Endeavor, the leading provider of outsourced professional services for carriers, service providers, and VARs announced today that Justin R. McLain, CEO, has agreed to be a panelist in a session in the New Opportunities track at the 2012 Channel Partners Conference & Expo, the communications industry's only event exclusively for indirect sales focused on transforming their businesses to become the next-generation solutions providers. The Expo will take place March 26-29, 2012, at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
McLain will be participating as a panelist in the session entitled Using the Force! Increasing Your Value with Field Services at 10:30 am. on Wednesday, March 28. The session will enlighten channel partners about the opportunities available for VARs and agents to increase the value of the services they sell through outsourced field services such as onsite project management, demarc extensions, and equipment installation, de-installation, and configuration. Registration for the Conference & Expo Package is required for admission to this session. Please visit channelpartnersconference.com for registration details.
As Endeavor's CEO, Justin R. McLain is responsible for overseeing company operations, as well as developing new services and strategic relationships and managing Endeavor's relationships with its largest customers. McLain has been at the helm of Endeavor since its divestiture in 2002. Prior to that, he held positions at HealthSource, Shin-Etsu Polymer Corp, and SSI. McLain earned a bachelor's degree in business administration and a bachelor's degree in biology from the College of Charleston, where he serves on the Board of Governors and regularly lectures on entrepreneurship, leadership, and business development strategies. He also is a member of the 2011-2012 Channel Partners Advisory Board and holds seats on the boards for several private companies.
“The topic I was asked to speak about is certainly a spot-on for Endeavor and particularly important in the current market,” said McLain. “With increasing competition and more stringent budgetary restrictions, the benefits of cost-savings and increased operational efficiency are obvious when adopting an outsourced field service. What is often overlooked is how field service can be an added profit center for a service provider or channel partner by directly increasing RPU and developing cross-sell opportunities. I look forward to sharing my knowledge at Channel Partners in not only how to use field service to cut costs but also bolster revenue.”
As a long-time exhibitor and supporter of the channel industry, Endeavor staff will be available at booth #427 on the Expo floor of the Conference. More than 3,000 participants are expected to attend the three-day education and networking event, and the exhibit hall will feature more than 140 exhibitors.
