Effortless Appoints New Senior Vice President Channel Sales

Leading cloud and security solutions provider, Effortless, taps Chris Simmons to lead its expansion.

Effortless offers an enterprise-class, all-in-one cloud environment with solutions for Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS), Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS), Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), WiFi-as-a-Service (WFaaS), Security-as-a-Service, Office 365, email, network management and professional services. Today, the company is appointing a new Senior Vice President of Channel Sales, Chris Simmons. In this new role, Simmons will spearhead and advance an ongoing expansion by further developing key master agency partnerships, business development, and scaling the Effortless Channel Partner program nationally.

As a National Channel Manager, Simmons has managed and helped lead channel sales for notable companies, such as Level 3 Communications, Rackspace, tw telecom, and TelePacific (now TPx Communications). A 20-year veteran of the industry, Simmons' knowledge, and experience make him a highly sought after asset for Effortless to pick up to aid in their expansion.

"With Chris' experience and proven track record of delivering results, he will provide key contributions in ushering Effortless through this expansion. It was a natural decision to appoint Chris Senior Vice President Channel Sales, and bestow our trust in his ability to build a strong and effective team," said Benjamin Gayheart, founder and CEO of Effortless.

This is not the first instance of Simmons working under Gayheart. In the early 2000s, the two men built Ascent, one of the most successful managed IT service providers in Las Vegas.

"I'm genuinely excited to be a part of a company growing as fast as it is and the opportunity to be working with the highest caliber of professionals in the industry. Ben is a brilliant engineer and I'm really honored to have the chance to come into this organization to work with him again," Simmons said of his new appointment.

In response to the increased sales volume, Effortless is also adding several new channel managers and national channel managers to service the additional accounts.
