Pleasanton, CA (PRWEB) June 26, 2013
Steelwedge, the leader in cloud-based sales and operations planning (S&OP) solutions, today announced that Michelle Jones, Vice President of Alliances, has been recognized by UBM Tech Channel’s CRN as one of the top Women of the Channel for the third consecutive year. CRN’s annual list recognizes nearly 300 female executives across vendor channel organizations, distributors and solution providers for their accomplishments over the past year, and the far-reaching impact they are having on the technology industry going forward. This year’s Women of the Channel were chosen by the editors of CRN based on their achievements as executives and the amount of influence they wield over the technology channel. These women represent a changing trend in a traditionally male dominated industry.
Michelle is responsible for developing and advancing global and regional strategic consulting and technology alliances to deliver added value to Steelwedge customers. With more than 15 years of experience in multinational channel strategy and implementation, she brings deep expertise in relationship management, revenue generation, channel, marketing, operations and event management to her role at Steelwedge.
“We honor and congratulate this list of influential women who are dedicated to supporting the mission of the channel,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, UBM Tech Channel. “For years, we have identified and celebrated the women who have made an indelible mark on the technology industry through unmatched innovation and razor focus on meeting the needs of the IT channel community.”
“It’s an honor to be recognized as a CRN Woman of the Channel for the third year in a row,” Jones said. “It’s equally as rewarding to see the ranks of female IT executives continue to grow. CRN’s annual list is an inspiration for young women seeking to break into the technology channel. Steelwedge’s partner program, driven by our 100% cloud-based S&OP solutions, provide partners with unique opportunities to expand their footprint, assemble the right solution for their customers and offer a faster time to value delivery model.”
A special feature of the Women of the Channel is in the June issue of CRN magazine and expanded coverage of The 100 Most Powerful Women of the Channel will be featured online at http://www.crn.com.
