Following this past year of unprecedented sales growth, I’m excited to see the ways in which additional partnerships will be cultivated.

Tripp Lite, a world-leading manufacturer of power protection and connectivity solutions, announced today that Bob Nahorski 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 and growth within their organization, while evangelizing and defending the importance of the channel throughout the entire IT industry.

Nahorski, responsible for overseeing Tripp Lite’s US Channel and field sales organization, accomplished key initiatives in the past year such as driving monumental sales growth and providing channel partners with an expanded list of support tools, including dedicated free tech support and free solution integration services for rackmount and cloud/data center customers. He increased marketing support dedicated to the channel to expand Web content, tools (e.g., online configuration guides), SEO and attachments. Under Nahorski’s leadership, Tripp Lite has been named “Partner of the Year” by both Insight and CDW, “Supply Chain Excellence Award Winner” by Ingram Micro, “Best Channel Vendor” by Business Solutions, and “Preferred Supplier Program Award Winner” by United Stationers.

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.

“With nearly two decades of dedication to Tripp Lite under his belt, Bob is assuredly deserving of this recognition from CRN,” said Glen Haeflinger, Tripp Lite President. “Following this past year of unprecedented sales growth that occurred as a testament to his incredible leadership and unwavering commitment to the success of our channel partners, I’m excited to see the ways in which additional partnerships will be cultivated and cemented under his guidance.”

“I’m honored to have joined the ranks of so many noteworthy peers in CRN’s annual listing of Channel Chiefs,” said Nahorski. “However, we’re determined to position Tripp Lite and our partners for even greater success this year!"

“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 record of business innovation and 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
