SAN JOSE, Calif. – Feb. 21, 2017 – Intacct, the innovation and customer satisfaction leader in cloud ERP software, today announced that Taylor Macdonald, Intacct’s senior vice president of Channel Sales, has once again been named to CRN’s prestigious list of top Channel Chiefs for 2017.

The influential executives on this annual list represent the most powerful leaders in the IT channel who hold direct responsibility for driving growth and revenue for their organizations through their indirect channel partners. Macdonald was selected for inclusion based on his impressive track record of channel accomplishments, good standing in the industry, his dedication to the partner community, and plans for driving future business innovation and channel growth. 

Taylor has more than 25 years of experience building and operating some of the largest and most successful channel programs in the world for financial and ERP software providers. At Intacct, Macdonald is responsible for managing the Intacct Value Added Reseller (VAR) and CPA channel initiatives, and has built Intacct’s channel program into the envy of the industry.

Intacct’s program is designed to foster a network of Intacct partners that deliver comprehensive, high quality services, support, and software to help companies get maximum value from their Intacct investment. The Intacct channel program has attracted the cream of the crop, including 28 of the Top 100 CPA firms and 26 of the Top 100 VARs in the industry – the most of any cloud ERP vendor. Close to half of Intacct’s new business comes through channel partners.

“Taylor Macdonald is an enormous asset to Intacct partners and has made incredible strides for our organization,” said Robert Reid, CEO of Intacct. “Taylor’s team represents an extraordinary group of individuals who lead by example and serve as both invaluable advocates and innovators of the VAR channel. Taylor is committed to the success and growth of our partners, and has done an outstanding job developing the strongest channel program in the industry for the benefit of our customers.”

“The executives on our 2017 Channel Chiefs list have distinguished themselves by building strong partner programs, developing and executing effective business strategy and helping to advance the channel as a whole,” said Bob Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “They represent an extraordinary group of individuals who lead by example and serve as both invaluable advocates and innovators of the IT channel.
