Bob Faletra

November’s issue of Executive Perspective features Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. Bob has more than 30 years of experience in the channel and has witnessed firsthand many of the shifts and developments that have transformed the industry. In the wide-ranging interview, Bob takes us on a historical tour of the channel, sharing some of his memories interacting with and reporting on the visionaries who shaped the technology industry. He addresses some of the differences between the initial tech giants and today’s leaders, and addresses how the concept of “the channel” has fundamentally evolved to be what it is today. Bob also looks at some of the major trends affecting channel companies, such as the declining prominence of IPOs and consolidation among large solution providers. He closes with a lesson for everyone – high tech is always changing and growing, and new opportunities from the Internet of Things to tech-enabled business models have the potential for transformative success.
