lisa del real crn wotc 2016We’re thrilled that Lisa Del Real, our senior director of Channel Programs & Sales Ops, has been recognized as one of CRN’s 2016 Women of the Channel. A top news source for IT professionals, CRN editors selected Women of the Channel honorees on the basis of their professional accomplishments, demonstrated expertise and ongoing dedication to the IT channel.

Lisa Del Real has consistently shown great aptitude and dedication to building RingCentral’s Channel Program. Recognized by CRN for the third year in a row, Lisa Del Real has increased the number of channel partners, introduced new program elements to help partners be more successful, and added new distributors to the program. Having completed a record sales year in 2015, Lisa spearheaded the launch of the ISV Partner Program, for partners to build integrations with RingCentral and earn commissions, and the Signature Program, which assists partners in scaling their customers’ business to meet demand and needs. Keeping pace with developments to the RingCentral product, she added another global dimension to the program with the addition of Westcon to the distributor portfolio, along with Tech Data, Jenne and ScanSource, to enable scalable support for businesses of all sizes around the world. To further assist partners in providing a great customer experience, she also launched the RingCentral Certified Sales Professional (RCSP) Certification. Lisa has brought tremendous value to our partners and improved the way they’re able to interact with and support their customers.

We’re so proud to celebrate Lisa’s achievements, as RingCentral’s Channel Program wouldn’t be where it is today if it weren’t for her amazing work. Lisa has set a strong program foundation so our partners are best prepared to meet the increasing needs of enterprises. We applaud her diligent efforts and great commitment to helping our partners succeed.

The 2016 Women of the Channel List will be featured in the June issue of CRN Magazine and online.
