SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--iTalent, a leading global technology consulting services company, today announced that Renee La Londe, Founder & CEO, has been named to The Channel Company’s prestigious 2015 CRN® Women of the Channel. The annual list honors outstanding female executives across vendor channel organizations, distributors, solution providers and other women prominently involved in the IT channel ecosystem for their successes and the far-reaching impact they are having on the technology industry going forward.
This year’s Women of the Channel were carefully reviewed and selected by the editors of CRN based on their accomplishments and the influence they wield over the technology channel.
As a successful business and tech entrepreneur, Mrs. La Londe is an inspiration and role model to other young female professionals and entrepreneurs who are either contemplating starting or have already started their own venture. In 2005, Renee left the safety and security of corporate America to start her own high tech, IT consulting services company. From bootstrapping to self-sustaining profitability, iTalent is now experiencing explosive growth even against big name consulting companies and has secured partnerships with heavy hitters such as Cisco, Lithium and Jive.
Renee recently won the bronze Stevie Award for Female Entrepreneur of the Year, and participated as an expert speaker at GSMA Connected Women conference and Mobile World Congress. She also co-wrote the book, Social Knowledge: Organizational Currencies in the New Knowledge Economy.
To add to her accolades, Renee has been recognized as one of Silicon Valley Business Journal’s Women of Influence 2015 and was nominated as a Women 2.0 Founder to Watch. Her company, iTalent, won the Best in Biz 2014 International Gold Award as Most Innovative Service of the Year, and three Stevie Asia-Pacific Awards 2015.
“These executives have made a lasting mark on the industry, expanding the breadth of influence in the technology channel,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “We congratulate the Women of the Channel, and celebrate their innovative contributions and commitment to the IT channel community.”
“I’m so honored to be part of this notable list of prominent women in the tech industry,” said Renee La Londe, Founder & CEO of iTalent. “It has been a great journey and I’m lucky to have an amazing team of colleagues to support me along the way.”
The Women of the Channel will be featured in the June issue of CRN, and online at www.CRN.com.
