IRVINE, CA, February 8, 2020 – Getac and CRN jointly congratulate Keri Bolding, Getac Director of Channel Sales for North America, on being named to the annual CRN Channel Chiefs list, the industry’s definitive honor roll of channel management executives.
“Keri and her teams have been meeting and exceeding the goals set down for them since she joined us as Federal Channel Manager in 2017,” Getac President Mike McMahon said. “As Channel Team Manager she recruited and onboarded more than 100 new channel partners and played vital roles in developing and managing our first partner conference in 2019 and launching the ‘Rugged Revolution’ outreach program in collaboration with our partner HP later the same year.
“Keri was instrumental in strategizing the official partner program we launched in January 2020,” McMahon continued, “and now, as our chief executive for U.S. and Canadian channel sales, she is uniquely qualified to take that program and drive it to ever-higher levels.”
The CRN Channel Chiefs list identifies the channel executives who consistently manage and execute effective channel partner programs and strategies. Those making the list are chosen by CRN editors based on their track record of channel accomplishments, standing in the industry, dedication to the partner community and plans for driving future business innovation and channel growth.
“As managers of the juncture between IT vendors and their channel partners, channel chiefs have a tough job,” CRN noted in an editorial. “They are responsible for making sure that partners have access to a vendor’s product portfolio, have the necessary training to sell and support those products, and have access to sales and marketing resources–all while offering partners the right incentives and preventing channel conflicts. Inclusion on the prestigious Channel Chiefs list recognizes the commitment of the selected executives and their companies to current and prospective channel partners.”
