About Me

Howdy y’all! My name is Gahn Lane, and I’m a sales and channel leader who’s all about collaboration and growth.

I’ve had the privilege of working with some of the biggest dogs in the biz, like Google, AWS, SK Telecom, and more. I’ve held leadership positions at Pindrop, PGi, Syniverse, CenturyLink, Westcon, and Nortel Networks. I’ve done all kinds of sales – from direct to channel, SaaS to Cloud, Terrestrial to Wireless, Software to Distribution, and Proservices. If it’s sales-related, I’ve got it in my bag!

But it ain’t just about sealing deals for me. I also love building and leading expert teams to accelerate business results and scale global strategies. I’ve managed and led teams of up to 800 professionals to plan and execute cutting-edge sales and channel strategies. These efforts generated highly profitable outcomes and uncharted levels of success.

My latest gig was as Vice President of Global Partners and Alliances at Pindrop. My team and I generated $52M in pipeline activity and closed $8M in business from scratch in less than a year. It’s safe to say, we knocked it outta the park

I’ve also served as Vice President for Global Strategic Alliances and Partners at PGi, where I gained expertise in partnership development and amassed a network of C-suite contacts from working on six continents throughout my career. While working for CenturyLink, I merged three business units into a single team, leading to revenue growth that exceeded $1B annually.

I got myself an MBA in International Business from the University of Dallas and a BS in Business Management and Marketing from the University of Texas at Dallas. I’m an advisor to Yagna, an early-stage tech company, and have consulted businesses including Frontier, CBTS, Ingram Micro, and Calvi throughout my career.

All in all, I’m a revenue-building machine who’s passionate about creating sustainable pipelines and optimizing brand exposure. I’ve won multiple awards and even made it onto CRN Magazine’s People of the Channel: “100 People You Don’t Know but Should” Recognition.

When I’m not leading the charge in the sales world, I’m kicking back with my family, rooting for the Longhorns, and cooking up the next big thing in global growth. Y’all come back now, ya hear?
