“It’s always a great honor to be recognized on CRN’s Channel Chief list and this time is no different, said Schirman. “From a technology perspective, I’ve never been more excited for the opportunity our partners have than right now.

The 2023 Channel Chiefs have helped their solution provider partners and customers navigate an increasingly complex landscape of interconnected challenges and shifting industry dynamics. With the innovative strategies, programs, and partnerships of these Channel Chiefs in place, the solution provider community has continued to thrive.

“Vectra channel partners provide such immense value to our organization — anytime we receive recognition in the channel it really just speaks to the work they have done,” said Simmons. “We look forward to the journey ahead as we’ve really only started to scratch the surface on the opportunity our partners have to leverage Vectra as the best possible solution to solve customers’ most urgent cybersecurity risks.”  

The 2023 CRN Channel Chiefs were selected by the editorial staff based on their record of business innovation and dedication to the partner community. This year’s list represents the top IT executives responsible for building a robust channel ecosystem.
