Inc 5000 2020

HERMOSA BEACH, California — August 26, 2020 — Sandler Partners, one of the country’s fastest-growing private companies and a leading technology services master agent and distributor, announces its inclusion on the Inc. 5000 list for the 11th year in a row. Thanks to the best agents in the industry, supportive provider partners, and an incredibly talented and service-oriented employee team, Sandler Partners is so grateful and could not have done it without all their help.

“Our Channel Leaders are not just order takers— they are seasoned industry closers with technical experience who actively assist in the sales process to help our partners win deals,” said Justin Marano, Senior Vice President, East Region.

Speaking of technical experience, the Sandler Partners Sales Engineering support team has helped close almost 250% more deals that are over $25,000 in new MRC compared to last year. “When the engineering team gets involved, they expertly turn small opportunities into complex orders, touching many parts of the customer business,” emphasized Eric Beller, Senior Vice President of Sales and Solutions. “They provide excellent support and architect solutions to empower partners by giving them the technical expertise to meet the challenges of today.”

Ryan Yakos, Senior Vice President, Midwest Region, added, “Incredible Superstar Channel Managers and top engineering members are great, but we also have to give credit to the more than 200 cutting-edge providers in the Sandler Partners portfolio.”

“Our team is exceptionally dedicated and helps us deliver the absolute best for our customers,” said Paul Seeley, Senior Vice President. “Having providers is one thing, but to be able to sift through the Sandler Portal with a few clicks and instantly learn which carriers provide the top solutions is something our agents rave about. It’s a major reason why our new agent MRC is 50% above 2019, year to date.”

Caleb Tucker, Senior Vice President, affirmed, “Our Commissions team is the best in the industry at identifying and retrieving earned commissions before our partners even realize they’re missing. Sandler’s distinct practices, including its detailed auditing process and proactive recovery program, emphasize how committed we are to our partners.”

Since the company’s inception in 2003, Sandler Partners has continuously achieved incredible growth. While others have faced many unexpected challenges in 2020, the Sandler team has continued to advance. In fact, Sandler’s other partner deals closed are up 50% year over year.

Key differentiators that led to our inclusion on the Inc. 5000 list include a top-tier provider portfolio, some of the strongest agreements and protections in the field, and the industry’s sole commissions auditing and recovery program, which has recovered nearly $8 million for partners.
