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.

Veeam

Kevin Rooney

VP, Americas Channel Sales

Rooney has been focused on ensuring that Veeam, which utilizes a 100 percent channel model, is providing the right incentives to help partners build their business with Veeam, encourages them to sell Veeam solutions over those of competitors, and attracts partners from competing providers.

In 2020 Veeam launched the Veeam Availability Suite v10 and Rooney’s priority was ensuring that partners had everything they needed to make the new product a success in the marketplace and gain market share from legacy data protection providers.
