Vice President - NA Channel Alliances, Rackspace
Lisa McLin is a true servant leader who strives to elevate others. Her high-performing sales teams operate with a customer-first mentality that in turn delivers the most consistent results at Rackspace. Lisa believes that celebration and passion unify teams and sees her leadership role as an opportunity to give back to others and to greater Rackspace.
Lisa began her journey at Rackspace in 2002 and held leadership roles in Accounting, Customer Business Consulting and Sales. In 2013, she spearheaded a yearlong Sales Organization Transformation project in conjunction with a third-party consultancy. This effort, commissioned by Rackspace’s Chief Revenue Officer, organized sales resources against the rapidly growing Rackspace portfolio and mitigated complexity in the sales process for customers of all sizes: SMB, MM and Enterprise.
Lisa went on to lead Rackspace’s largest customers sales segment: SMB and Mid-Market. There she scaled her deep expertise in strategic sales, service delivery, and business management across her organization and drove wildly successful customer outcomes.
Today, Lisa is thrilled to take on her next challenge as leader of Rackspace Partner Sales. She understands the value of strategic Alliance relationships and knows that only through true partnership, can Rackspace serve the next generation of IT and grow to its full potential. By doing what is right for the customer, her people and partners, Lisa will continue her contribution to Rackspace’s future.
