Avaya named Walter Denkn as Worldwide Channel Leader. Denk will be responsible for creating and executing the company’s partner strategy, architecture and policy management of its Edge Partner program.
Additionally, Denk will lead revenue growth through the channel, which is comprised of more than 7,000 partners around the globe.
Denk moves into the new role from his previous position as vice president of Avaya Germany’s Small and Medium Business Group.
There, Denk successfully led initiatives that enhanced customer and partner satisfaction, sales coverage, productivity and alignment.
Prior to Avaya, Denk held positions in Sales and Marketing at a number of global technology companies, including Deutsche Telekom, IBM and PricewaterhouseCoopers.
Denk’s team will be enhanced with the promotion of Gary Levy to head U.S. Channel Sales. Levy’s appointment caps a 20 year career working with Avaya Channel Partners, during which he has established a number of programs to build tighter relationships between Avaya and partners that also contribute to their mutual success.
