Kadlacek leads the Enterprise Channel responsible for driving the growth of fiber-based solutions as well as the strategic development and recruitment of Master Agents nationally. During the pandemic, she had to get creative, launching creative client promotions to help businesses weather the uncertain times as well as a Managed Network Edge Partner incentive to provide additional support as partners pivoted to selling Spectrum Enterprise managed services through the pandemic. “While unable to travel during the pandemic, we took advantage of the time and put additional focus on enhancing our automated tools to better support our partners and clients,” she says. Kadlacek has led the Channel Partner Program for three years, and things have only gotten better with her at the helm. “She has excelled in transforming this sales channel to being one of the highest growth channels inside of Spectrum Enterprise. What has impressed me about Michelle is how she represents the Spectrum brand in the marketplace,” says Rob Roache, Group Vice President, Strategic Market & Partner Sales for Spectrum Enterprise, a part of Charter Communications. “She is very active and visible doing speaking engagements in the marketplace, telling the story of how the Spectrum Partner Program is serving the needs of partners and Enterprise clients across the US marketplace.” Kadlacek also does her part to support her Spectrum colleagues, serving as Co-Chair of the Spectrum Women Business Resource Group and leading the Spectrum Enterprise Women’s Leadership Development initiative. “My involvement has inspired me beyond measure to succeed and become the best possible version of myself,” she says.

“Michelle is someone who frequently mentors more junior team members, and I can see the difference in their approach and performance.” — Rob Roache
