Round Four: Janet Schijns, Verizon, defeats Gavriella Schuster, Microsoft
On the other side of the bracket, Janet Schijns (pictured right), also making her tournament debut, crushed Gavriella Schuster for a trip to the final. Verizon's VP of sales channels posted an impressive 74 percent to 26 percent win over Microsoft's Schuster.
Verizon's Channel Madness tournament lineage is well documented - Adam Famularo made it to the championship round in the inaugural tournament in 2015. Schijns took the Verizon channel reigns from Famularo last spring and she'll look to do what her predecessor couldn't -- get it done in the final.
Schijns has forged an impressive path on her way to a shot at the title. She posted the second largest margin of victory in Round 1, the highest vote totals in Rounds 2 and 3, and put the cherry on top with the Field of Four drubbing of Schuster.
For those scoring at home, that's chiefs from LogicMonitor, VMware, Intermedia and Microsoft all sent packing by Schijns. On to the final round.
