Commvault, a global leader in enterprise backup, recovery, archive and the cloud, announced today that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Ralph Nimergood, Vice President of Indirect Strategy, Channel Sales, to its exclusive 2018 list of the 50 Most Influential Channel Chiefs. The executives on this annual list are part of an elite group drawn from the larger pool of Channel Chief honorees each year and represent the cream of the IT channel crop - leaders who drive the channel agenda and evangelize the importance of channel partnerships. This distinguished group is recognized for outstanding achievement in driving growth and revenue in their organization, as well as extraordinary leadership in the channel as a whole.

All 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 2018 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated loyalty and ongoing support for the channel by consistently promoting, defending and executing outstanding partner programs. However, only 50 of these were selected for the Most Influential list, each singled out for his or her prominent role in guiding and shaping the IT channel itself.

Strengthening Commvault's Global Partner Ecosystem

Over the past year, Nimergood has strengthened Commvault's global partner ecosystem, with several new or enhanced channel business development, marketing, enablement, pricing, rewards and other initiatives. These initiatives have made it even easier and more profitable for Commvault's channel partners to help their clients simplify data protection, management and activation with the powerful Commvault Data Platform. With Commvault, these partners can accelerate data transformation for their clients, improving their business outcomes.

"The executives on CRN's 2018 Channel Chiefs list stand out for their exceptional leadership, vision and commitment to the channel," said Robert Faletra, Executive Chairman of The Channel Company. "These individuals deserve special recognition for their development and support of robust partner programs, innovative business strategy, and significant contribution to the overall health of a vigorously growing channel. We applaud each Channel Chief's impressive record of accomplishments and look forward to their future successes."   

"Our investments in deepening and expanding our global partner network have been essential in helping us grow and scale Commvault's business," said Nimergood. "This recognition from CRN acknowledges both the success of these investments and the tireless efforts of our channel and alliances team. In the coming year, we look forward to building on this foundation through engagement, simplification and programs that further improve our partners' ability to increase revenue and profits with the industry's leading data management platform for on-premises, hybrid and multi-cloud environments."

The CRN Channel Chiefs recognition for Nimergood follows the recent appointment of Owen Taraniuk to Head of Worldwide Partnerships and Market Development at Commvault. As part of Taraniuk's leadership team, Nimergood and Taraniuk will work closely to lead the development of new global shared services group within the Worldwide Partnerships and Market Development Group. Nimergood will also serve as Chief of Staff within the Worldwide Partnerships and Market Development Group.
