International Women’s Day 2023: Here’s How 10 Influential Channel Chiefs Describe Their Channel Philosophy

CRN Staff

In celebration of International Women’s Day, here are 10 women from CRN’s 2023 Most Influential Channel Chiefs describing their personal channel philosophy.

Red Hat 

Stefanie Chiras 

SVP, Partner Ecosystem Success 

For me, the ecosystem is a community of innovators, much like the open-source communities Red Hat is deeply engaged in. The end goal of the community, as a collective, is to drive new capability and deliver value to customers. The end goal of each member is to maximize their impact to that goal and to thrive. This is not about Red Hat being at the center. Our partners and customers, alongside us, are the essence of the ecosystem. Success depends on multiple partners working together to meet the unique needs of customers by co-creating together and by closing deals.

Verizon Business 

Wendy Taccetta 

Channel Chief 

I believe that in order to deliver a great customer experience we must have a great partner experience and to do this well, we must be easy to do business with. Through strong and diverse partnerships, I am committed to accelerating small-business growth, driving transformation across the ecosystem and fostering a culture of collaboration every day.
