Zenoss Inc., the leader in hybrid IT monitoring and analytics, today announced that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, named Patrick Emerson, vice president of worldwide sales at Zenoss, to its prestigious list of 2017 Channel Chiefs. The executives on this annual list represent top leaders in the IT channel who excel at driving growth and revenue in their organizations through channel partners.
Channel Chief honorees are selected by CRN's editorial staff on the basis of their professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the channel partner community, and strategies for driving future growth and innovation. Each of the 2017 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated loyalty and ongoing support for the IT channel by consistently promoting, defending and executing outstanding channel partner programs.
Over the past two years, Emerson has reinvigorated the Zenoss channel program, significantly growing new business through channel partners and OEM agreements. As the IT industry continues to evolve and transition to hybrid environments, Zenoss is quickly becoming the go-to monitoring and analytics platform and is a trusted partner to value-added resellers (VARs) at the epicenter of this transformation.
"The executives on our 2017 Channel Chiefs list have distinguished themselves by building strong partner programs, developing and executing effective business strategy, and helping to advance the channel as a whole," said Bob Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. "They represent an extraordinary group of individuals who lead by example and serve as both invaluable advocates and innovators of the IT channel. We applaud their achievements and look forward to their successes in the coming year."
"I'm excited to be recognized with this prestigious award, and I'm even more excited for our partners around the world," Emerson said. "They've chosen to drive customer success through IT modernization and innovation using Zenoss as the cornerstone of their strategy - and they're posting record numbers in doing so. Our channel partners are critical to our overall company strategy, and we'll continue to reward them with updated programs, incentives and putting them front and center in driving our growth."
