The Channel Movers And Shakers
Every channel chief has influence, but there are a number of channel executives who are especially influential, either because the vendor they work for has a major channel presence, the channel organization has a lot of influence within the company, or the channel chief himself/herself carries great weight within the vendor executive ranks. Or some combination of all three.
Each year CRN puts together its list of the leading channel chiefs in the IT industry, about 270 this year. But this year, out of those 270, we've also identified the 50 channel chiefs we think are especially influential. Here they are, in alphabetical order by company.
