We are proud to announce that four of Red Hat's channel leaders have been named to CRN’s 2016 Channel Chiefs list. Margaret-Ann Bolton, senior director, Global Partner Marketing; Mark Enzweiler, senior vice president, Global Channel Sales and Alliances; D. Robert Martin, vice president, North American Partner Sales; and Stephen Mungall, director, Global Channel Sales, were all named to this year's prestigious list.
CRN's Channel Chiefs list recognizes the top leaders in the channel, with executives chosen based on their accomplishments and contributions to their organization's channel program as well as dedication to the partner community. Enzweiler was also named to the 50 Most Influential Channel Chiefs for 2016 – an elite subset of the larger Channel Chiefs list.
Enzweiler pointed to providing partners with a deep bench of OpenStack skills as a top accomplishment for the past year; Bolton was recognized for her work re-launching the Red Hat Certified Cloud and Service Provider program; Martin played a key role in helping partner organizations increase profitability over the past year; and Mungall helped expand Red Hat's provider offering to manage service providers and added more of Red Hat's portfolio of products to the Red Hat Certified Cloud and Service Provider program.
In addition to the Channel Chiefs list, we are also proud to share that Red Hat was recently named to CRN's 2016 Data Center 100 list and CRN's 2016 Coolest Cloud Vendors list, for our efforts with our OpenShift container application platform and Red Hat Mobile Application Platform for developing and deploying mobile apps.
