Bruce Wirt of Telesystem Recognized as 2021 CRN® Channel Chief
Philadelphia, PA, February 9, 2021 – Telesystem, a national provider of communication, collaboration, security and infrastructure solutions, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Telesystem Chief Business Development Officer Bruce Wirt to its 2021 list of Channel Chiefs. The prestigious CRN® Channel Chiefs list, released annually, recognizes leading IT channel vendor executives who continually demonstrate outstanding leadership, influence, innovation, and growth.
Bruce Wirt has been an executive in the telecommunications industry for nearly 15 years, and is currently the Executive Vice President and Chief Business Development Officer at Telesystem. He joined the Telesystem executive team in 2016 as Vice President of Channel Sales at a time when Telesystem was undertaking a regional to national evolution of the organization, and was promoted to his current role in 2018 as the chief executive of the front office. Bruce has led efforts to take two different organizations from regional to national both through comprehensive brand awareness initiatives and through the use of the channel. He has a decorated leadership career with an extensive coaching tree, and has a passion for public speaking and developing others. Recently Bruce started the Next Generation Leadership Podcast with Alliance of Channel Women and Channel Partners Advisory Board member Mayka Rosales Peterson; the podcast is available on most major podcasting platforms.
"Bruce has the rare combination of ‘iron will’ balanced with transparent communication and collaboration,” said Denton Parson, Executive Vice President and Chief Operations Officer at Telesystem. “Those skills have brought strength to our leadership team and have enabled growth of our people and brand."
The 2021 Channel Chiefs are prominent leaders who have influenced the IT channel with cutting-edge strategies, programs and partnerships. All honorees are selected by CRN’s editorial staff based on their dedication, industry prestige, and exceptional accomplishments as channel advocates.
“It’s an honor for me to receive this recognition for the first time,” said Wirt. “The last five years have been the most fun I’ve had in my 20+ year career. I am part of such a great team and great culture at Telesystem, and this recognition is as much a representation of the efforts of the collective as it is my own. Thank you to the panel at CRN for considering me.”
“CRN’s 2021 Channel Chiefs list includes the industry’s biggest channel evangelists, a group of individuals who work tirelessly on behalf of their partners and drive growth through the development of strong partner programs and innovative business strategies that help bring business-critical solutions to market,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The Channel Company is proud to recognize these channel influencers and looks forward to following their continued success.”
