experience combined with the best agent experience is unmatched. Five9 is pleased to see Jake's extensive experience and hard work recognized. He is a leader in establishing and executing our ambitious vision for channel partners extending into 2022 and beyond.  

Today, Kelli was named a 2022 Channel Influencer by Channel Futures for the third year. This award was presented to her in recognition as a channel leader who will impact the direction of the information and communications (ICT) indirect sales channel in 2022. Five9 is proud of Kelli and appreciative of her thought leadership in building our global partner program and impact on the culture of the channel.  

"The Channel Futures Influencers is an exclusive group of executives who are at the pinnacle of leadership," said Bobby DeMarzo, vice president of content, Informa Tech Channels Group. "Our editorial team and key advisers carefully selected individuals based on their accomplishments and thought leadership in the partner ecosystem. These individuals stand head and shoulders above all others in the entire channel."  

Kelli and all the award winners in a gallery on the Channel Futures website and the 2022 Channel Influencers digital issue will be available for download on Friday, February 25. Channel Influencers winners will be honored at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo, April 11-14 at the Venetian Resort & Expo in Las Vegas.  

We are excited that our Five9 channel leaders contribute to the success of a broader channel partner community. Please join us in congratulating Jake, Kelli, and the Five9 Channel team on another successful year as leaders in the Five9 partner community!
