Tegile Cements Channel Leadership as Third Executive Named to CRN’s List of Channel Chiefs in Two Years

Tegile Systems, the leading provider of flash-driven storage arrays for databases, virtualized server and virtual desktop environments, today announced that Charles Bass, vice president of channel sales, has been named to CRN's prestigious list of 2016 Channel Chiefs. Individuals are selected for inclusion based on professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the channel partner community and strategies for driving future growth and innovation.

The 2016 Channel Chiefs represent top leaders in the IT channel who excel at leading growth and revenue in their organizations through channel sales. Bass was recognized for his contributions to expanding Tegile's global reach and dedication to the company's partner community. The recognition comes on the heels of Tegile announcing 350 percent year-over-year growth in systems delivered in 2015. To support the company's growth trajectory, Bass will maintain his focus on increasing Tegile's channel sales and incorporating new qualified partners into the Tegile ecosystem in 2016.

"At Tegile, we pride ourselves in our 100 percent channel-focused sales strategy and are constantly striving to bring the most innovative storage solutions and go-to-market programs to our resellers," said David Bangs, senior vice president of sales of Tegile. "This recognition is a testament to Tegile's dedication to equipping its channel partners with the dedicated sales and technical resources to succeed."

Bass joined Tegile in August 2015, bringing over 25 years of sales, channel, marketing and business development experience at companies including Promark Technology, Hewlett Packard and LeftHand Networks. Since joining Tegile, he has helped grow Tegile's partner community over 50 percent. The company also eliminated legacy direct sales transactions to become an entirely channel-driven organization.

"We are honored to present the 2016 lineup of CRN Channel Chiefs, comprised of outstanding executives who move our entire industry forward by cultivating exemplary partner programs and executing cutting-edge business strategy," said Robert Faletra, CEO, 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 incredible strides and look forward to following their accomplishments in the coming year."
