CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--()--Resilient Systems, the industry standard solution for incident response (IR), announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Gene Fay, Vice President of Sales, to its prestigious list of 2016 Channel Chiefs. This annual list represents top leaders in the IT channel who excel at driving growth and revenue in their organizations through channel partners.

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 2016 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated loyalty and ongoing support for the IT channel by consistently promoting, defending, and executing outstanding channel partner programs.

As cyber threats continue to evolve around the world, Resilient’s industry-leading Incident Response Platform (IRP) is helping channel partners enable end-users to manage and mitigate security incidents faster and more effectively. This is ultimately empowering them to thrive in the face of cyberattacks. Fay has spent the last three years building Resilient’s channel program into a world-class professional services resource, expanding it dramatically over the last year to serve more than 50 partners in 20 different countries.

"We are honored to present the 2016 lineup of CRN Channel Chiefs, comprised of outstanding executives who move our entire industry forward by cultivating exemplary partner programs and executing cutting-edge business strategy,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “They represent an extraordinary group of individuals who lead by example and serve as both invaluable advocates and innovators of the IT channel.

Resilient Systems has experienced dramatic growth in both the size and number of partners interested in Resilient in recent years. Additionally, the company has seen an increase in deals through partners in the six and seven-figure range, and is expecting the upward trend to continue – both in the U.S. and across EMEA and APAC – as the demand for incident response continues to rise.
