EXCLUSIVE: ShoreTel appoints first in-house NZ Business Partner Manager

“New Zealand represents a significant part of the ShoreTel A/NZ business."

Unified Communications provider ShoreTel has increased its investment in the New Zealand marketplace with the appointment of Phil Morgan, the company’s first in-country Partner Business Manager.

Widely regarded within the Kiwi ICT market, Morgan joins ShoreTel following roles at Aastra, now a Mitel company, Whispir and 247 Distribution, in an experienced career which has also garnered positions at Zintel Communications, Ericsson and firstly, Telecom New Zealand, now known as Spark.

Tasked with ramping up the company’s presence across the country further, Morgan’s appointment helps reaffirm ShoreTel’s commitment to the Kiwi market following a strong year of growth during 2014.

“New Zealand represents a significant part of the ShoreTel A/NZ business, and Phil will bring increased support and focus to ShoreTel's growing network of partners by leveraging more than 30 years' local industry experience,” says Jamie Romanin, Managing Director, Australia and New Zealand.

“Phil has an in-depth knowledge of the local unified communications and contact centre sectors having worked in New Zealand throughout his career, most recently at Aastra (now part of Mitel) and before that as Country Manager for Whispir.”

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
