We’re pleased to share that four senior leaders from Red Hat’s channel team have been recognized as CRN Channel Chiefs. Included in the 2017 list are 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 Partners, Alliances, and Commercial Sales; and Stephen Mungall, vice president, Partner Sales and Strategy. Enzweiler also earned recognition on CRN’s 2017 "50 Most Influential" list, honoring elite executives that "drive the channel agenda and evangelize the importance of channel partnerships."
CRN’s Channel Chiefs represent the top leaders in the channel. Executives are selected based on their accomplishments and contributions to their organization’s programs, as well as their involvement in the partner community. Bolton oversaw the development of solutions designed to enable partners to achieve faster time to revenue; Enzweiler helped to establish Red Hat’s collaboration with Eurotech, leading to the creation of an open source solution that is designed to simplify Internet of Things (IoT) integration and accelerate the development of IoT projects; Martin led the introduction of Red Hat’s PEER (Partner Engagement, Execution, Results) Program; and Mungall led the charge on efforts to expand Red Hat’s global partner footprint and help partners sell to international customers.
Red Hat’s channel leaders are not strangers to the CRN Channel Chiefs list. This is the sixth year in a row for Enzweiler. Bolton and Martin were also honored in 2015 and 2016, while Mungall was named a 2016 Channel Chief.
In addition to the Channel Chiefs accolades, we’re happy to share that Red Hat was also named one of CRN’s 2017 "Coolest Cloud Platform and Development Vendors". This is the second year in a row that Red Hat has received this honor.
