BELLEVUE, Wash., Feb. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Nintex, www.nintex.com, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Josh Waldo, Vice President of Channels and Product Marketing at Nintex, to its prestigious list of 2017 Channel Chiefs. The executives on this annual list represent top leaders in the IT channel who excel at driving growth and revenue in their organizations through channel partners.
Channel Chief honorees are selected by CRN's editorial staff on the basis of their professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the channel partner community and strategies for driving future growth and innovation. Each of the 2017 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated loyalty and ongoing support for the IT channel by consistently promoting, defending and executing outstanding channel partner programs.
Waldo and his team are responsible for managing and enabling Nintex's thriving partner ecosystem, comprised of 1,700-plus partners, and for establishing strategic alliances that help customers and partners utilize process automation and process intelligence to streamline how work gets done, connect systems through the cloud, and achieve more profitable operations.
"Josh Waldo has made tremendous impact to Nintex since joining us three years ago," said Nintex CEO John Burton. "This is the second-year in a row that Josh has received the CRN Channel Chief designation—a testament to his commitment to the success of our customers and partners who are using Nintex technology to automate and simplify business processes across the enterprise and to drive digital transformation."
In 2016, Nintex launched Nintex Workflow Cloud™, the company's next gen cloud architecture, which enables partners to expand their workflow businesses across major technology ecosystems including Microsoft and Salesforce. Throughout the year, Waldo and his team worked to educate current partners on the value of Nintex Workflow Cloud as well as to establish new partnerships with leading SaaS providers as well as cloud focused system integrators to drive Nintex platform extensibility and to increase addressable markets. The Nintex Partner Portal in both the Microsoft ecosystem and now in the Salesforce ecosystem is noted by partners as one of the best in the industry. Also, in July, Waldo's team launched v1 of the Nintex Xchange™, an online gallery where Nintex users and partners can upload, share, and find a variety of workflow solutions and assets directly from the Nintex Community to help accelerate solution development.
"The executives on our 2017 Channel Chiefs list have distinguished themselves by building strong partner programs, developing and executing effective business strategy and helping to advance the channel as a whole," said Bob Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. "They represent an extraordinary group of individuals who lead by example and serve as both invaluable advocates and innovators of the IT channel. We applaud their achievements and look forward to their successes in the coming year."
Prior to joining Nintex, Waldo spent nine years at Microsoft most recently serving as senior director of cloud partner strategy within the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Group. He also has held key positions at Oracle and Siebel Systems.
