Scale Computing, the market leader in hyperconverged solutions for midsized companies, announced today that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Kevin Greenwood, Senior Director of Global Channels, 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.
Greenwood was selected as a Channel Chief for his role in helping Scale double sales of its HC3 virtualization platform solutions over the past year exclusively through its channel of solution providers. The company continues to find success with providing midmarket organizations with game-changing hyperconverged solutions while rewarding competitive margins and marketing support to its resellers. Greenwood is part of Scale's efforts in launching a multi-tier channel program that looks to expand the number of partners by 500 percent this year.
