SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Scality, world leader in object and cloud storage, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named David Harvey, VP of Strategic Alliances at Scality, to its prestigious list of 2017 Channel Chiefs. The executives on this annual list represent top leaders in the IT channel who excel at driving growth and revenue for their organizations through channel partners.
With more than 17 years of experience in channel-focused global technology companies, Harvey is responsible for driving revenue growth through Scality partner alliances. Harvey most notably secured strategic partnerships with the world’s top three server vendors (HPE, Dell and Cisco), which no other object storage company has done. Scality’s strategic investment and go-to-market efforts spearheaded by Harvey are critical components of the company’s 2016 growth.
“This recognition is very well-deserved and we are proud to have David’s experience and leadership behind our channel program. He has been instrumental to the development and successful launch of our Scality Atlas Partner Program, which grew the number of our global channel partners by more than one hundred percent in 2016,” said Erwan Ménard, President and COO of Scality. “We have comprehensively invested in training, labs, and customer marketing events around the world to help our partners aggressively develop the software-defined storage space.”
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 2017 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated loyalty and ongoing support for the IT channel by consistently promoting, defending and executing outstanding channel partner programs.
“The executives on our 2017 Channel Chiefs list have distinguished themselves by building strong partner programs, developing and executing effective business strategy and helping to advance the channel as a whole,” said Bob Faletra, CEO of 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. We applaud their achievements and look forward to their successes in the coming year.”
