SAN MATEO, Calif.--()--Hammerspace, the pioneer of the Global Data Environment, is honored to announce that CRN™, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Jim Choumas, Vice President of Channel Sales, to its coveted 2022 Channel Chiefs. CRN’s annual Channel Chiefs project identifies top IT channel vendor executives who continually demonstrate expertise, influence and innovation in channel leadership.

As Hammerspace’s global channel leader, Choumas ensures that its channel partners have the tools to architect a Global Data Environment to help their customers effectively leverage a remote workforce and give them the ability to orchestrate data to any location in the world across data centers, multiple cloud regions, and multiple clouds. The Hammerspace channel program provides training for sales and engineers, resources to create demand, and tools to profitably grow their business with solutions to help their customers succeed in a decentralized environment.

“Being truly 100-percent channel-oriented is a commitment Hammerspace has adopted as a core philosophy,” said Choumas. “The Partnerspace channel program gives partners the resources and training to help their customers leverage a remote workforce and overcome modern business challenges. Showing a path to monetize the hybrid cloud and succeed in digital transformation allows partners to grow and increase their consultative practices. We're excited with the partner response to our program and Global Data Environment solution and look forward to supporting their success in exceeding their customers’ expectations.”

A panel of CRN editors selected the honorees for their channel dedication, industry stature and accomplishments as channel advocates. The 2022 Channel Chiefs are influential leaders who continue to shape the IT channel with innovative strategies, programs and partnerships.
