Sandler Partners, one of America’s fastest growing private companies and a leading technology services distributors, has brought on a 20 year Channel veteran, Justin Marano, to lead and grow the company’s East Region as Senior Vice President, Channel.
HERMOSA BEACH, California — May 28, 2020 — Marano spent the first half of his career working at XO Communications as a Channel Manager supporting Partners in Metro NYC. During that time, he was XO’s Top Channel Manager for 7 consecutive years, and was recognized by Channel Partners readers as a Top 15 Channel Manager in 2009 and 2010.
For the second half of his career, Marano has been on the Master Agent side, with a focus on the Northeast. He was able to grow a virtually untapped region to be the largest and most productive for his previous employer. He was again recognized by Channel Partners readers as a Top 15 Channel Manager in 2011.
“Sandler Partners is almost a mirror image of my last opportunity. An amazing organization that has top notch leadership focused on driving the best Partner experience with almost no business coming out of the East coast. I am honored to be given this opportunity, and welcome the challenge," Marano says. "It’s truly exciting to bring the success that I have had in the past to Sandler Partners as I build a Team of Superstars to help grow the Sandler brand on the East coast. My singular focus has always been supporting sales Partners and putting them first in all that I do. I am and have always been committed to helping Partners build and grow their residual income through selling the services of the Suppliers in our portfolio addressing the technology needs of their end user customers.”
Marano will work closely with an incoming East Coast team and Alan Sandler, Managing Partner for Sandler Partners. Alan says, "We are excited to have Justin join the Sandler Team; he is a leader in the industry, and his reputation for supporting, taking care of, and championing his partners is already well known. Justin is such a great fit for the team, and we are grateful we have him on board to establish a presence for Sandler Partners on the East Coast.”
Marano's new team of Directors will support new partners in the Metro New York, New England, Mid-Atlantic, and Southeast regions starting in June.
