2020 Rising Female Stars

The inaugural 2020 CRN Rising Female Stars list honors the women who are winning praise from bosses, colleagues, peers and partners for their assiduous dedication to improving the way business gets done in the channel.

What became crystal clear after reading through the hundreds of nominations we received from executives across the industry is that the channel is chock-full of women who are adept doers. These are the dynamos, the heavy-lifters, the out-of-the box thinkers, the spark plugs. And they’re also the channel stewards, the empaths, the guardians, the glue.

We selected 100 of them. There are many more.
