FREMONT, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SYNNEX Corporation (NYSE: SNX), a leading distributor of IT and CE products and services, announced today that Kevin Murai, President and Chief Executive Officer, was named one of the Top 100 Channel Service Leaders in the Channel by CRN. This annual list salutes individual channel executives for implementing new strategies and programs as a way to increase partner sales while shaping their own organization’s future.
Mr. Murai was also named one of the Top 25 Channel Sales Leaders for 2012. He was selected for both honors due to his continued vision and leadership, which pushed SYNNEX to its 101st consecutive profitable quarter through the Company’s evolution to a more services-oriented organization. Doing so has created deeper partnerships and more sustainable revenue streams for both SYNNEX’ vendor partners and solution providers. Additionally, Mr. Murai is leading SYNNEX to new avenues in cloud computing with its CLOUDSolv platform and overall cloud strategy.
In the almost five years Mr. Murai has led SYNNEX Corporation, he has orchestrated progressive moves and investments that have propelled the distributor into a more services-oriented business model. Mr. Murai has more than 20 years of distribution channel experience with focused expertise in global management, operations, information technology and customer relationships.
“I am truly honored to be chosen as one of the Top 25 Channel Sales Leaders in the industry,” said Kevin Murai, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Being part of this esteemed group further reinforces the value of SYNNEX’ continued growth in providing a unique aggregation of services to both our customers and vendor partners.”
CRN’s 2012 Top 100 Executives list was based on nominations from solution providers who rated channel vendor executives based on influence, effectiveness and viability, as well as business and sales impact. The CRN Editorial team judged nominees based on sales volume, channel investment and advocacy, and their performance in 2012 CRN research projects such as Channel Champs and the Annual Report Card.
“From sales leaders and innovators to mavericks and up-and-comers, it takes different types of executives with different philosophies to drive success in the IT Channel,” said Kelley Damore, Vice President and Editorial Director for UBM Channel. “We’re recognizing this year’s Top 100 Executives for their commitment to the channel, as well as their willingness to adopt new strategies and policies in order to drive greater sales for partners, while positioning their own company for future growth. We salute these leaders for their hard work and devotion to the technology channel.”
