Tripp Lite, a global manufacturer of power protection and connectivity solutions, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named three Tripp Lite directors to the highly respected 2021 Women of the Channel list. This year’s Tripp Lite honorees are Christy Prosapio, Director of International Marketing; Kimberly Walkey, Director of U.S. Channel Sales Distribution and Michelle Wang, Director of Marketing – USA, Canada & Western Europe Channel.

The annual Women of the Channel list recognizes the unique strengths, vision and achievements of female leaders in the IT channel. The women honored on this year’s list pushed forward with comprehensive business plans, marketing initiatives and other innovative ideas to support their partners and customers, helping them through the uncertainty brought on by the global COVID-19 pandemic. CRN celebrates these exceptional women for their leadership, dedication and channel advocacy.

“Christy, Kim, Michelle and their teams were able to quickly adapt their strategies to maintain collaborative relationships with our channel partners during this challenging time,” said Glen Haeflinger, Tripp Lite’s President. “Their creativity in our new business environment has had a direct impact on the mutual success of Tripp Lite and our partners. Tripp Lite is proud to see them honored for the fourth consecutive year.”

Walkey oversees Tripp Lite’s sales strategies in the U.S. distribution channel. She and her team transitioned to a virtual/digital platform to meet the needs of Tripp Lite partners and clearly communicate new areas of opportunity.

Wang leads the development and execution of the overall marketing strategy for the United States, Canada and Western Europe. She and her team developed a playbook of virtual engagement ideas for sales teams to keep channel partners up to date with Tripp Lite products and opportunities.
