Channel Dynamics is thrilled to announce Ryan Parker is now a permanent part of the team. Ryan has been working with the Channel Dynamics team in a part time capacity for the last 6 years, but has now come onboard as a Director in the company. His focus will be helping vendors develop channel strategy and enhancing their partner programs.
Ryan is best known for his role as Managing Director for NETGEAR ANZ, but his experience in the industry spans over 20 years across all tiers of the channel – vendor, reseller, and distribution – making him a strong channel advocate. Having established NETGEAR’s Service provider business, and then growing NETGEAR’s SMB business in Switching, Storage, Wireless and Security, Ryan brings a unique set of skills to help our clients grow their business in two of the most sought-after sectors – MSP and mid-market.
Immediately prior to joining Channel Dynamics, Ryan was an equity partner in an ISV in the mobile workforce space, helping build the growth of their SaaS solution. He also spent time with Endace – a specialised enterprise security/application performance management platform – to develop its channel strategy. This strong sales, technical and operations background, means that Ryan is able to work with a wide range of vendors and solutions, and create channel strategies that deliver profitable business success for all.
Ryan has completed a BA Degree in Business Management and Marketing, and a Diploma in Strategic Account Management through the Australian Graduate School of Management. When not working on channel strategies for vendors, Ryan’s other interest is his partnership in a small craft distillery, Buffalo Vale, creating (and tasting) handcrafted spirits.
