SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EVault, Inc., a Seagate Company (NASDAQ:STX), announced today that Terry Cunningham, president and general manager, has been named one of CRN’s 2013 Channel Chiefs for the third consecutive year. This prestigious list of the most influential and powerful leaders in the IT channel recognizes those executives directly responsible for driving channel sales and growth within their organization, while evangelizing and defending the importance of the channel throughout the entire IT industry.
Cunningham, a former channel partner himself, has over 20 years of experience in indirect sales. He was named a Channel Chief again as a result of his exceptional leadership, innovative ideas, and commitment to partner success in the rapidly evolving backup and recovery space. Cunningham has also been instrumental in driving monthly recurring revenue (MRR) models for the channel, bringing them into the future of software delivery. Additionally, he was recognized as one of CRN’s Top 100 Channel Executives in 2012, an award given to the most influential and innovative channel executives in North America.
Under Cunningham’s leadership this past year, EVault expanded its global channel presence announcing strategic partnerships with blue-chip businesses in the EMEA, APAC and Latin American regions bringing its portfolio of cloud-connected data protection to more businesses in these high-growth markets. The company also launched EVault 7, a significant upgrade to EVault’s cloud-connected backup and recovery platform, and a guaranteed SLA and speedy 4-hour option for its EVault Cloud Disaster Recovery Service. Both offerings bring more substantial data backup and recovery options and opportunities for profitability to the channel.
“It’s an immense honor to be named one of CRN’s Channel Chiefs for a third consecutive year, but the real praise must be given to EVault’s channel team and our partners for their tireless commitment to and passion for customer service,” said Cunningham. “Due to their outstanding work, we’ve been able to strengthen existing channel relationships, introduce a number of attractive services and expand our reach into growing international markets. EVault’s success relies heavily on the strong two-way commitment we have with our channel partners - we provide outstanding cloud-connected backup and recovery solutions and they in turn help us lead the data protection industry into the future.”
For over ten years, Channel Chiefs have been selected by the CRN editorial team based on channel experience, program innovations, channel-driven revenue, and public support for the importance of IT Channel Sales.
“The 2013 Channel Chiefs list recognizes vendor executives dedicated to driving channel programs in the IT marketplace,” said Kelley Damore, senior vice president, editorial director, CRN. “Our annual Channel Chiefs issue is a must-read for IT solution providers evaluating new vendors or looking to expand solution offerings. These are the people, the products and the programs that any savvy solution provider needs to know. We congratulate this year’s Channel Chiefs for their stellar record of business innovation and applaud them for their continued dedication to the partner community.”
Selected by CRN's editorial staff, the 2013 Channel Chiefs list is featured in the 2/25/13 issue of CRN Magazine and will be featured online at www.crn.com.
