Years in position: 4
Highlights of the past year: Ranganathan's Global Channel Marketing Team had a great year creating and executing global campaigns that enabled channel partners to grow, thrive and meet Dell's collective business goals. These impactful campaigns were leveraged in North America, EMEA and APJ. She also envisioned and implemented industry recognized social media strategies that help communicate and enable the channel partners to sell and amplify their successes.
