CRN 100 People You Don't Know But Should

Bob’s unwavering dedication to the success of our channel partners has led to unprecedented sales growth

Tripp Lite, a world-leading manufacturer of power protection and connectivity solutions, today announced that Bob Nahorski, Executive Vice President – US Channel Sales, 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 individual 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 program without fanfare, exhibiting the strength, determination and creativity required to support solution providers on a daily basis.

Nahorski, responsible for overseeing Tripp Lite´s US Channel and field sales organization, accomplished key initiatives such as driving robust sales growth and providing channel partners with an expanded list of support tools, including dedicated tech support and solution integration services for enterprise and data center customers. Under Nahorski´s leadership, Tripp Lite has been named “Partner of the Year” by Insight and CDW, “Supply Chain Excellence Award Winner” by Ingram Micro and “Preferred Supplier Program Award Winner” by United Stationers.

“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. This list recognizes the behind-the-scenes influencers within a vendor organization who are making a significant impact on the company’s channel program, and the channel as a whole, by working in any capacity necessary to drive profit and success. 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.”

“I’d like to thank CRN and UBM Channel for this recognition,” said Nahorski. “I’d also like to thank my colleagues for their hard work and our channel partners for their continued support and loyalty. Without the channel, none of our success would be possible.”

“Bob’s unwavering dedication to the success of our channel partners has led to unprecedented sales growth,” said Glen Haeflinger, Tripp Lite President. “Under his steady guidance, our partnerships have flourished and our continuing expansion into new markets has been extremely successful. On behalf of everyone at Tripp Lite, I want to congratulate Bob for this well-deserved recognition.”

A sample of the list will be published in print and online at on June 25, 2012.
