QUINCY, Mass., May 20, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Granite Telecommunications, a $1.4 billion annual revenue provider of communications services to multilocation businesses and government agencies, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Lauren Grenier, marketing director at Granite, to its prestigious 2019 Women of the Channel list.
Leaders on CRN's annual list are recognized for their contributions to channel advocacy, channel growth and visionary leadership. They are selected by CRN editors from a multitude of applications based on their professional accomplishments, demonstrated expertise and ongoing dedication to the IT channel.
"CRN's 2019 Women of the Channel list honors influential leaders who are accelerating channel growth through mutually-beneficial partnerships, incredible leadership, strategic vision, and unique contributions in their field," said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. "This accomplished group of leaders is driving channel success and we are proud to honor their achievements."
Grenier began her tech career in channel marketing at Granite in 2012, quickly rising through the ranks from sales coordinator to sales and marketing manager before being promoted in 2018 to run marketing for the entire organization. She is an active member of the Alliance of Channel Women, currently serving as co-chair of the Newsletter Committee and member of the Communications Committee.
During her seven-year career at Granite, Grenier has worked to enhance communications with the company's channel partners and her efforts were pivotal to nearly tripling channel revenue to $200 million during that time.
"It's an honor to be recognized with so many accomplished women on CRN's 2019 Women of the Channel list," said Grenier. "The incredible growth of our channel program is a testament to our excellent partners and Granite's enthusiastic commitment to making sure they have everything they need to successfully serve their clients and grow their own businesses."
