August 06, 2010

Mitel® (NASDAQ: MITL), a leading provider of unified communications software solutions, today announced that Judy Byers, South Central Regional General Manager, has been recognized by Everything Channel's CRN Magazine as one of the top Women of the Channel. CRN's annual list recognizes female executives across vendors' channel organizations, distributors and solution providers for their accomplishments over the past year and the far-reaching impact they are having on the technology industry going forward. This year's Women of the Channel were chosen by the editors of CRN Magazine based on their achievements as executives and the amount of influence they wield over the technology channel.

As Regional General Manager for Mitel, Byers leads a team of trained and certified sales professionals. This past year Byers leveraged her success in the Dallas market and extended Mitel's presence throughout Texas, specifically in Houston, Austin, and San Antonio. Not only does she act as a trusted communications advisor to her clients, she and her team collaborate with Mitel's indirect channels to deliver tailored communications solutions for customers and provide the support and services that make an initial communications investment pay long-term returns.

"Women hold many prominent executive positions at vendor organizations, distributors and solution provider organizations, providing critical insight and influence when it comes to technology and the channel. We want to honor and congratulate these women for their contributions to the industry and their respective organizations," said Kelley Damore, VP, editorial director, Everything Channel.

Byers is also active in the local community and business organizations. She is member of the Texas chapter of Women in Technology and is a founding member of the Women in Technology International Global Executive Network (Witi Gen).

Byers joined Mitel in 1991 and has more than 25 years experience in the telecommunications sector contributing to other areas of the company including operations, engineering, sales, and sales leadership.

"Judy's determination, knowledge, and the relationships she forms with customers, channel, and the community make her very deserving of this award," says Rick Dell, president, US, Mitel. "These attributes have made her instrumental in Mitel's extended presence in the state of Texas which has helped strengthen Mitel's position and brand in the region."

A special feature of the Women of the Channel is in the July issue of CRN Magazine and expanded coverage will be featured online at
