The 2013 MSPmentor 250 list represents the world’s leading managed services experts, entrepreneurs and executives.

Bradbury and Merklinger are recognized by Nine Lives Media for their continued leadership and guidance, which led Intronis to achieve more than 40 percent year-over-year growth in 2012, and has positioned the company to exceed annual sales expectations in 2013 by double digits. Both executives are also credited with helping Intronis increase the average storage usage for its channel partners 540 percent during the last three years.

“Neal and Rob are committed to helping our channel partners grow their businesses and work hard to ensure that Intronis is providing the industry’s best-performing cloud-based backup and recovery solutions, enablement tools and sales support,” says Rick Faulk, CEO, Intronis. “Both are driven to succeed and motivated by the success of our partners, which is why it’s fantastic to see Neal and Rob’s leadership, market expertise and business success honored by MSPmentor and its readership.”

In addition to being named to the 2013 MSPmentor 250, Bradbury and Merklinger were also recognized by CRN earlier this year as industry-leading Channel Chiefs. Talkin’ Cloud ranked Intronis #46 on its 2013 Top 100, which identifies the IT channel’s top-performing cloud service providers based on metrics such as annual cloud services revenue growth, both in actual dollars and in percentage growth rates. Adding to its accomplishments in 2013, the cloud BDR leader recently issued its first “State of Cloud Backup” study.
