Ross Artale Honored on Inaugural Channel Futures Channel Leaders List


The List Recognizes the Most Future-Minded, Influential and Impactful Channel Leaders in Networking & Connectivity


NEPTUNE, NJ (November 1, 2022) Spectrotel, Inc., a next-generation aggregator and leading integrated technology solutions provider today announced Ross Artale, President and COO, is among the 20 honorees on the first Channel Futures Networking & Connectivity Channel Leaders list. The list recognizes these individuals as leaders who will determine the future of the channel as they redefine the partner-supplier relationship.

The networking and connectivity channel leaders were selected based on their companies’ market share, growth potential, strength of partner network, scope of partner program and the individual’s impact on the partner ecosystem.

Mr. Artale has over 28 years of experience in the telecommunications industry and has been integral in leading and implementing operational strategies aimed at improving the agent and customer experience. He has led the transformation of Spectrotel from a regional CLEC to a national leading edge next-generation aggregator and MSP, consistently growing the company's revenue year over year during his tenure. He is responsible for managing and leading all day-to-day operations including sales, product management, marketing, network operations, engineering, and IT. 

This list is the second of seven that will be unveiled one by one through the end of this year. The first list, recognizing channel leaders in security, was unveiled on Oct. 18. Subsequent lists will honor senior partner executives in EMEA, communications and collaboration (including UCaaS) managed services, distribution and cloud. The lists will be produced on an annual basis and expanded into other industry segments.

The channel leaders list, compiled by Channel Futures editors, are intended to provide the partner ecosystem with an in-depth look at each industry segment and spotlight those individuals responsible for the strategic direction of partner-facing organizations. As the nature of the channel changes, partners are developing deep ties with numerous suppliers in each technology solution segment they support. The channel leader’s lists will identify the executives with whom they should establish strong relationships going forward.  

“Channel Futures is once again demonstrating the incredible value it brings to its readers and the entire channel with by debuting the Channel Futures Leadership list. This list was compiled after months of tireless work by our media team to identify true leaders in the channel by industry category. It is critical for the partners who are focused on these markets to be able to understand who is making the investments and decisions in the channel that impact their future. We are proud to present these executives to the entire channel,” said Kelly Danziger, V.P., GM Informa Tech Channels.

“As the industry faces one of its most tumultuous periods, it is essential for channel partners to connect with the leaders of today’s strategic technology providers. These individuals are the ones who are guiding their organizations and partner ecosystems into the future with innovative thinking and industry-defining channel programs. Channel Futures has identified the individuals who are fueling a new wave of growth and solutions partners can bring to customers.” said Robert DeMarzo, VP, Content, Informa Tech Channels.
