“I’m pleased to deliver our second annual list of “100 People You Don’t Know But Should” by continuing to honor the unsung leaders in the IT channel,” said Kelley Damore, Vice President, Editorial Director, UBM Channel. This list recognizes the behind-the-scenes influencers within a vendor organization who are making a significant impact on the company’s channel program, and the channel as a whole, by working in any capacity necessary to drive profit and success. While solution providers may already be aware of a vendor’s Channel Chief, many are still unaware of the individuals behind the chiefs; the home office shot callers responsible for delivering a successful channel program. Many of these individuals lead the way without recognition, and yet they have made a significant impact in driving the success of their channel program. I’m pleased to bring attention to their contributions.”
“I am thrilled to be acknowledged by CRN as one of the top 100 industry influencers in the IT channel, said Rob Pollock, director of channel sales at Aerohive Networks. “We take pride in working closely with our channel partners to continue to provide best-in-class tools and resources needed to make businesses run efficiently, and it is an honor to be recognized for the work we are doing in the IT channel by this prestigious publication.”
