IGEL, a world leader in endpoint management software for the secure enterprise, announced today that Simon Clephan, Vice President of Business Development and Strategic Alliances, has been named to The Channel Company's Top Midmarket IT Executives list. The annual list honors influential vendor and solution provider executives who have demonstrated an exceptionally strong commitment to the midmarket.

Clephan joined IGEL in January 2017 with more than 30 years of experience in sales and marketing for the enterprise software industry including virtualization, VDI and end-user computing.

"We are proud to see Simon recognized for his passion and commitment to helping midmarket companies achieve their end-user productivity goals when they leverage IGEL's innovative, software-defined endpoint management solutions," said Jed Ayres, President and CEO, IGEL North America. "His maniacal focus on doing what it takes to ensure that midmarket businesses are getting the most out of their VDI, application virtualization and Desktop-as-a-Service solutions, whether it is spending time in the trenches interviewing end-users and IT professionals about their most pressing concerns, or immersing himself in case studies, is critical to both our success and that of our partners and customers."

Since joining IGEL, Clephan has also played an instrumental role in helping the company achieve a number of key milestones, including:

  • Achieving 890% increase in software revenue in the U.S. market in the first half of 2017 and 156% worldwide through aggressive sales and marketing initiatives.

  • Strengthening the relationships that IGEL has with ecosystem partners including AMD, Caradigm, Imprivata, Lakeside Software and Samsung.

"The Channel Company and Midsize Enterprise Summit are proud to recognize these individuals and the companies they represent for their remarkable efforts to meet the unique IT needs of this fast-growing industry," said Robert C. DeMarzo, Senior Vice President of Event Content and Strategy, The Channel Company. "The winners will be honored at this year's Midsize Enterprise Summit Fall this month in San Antonio, Texas, the nation's largest gathering of midmarket senior IT executives and the ideal venue in which to honor these deserving leaders. We congratulate each of the honorees and look forward to their continued success."
