Everything Channel’s CRN Magazine Recognizes Top Women in Industry

NetApp’s Julie Parrish, vice president of Global Partner Sales; Debbie Medal, senior director of Marketing for Worldwide Channel Programs; and Tricia Jennett, Channel Partner Marketing manager, have been recognized by Everything Channel’s CRN magazine as three of the top Women of the Channel.

CRN‘s annual list recognizes female executives across vendors’ channel organizations, distributors, and solution providers for their accomplishments over the past year and the far-reaching impact they are having on the technology industry going forward. This year’s Women of the Channel were chosen by the editors of CRN magazine based on their achievements as executives and the amount of influence they wield over the technology channel.

“Women hold many prominent executive positions at vendor organizations, distributors, and solution provider organizations, providing critical insight and influence when it comes to technology and the channel,” says Kelley Damore, VP and editorial director at Everything Channel. We want to honor and congratulate these women for their contributions to the industry and their respective organizations.”

This is the second consecutive year that both Parrish and Medal have been honored and the first year for Jennett.

“Having three women recognized by Everything Channel and CRN as Top Women of the Channel speaks to the quality of the NetApp Partner Program and the performance of our partners as much as it does to the three of us,” said Julie Parrish, vice president of Global Partner Sales for NetApp. “NetApp is committed to expanding the NetApp Partner Program by opening strategic opportunities for our partners to grow their revenue and meet their customers’ demands, especially as customers look to their partners and vendors to provide them with the innovation required to transform their data centers for the needs of tomorrow.”

A special feature on the Women of the Channel is in the July issue of CRN magazine; expanded coverage will be featured online at www.crn.com.
