2021 Channel Chiefs: The 50 Most Influential

Rick Whiting

In celebration of CRN’s 2021 Channel Chiefs, here are 50 leaders who drive the channel agenda and evangelize the importance of channel partnerships.

Nvidia

Craig J. Weinstein

VP, Americas Partner Organization

Weinstein has led Nvidia’s “vision, strategy and execution” model that helps partners build practices around artificial intelligence and accelerated computing. He and his team created a partner enablement strategy that helps solution providers understand, engage with and take to market Nvidia’s AI and accelerated computing platform and software.

Those moves have helped partners develop AI consulting practices and capture new market opportunities by positioning them to help their customers across multiple industries transition to next-generation data center architectures.

While Nvidia partners have generally started out selling a specific Nvidia product or solution, Weinstein has overseen an evolution in the company’s partner base where solution providers are more often delivering complete AI infrastructure and software solutions utilizing Nvidia’s entire hardware and software portfolio.
