Following 25 years of rewarding experiences in the spheres of enterprise sales and channel excellency, Olen Scott has been tapped to serve as Head of Channels at Nextiva, the future-of-work software company dedicated to all things business communication applications, intelligence, and automation.

Scott’s experience has previously seen him serving companies like Windstream, Purple, and Aryaka Networks. For Nextiva, Scott brings to the table a strengthened track record of delivering exceptional value to channel-centric revenue growth, making this chief title quite the apt fit.

According to Scott, he was drawn to Nextiva because of its ardent partner-and-customer-first focuses.

“There wasn’t a single conversation where partner and customer experiences weren’t stressed,” Scott said. “Usually, for sales leadership roles, people talk about sales and MRR, both of which matter. But at Nextiva, everybody puts massive emphasis on making sure that the partners love us. It’s a great culture, and for me, that sealed it. I’ve never worked anywhere that had this emphatic of a channel centricity and channel commitment. And of course, what channel chief doesn’t want that?”

Companies like Nextiva are tried-and-true proponents of pro-channel advocacy, especially when effectively being able to bring innovative cloud technologies to market. With Scott ready at the helm, Nextiva’s commitments to sales, services, marketing, and ever-increasing productivity are set to triumph over challenges within the channel ecosystem. With continued investment in and migration to cloud-based communications, the future is bring for Nextiva, which should benefit from Olen’s experience in the space.
