Robyn, a second-time honoree, has played a key role in growing AppRiver’s channel from just a few hundred partners to more than 3,500 partners worldwide. In her nine-year career with AppRiver, she has helped hundreds of partners grow and nurture thriving companies.

Her responsibilities range from onboarding new partners to conducting lunch-and-learn session that promote best practices and introduce new features and benefits to AppRiver’s reseller community.

Since its inception, AppRiver has sustained an impressive 93% customer retention rate while growing its customer base to more than 53,000 companies and more than 10 million mailboxes worldwide. Both Robyn and Victoria have played an important role in the growth of AppRiver’s reseller program, with each contributing significantly to AppRiver’s outstanding partner training programs.
