Chosen by the CRN editorial staff with input from vendor, distribution and solution provider executives, these unsung heroes have demonstrable impact on vendor channel strategies, initiatives and programs. Unlike anything else in the industry, this list aims to recognize people working within vendor channel organizations who are not necessarily in the spotlight, but are working behind the scenes to make positive things happen for their partners.
"The hardworking individuals that work behind the scenes to fuel the IT channel are among the most important assets today," said Robert Faletra, CEO of UBM Tech Channel. "This invaluable list of 100 individuals represents the most impressive and influential colleagues working among us and we are honored to highlight their success."
