SOMERSET, N.J., July 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Raritan, a leading provider of data center infrastructure management (DCIM) and power monitoring solutions, today announced that Victoria Zona, Raritan Channel Sales Director, has been named to CRN's 2013 Women of the Channel list, and has been recognized as one of this year's Power 100. This is the fifth consecutive year that Zona has been recognized by CRN.
The annual Women of the Channel list highlights executives across vendor channel organizations, distributors and solution providers based on their accomplishments over the past year, and the far-reaching impact they are having on the technology industry going forward. The Power 100 recognizes an elite subset of the women based on their rank, influence, channel savvy, and exceptional achievements.
Zona's channel knowledge and leadership skills have helped propel Raritan in just a few years from a new player in the data center energy management space to one that today is a leader in intelligent energy management. Zona also has helped Raritan become a recognized player in the emerging DCIM (data center infrastructure management) arena, while supporting Raritan's initial business of KVM management solutions.
"We congratulate Vicki for the CRN Power 100 award," said Gary Marks, Raritan Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing.
