PHOENIX, AZ — [May 4, 2023] — Channel Futures has selected Seanna Baumgartner, VP of Marketing at CallTower, as a winner of the 2023 Circle of Excellence Awards.
Since 2014, the Circle of Excellence program has recognized leaders in the communications and IT channel who inspire their partners to drive digital transformation for customers. These executives are honored for their vision, innovation and advocacy of the indirect channel during a time of transition and convergence.
Channel Futures Circle of Excellence winners will be honored during an awards ceremony on May 3 at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo in Las Vegas. These winners will be included on the Circle of Excellence Immersion Center on the Channel Futures website.
“The last decade has seen profound changes in the way the world — and by extension, the channel — does business,” said Kelly Danziger, general manager and vice president of channel at Informa Tech. “The last three years have presented unprecedented challenges, and the channel has been instrumental in keeping companies and their employees connected, collaborating and providing top-notch service to their customers.
“Much of the credit for that goes to leaders like the ones we are honoring in the Circle of Excellence. Their vision, strategy and inspiration were key in helping the channel navigate those challenges and emerge even stronger. The Channel Futures team extends congratulations and thanks for their service to our community.”
“CallTower’s success over the past decade can be attributed to our partnerships in the Channel with the vision and guidance from Seanna and her team,” said CallTower CRO William Rubio. “She continues to excel in our partner community and drive growth for our partners and CallTower.”
Seanna has been with CallTower for over 10 years. Since joining CallTower through an acquisition in 2016, she has played a critical role in CallTower’s global brand awareness to grow indirect and direct sales activity through strategic initiatives that are result-driven.
