Partner programs

Partners, channels and alliances are essential elements of successful technology marketing.

Technology companies have turned to Davis again and again to drive key initiatives with strategic partners, and to help them more effectively communicate with channel partners.

He has extensive strategic alliance and channel partner experience serving companies like HP, Microsoft, Symantec, Sun, Finisar, Exodus Communications and Amazon Consulting. Many partner engagements for these companies have shown him how to find common ground, establish trust and get results even when the partners companies’ goals are not completely aligned.
