projector solutions, announced today that CRN®,
a brand of The
Channel Company
, named Betsy Larson, Vice President of Channel
Sales, and Richard Hutton, Senior Director of Channel Marketing, to its
prestigious list of 2019 Channel Chiefs. The top IT channel leaders
included on this list continually strive to drive growth and revenue in
their organization through their channel partners.

Each of the 2019 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated exceptional leadership,
vision, and commitment to their channel partner programs. Channel Chief
honorees are selected by CRN’s editorial staff as a result of their
professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the
channel partner community, and strategies for driving future growth and
innovation.

“The individuals on CRN’s 2019 Channel Chiefs list deserve special
recognition for their contribution and support in the development of
robust partner programs, innovative business strategies, and significant
influence to the overall health of the IT channel,” said Bob Skelley,
CEO of The Channel Company. “We applaud each Channel Chief’s remarkable
record of accomplishments and look forward to following their continued
success.”

everlasting change, we are able to continue to offer meaningful
solutions to our partners as well as their end-users through
understanding their needs and having the technology knowhow for driving
results.”

on developing relationships built on trust and mutual success. Her
approach continues to hinder on listening and understanding partners’
needs to enable NEC Display to quickly adjust to the evolving demands of
the channel to ensure success and growth. In the last year, she aided in
the development of NEC Display’s NECOne global program, which focuses on
making global selling easier than ever before. Larson’s approach and
expertise has also enabled NEC to strategically expand its program
through focusing on end-user verticals to aid reseller partners to

is that it is always evolving,” said Hutton. “In the year ahead, we’ll
continue to see partner employees transitioning to a new generation. The
vendors that adapt processes to address this change with social and
mobile centric communication devices and methods are the ones that will
be able to truly succeed and deliver.”

organization’s partner program in both size and geographic reach. For

portfolio in the last year. He has also expanded the solution offerings
NEC brings to the channel by introducing new products such as direct
view LED displays for top partners. Hutton’s focus continues to remain
on improving processes for partners in both pricing and service.
