Sophos today announced Amy Gelpey, channel relationship manager, has been recognized by UBM Channel as a part of CRN’s 2012 “100 People You Don’t Know, But Should” list. This list recognizes professionals within a vendor organization who are responsible for driving the behind the scenes efforts in channel marketing, operations and sales.
The “100 People You Don’t Know But Should” are the Directors, Vice Presidents and Officers who lead their channel programs without fanfare, exhibiting the strength, determination and creativity required to support solution providers on a daily basis.
“Amy plays an essential role in the success of the Sophos channel program and this award is a testament to her commitment to the Sophos channel and to the success of our partners,” said Matt Fogelgren, director North America Channel.
“I’m pleased to deliver our second annual list of “100 People You Don’t Know But Should” by continuing to honor the unsung leaders in the IT channel,” said Kelley Damore, Vice President, Editorial Director, UBM Channel. While solution providers may already be aware of a vendor’s channel chief, many are still unaware of the individuals behind the chiefs; the home office shot-callers responsible for delivering a successful channel program. Many of these individuals lead the way without recognition, and yet they have made a significant impact in driving the success of their channel program. I’m pleased to bring attention to their contributions.”
The Sophos program is designed to grow partners’ businesses and expand their expertise in all facets of IT security. Sophos reward partners for performance and commitment and the. company’s comprehensive portfolio of enablement tools, resources and marketing programs helps partners enter new markets and expand their businesses. Moreover, Sophos’ extensive product portfolio and high customer renewal rate make it easy for resellers to grow revenue year after year.
A sample of the list will be published in print and online at CRN.com on June 25, 2012.
