How MaryTom Hofer is Living the ACW Pledge: Women Supporting Women

Feb 24, 2023

Alliance of Channel Women is highlighting women who are Living the ACW Pledge: Women Supporting Women. We’re seeking nominations from the channel community for women – from the mailroom to the boardroom – who embody the oath in their words and actions.

MaryTom Hofer, Director of Operations at Kairos Data Communications, was nominated by Hans Schmid, President at Audible Business.

In what way(s) is your nominee an example of Living the ACW Advocacy Pledge of women supporting women?

MaryTom is passionate about caring for her customers and helping others do the same, regardless of gender.

What is a specific example of what she did for you and when it happened?

She made herself available to assist me as a fellow channel partner in learning how to manage UC after the sale. She’s a passionate advocate for the channel and other channel partners. She would do the same for anyone who asked for her help.

What impact did her action have on you and/or your career?

She has helped me better understand what suppliers offer in terms of installation services (vs. the marketing hype), how to measure success and hold suppliers accountable, and how to be involved with and manage the design, installation, and implementation process. Knowing I have an expert like MaryTom available to ask anything makes me more confident selling, implementing, and supporting UC sales and implementations.
