D-Link President Nick Tidd Named Top Channel Chief by Computer Reseller News

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CA--(Marketwire - March 1, 2010) -  Nick Tidd, president of D-Link North America, the end-to-end networking solutions provider for business and consumers, has been named one of the top "Channel Chiefs" in the U.S. by Computer Reseller News, a leading media outlet serving the information technology (IT) sales community.

According to the publication's editors who judge the annual competition, "networking channel chiefs have to be a lot of things to a lot of different people: a unified communications savant, a convergence whiz, a data center evangelist, a switching and routing specialist, a cloud sage, and the list goes on."

"While I am honored to be in the same company with other outstanding channel leaders, I am especially proud of the D-Link team and the thousands of channel partners who are focused on achieving mutual success by expanding revenue potential," Tidd said. "I'm excited about driving the company to reach its full potential as we increasingly attract more brand-agnostic, value-conscious customers."

After joining D-Link in 2008 as general manager of Canada's business solution sales, he was promoted in May 2009 to the dual roles of vice president of sales for D-Link Pan America and vice president of marketing for D-Link North America. 

Since then, he has focused on making operations more efficient and on selling customer-centric solutions, while fostering a sense of empowerment and accountability among employees. Those efforts were rewarded in January 2010 when he was promoted to his current position as president of D-Link North America.

Prior to joining D-Link, Tidd was vice president of worldwide channel sales for 3Com Corporation, where he was responsible for managing 3Com's go-to-market channel sales strategy supporting 107,000 global resellers. His other senior strategic management positions were with Save Rite Technologies (SRT), Antares Electronics and asap Computer Products.
