CRN's fourth annual Channel Madness Tournament of Chiefs kicks off March 15, pitting some of the channel's best-known executives against each other in head-to-head battles where CRN readers vote to determine the victors.
While the tournament does not start until next week, the Field of 32 has been set, and readers have a chance to get into the action early by filling out and submitting their brackets today. Take a look at the field and play along at home.
Some of last year's favorites are back for another run, like Microsoft Corporate Vice President, Worldwide Channels & Programs Gavriella Schuster, who made it into the Semifinal round in 2017, but there are also some new faces in the contest, such as Dell EMC President of Global Channels, OEM and IoT Solutions Joyce Mullen, Juniper Corporate Vice President, Global Partners and Alliances Brian Rosenberg, Veeam Vice President, Americas Channel Sales Kevin Rooney and Cylance Vice President of Worldwide Channels and Alliances Didi Dayton.
So how well do you know the big-time players in the channel? Can one of the tournament veterans take the crown? Do you have some real-world experience working with an under-the-radar chief poised for a big run?
It's time to take your knowledge of the channel to the masses and get your perfect bracket out to the world. Results will be displayed on the 2018 Channel Madness Bracket Contest leader board, and the top three contestants will win a prize.
Join us at CRN.com/madness starting March 15 to cast your votes and choose your chief!
