“We’re thrilled that Vicki has been recognized as one of its Channel Chiefs." Andy Chang, General Manager of EnGenius Technologies

EnGenius® Technologies, Inc., the leader in long-range Wireless-N networking solutions for homes and businesses, announced today that Vicki Bilyeu has been named one of CRN’s 2012 Channel Chiefs. This prestigious list of the most influential and powerful leaders in the IT channel recognizes those executives directly responsible for driving channel sales growth within their organization, while evangelizing and defending the importance of the channel throughout the entire IT industry.

As the channel marketing manager for EnGenius, Bilyeu created the strategy and implemented programs that resulted in a 12 percent increase in channel partners in 2011. Much of this growth was directly attributed to an increased focus on the vertical markets including healthcare, education, retail, and government. In addition to investing heavily in the areas of MDF and technical support, Bilyeu realized the benefits that partners could gain from specialized technical training and enhanced EnGenius’ online training resources and made them available to all channel partners.

For the ninth consecutive year, Channel Chiefs were selected by the CRN editorial team based on channel experience, program innovations, channel-driven revenue, and public support for the importance of IT Channel Sales.

“We’re thrilled that Vicki has been recognized by CRN as one of its Channel Chiefs as it validates her efforts and accomplishments to create and implement a quality channel program that was designed to help our partners grow their businesses and increase their revenues,” stated Andy Chang, General Manager of EnGenius Technologies. “While working with vendors that manufacture products that deliver performance, reliability and value is of great importance to resellers, it’s ultimately the ability of the reseller to make money by selling, installing and maintaining a particular vendor’s solutions that create the most beneficial channel partnerships. The programs that Vicki has put into place are giving our resellers the best of both worlds by offering them high-performance, long-range, versatile solutions through a reseller program that provides them with training, demo units, support, and margins to help them grow their businesses and increase their profits.”

“The 2012 Channel Chiefs list recognizes vendor executives dedicated to driving channel programs in the IT marketplace,” said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, UBM Channel. “Our annual Channel Chiefs issue is a must-read for IT solution providers evaluating new vendors or looking to expand solution offerings. These are the people, the products and the programs that any savvy solution provider needs to know. We congratulate this year’s Channel Chiefs for their stellar records of business innovation applaud them for their continued dedication to the partner community.”

Selected by CRN's editorial staff, the 2012 Channel Chiefs list is featured in the February issue of CRN Magazine and will be featured online at
