FRAMINGHAM, Mass., Sept. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In conjunction with the launch of the new subscription-based iPad app, CRN Tech News, UBM Channel's CRN today also launched hard-hitting, exclusive new research revealing the most underpaid and overpaid executives among the top 500 publicly-traded Solution Provider Companies in the IT Channel. Unlike anything else in the industry, the series is based on research conducted by CRN and Obermatt, an international financial research firm specializing in indexing pay-for-performance. Available exclusively to CRN Tech News users, the series will consist of a combination of articles, videos and slideshows that will feature:


  • The most overpaid executives in the Channel
  • The most underpaid executives in the Channel
  • An interview with Dr. Stern, CEO, Obermatt, to discuss research methodology
  • Public vs. private company compensation
  • Details on how executive compensation is determined

"The launch of CRN Tech News, our new app for iPad, extends our ability to offer the IT channel community valuable new research, investigative reports, and never-before-seen content, like the executive compensation study, designed to arm the channel community with meaningful industry information," said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, UBM Channel. "Our groundbreaking new research sheds a critical light on today's highest-profile IT Solution Provider executives and the evolution of their personal careers, as we continue to navigate a changing economy. The results may surprise readers and change perceptions among the channel community. It is this kind of quality editorial content users can expect from CRN Tech News as we remain committed to serving as the No. 1 resource for the channel community."

CRN Tech News
The CRN Tech news app was designed for road warriors who need access to mobile content and tools to better run their business, but also for investigative news fans interested in learning more about the IT channel's big picture. Each week, app subscribers will have access to in-depth reports exclusively from the CRN Tech News app.  These reports will zero in on key topics such as excessive channel CEO salaries, piracy in the data center, and an in-depth look at which vendors benefit most from federal funding.
