Austin, TX -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/01/2016 --OnRamp Access, LLC, a high security and hybrid hosting provider with data center locations in Austin, TX and Raleigh, NC, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Senior Director of OnRamp's Channel Partner Program, Drew Jenkins, to its prestigious list of 2016 Channel Chiefs. The executives on this annual list represent top leaders in the IT channel who excel at driving growth and revenue in their organizations through channel partners.
Channel Chief honorees are selected by CRN's editorial staff on the basis of their professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the channel partner community and strategies for driving future growth and innovation. Each of the 2016 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated loyalty and ongoing support for the IT channel by consistently promoting, defending and executing outstanding channel partner programs.
Jenkins, who joined OnRamp in December of 2014, has made major strides in growing the company's channel partner base and increasing its profitability by following one simple philosophy he summed up in his own words – "By making it easy for partners to do business with us." Since taking his position, Jenkins has made several notable changes which harken back to this theme. They include: creating an automated sign up process, adding a dedicated team member for partner on-boarding and enablement, and enhancing the partner portal to include features like a partner showcase which highlights active partners and the services they provide.
As a result of Jenkins's leadership, he and his team are able to provide individualized attention to partners, helping them not only to win deals, but to find new business opportunities within OnRamp's customer base, or through its vast network of partners. This is reflected in the fact that over the course of the past year the average revenue per partner more than doubled.
"I am incredibly honored to be named a Channel Chief by CRN this year," stated Jenkins. "But I, can't take full credit for this achievement. For starters, this speaks to the quality of our partner community. Furthermore, I believe this is a testament to the strength of our Channel Sales Team, their commitment to enabling our partners, and OnRamp's approach to rewarding partners that are actively working with us to drive new business." Jenkins went on to add, "I am extremely excited for what it's in store through the remainder of 2016. With a seemingly endless supply of tradeshows and sponsored networking events, we hope to expand our reach into the MSP and VAR communities to allow new businesses to capitalize on OnRamp's success of delivering secure and compliant hybrid hosting offerings to address today's most pertinent business needs."
