NATICK, Mass., Feb. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Nasuni®, a provider of Cloud NAS to distributed organizations, that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Warren Mead, vice president of channel sales and business development, to its prestigious list of 2016 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 2016 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated loyalty and ongoing support for the IT channel by consistently promoting, defending and executing outstanding channel partner programs.
Because Nasuni sells 100 percent through the channel, channel chief is a key position, and Mead has grown the partner program enormously. In 2015, Mead achieved the following:
- Nasuni named a Microsoft Managed Azure ISV for FY '16;
- More than 200 percent growth in channel sourced revenue over the previous year; and
- More than 445 percent growth in channel deal registration compared to 2014.
"We are honored to present the 2016 lineup of CRN Channel Chiefs, comprised of outstanding executives who move our entire industry forward by cultivating exemplary partner programs and executing cutting-edge business strategy," said Robert Faletra, CEO, 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 incredible strides and look forward to following their accomplishments in the coming year."
"Warren has done a tremendous job managing and growing our channel program which, as a 100 percent channel organization, is absolutely critical to our success," said Andres Rodriguez, CEO of Nasuni. "We give our channel partners a complete cloud-based solution that addresses the massive pain enterprises experience with exponential file growth. And as a subscription service, our partners don't only see revenue from the initial sale, but they will enjoy an ever growing annual revenue stream, which increases as their customers add capacity."
