DURHAM, North Carolina – June 3, 2020 – SolarWinds (NYSE:SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced five SolarWinds MSP executives have been recognized as 2020 Women of the Channel by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company. The honorees include Christina Bryant, senior account manager; Louise Butler, senior account manager; Laura Cairns, senior manager, customer success; Chanel Chambers, senior director, product marketing; and Tracy Trottier, global manager, customer marketing.
The annual Women of the Channel list spotlights channel leaders who are blazing a trail for future generations. Those named to the list are from all areas of the IT ecosystem, including technology vendors, distributors, solution providers, and other IT organizations.
“In the past year, all five of these outstanding SolarWinds MSP executives demonstrated exceptional channel leadership during a time of tremendous change. Through perseverance and dedication, they empowered our partners to continue to grow and thrive as world-class MSPs,” said John Pagliuca, president, SolarWinds MSP. “We’d like to thank CRN and The Channel Company for recognizing their outstanding contributions.”
To date in 2020, SolarWinds MSP has launched several new solutions and initiatives to help MSP businesses grow and succeed. These include the SolarWinds Head Nerds program, an established team of five SolarWinds MSP partner advocates who deliver training, resources, and consultative sessions to help MSPs understand and maximize the most important business growth areas including security, backup, automation, and operations.
The Head Nerds Program builds on SolarWinds’ commitment to customer success and partnership with the MSP Institute (a comprehensive learning platform) that is available for SolarWinds partners through the SolarWinds MSP Success Center.
SolarWinds MSP has also created the MSP Institute Webinar Series, that includes topics such as advice on how to build and manage a successful sales team, best practices for operational success, and tips on how to manage customer relationships. While the deeper courses are available exclusively to SolarWinds partners through the MSP Institute, the webinar series learning opportunities are available to any MSP.
“CRN’s 2020 Women of the Channel list recognizes an accomplished group of influential women leaders whose strategic vision and unique achievements accelerate channel growth through cultivated partnerships, innovative thought leadership, and unwavering dedication to the IT channel,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “We are proud to honor them for their accomplishments and contributions to driving channel success.”
