Panda Security, a world leader in advanced cybersecurity solutions and services, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Joao Caires, VP of Sales, North America, to its prestigious list of 2019 Channel Chiefs. The top IT channel leaders included on this list continually strive to drive growth and revenue in their organization through their channel partners.
Each of the 2019 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated exceptional leadership, vision, and commitment to their channel partner programs. Channel Chief honorees are selected by CRN’s editorial staff as a result of their professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the channel partner community, and strategies for driving future growth and innovation.
Caires was included on this year’s Channel Chiefs list due to the massive changes he brought to Panda’s channel strategy over the last year as VP of Sales, North America. From expanding internal roles, to encouraging sales representatives to be more channel-focused, to restructuring marketing and support offerings to meet partners’ needs, Joao worked tirelessly to completely reinvent Panda Security’s channel sales organization. The momentum he created will continue through 2019 and beyond, as Panda embraces a 100% Channel Sales strategy in North America.
“The individuals on CRN’s 2019 Channel Chiefs list deserve special recognition for their contribution and support in the development of robust partner programs, innovative business strategies, and significant influence to the overall health of the IT channel,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “We applaud each Channel Chief’s remarkable record of accomplishments and look forward to following their continued success.”
Caires expressed his excitement for being included on the list, “Revamping our partner program was a major focus for us in 2018. We put immense effort into educating our partners about EDR and cybersecurity awareness, which translated into new partners adopting our flagship solution, Adaptive Defense 360. To receive this external validation for our hard work on top of that success is an incredible honor.”
