  • Leading channel publication recognizes StorageCraft’s Jeannine
    Edwards and Olivia Donnell
  • CRN chooses leaders who contribute significantly to the IT channel
  • Edwards receives additional honor: inclusion in CRN’s Power 100 List

DRAPER, Utah–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/WOTC?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#WOTClt;/agt;–StorageCraft®,
whose mission is to protect all data and ensure its constant
availability, today announced that CRN®,
a brand of The
Channel Company
, has named Jeannine Edwards, senior director of
channel marketing, and Olivia Donnell, EMEA channel director, to its
prestigious 2019 Women of the Channel list.

The leaders on this annual list are from all areas of the IT channel
ecosystem; they represent technology suppliers, distributors, solution
providers and other IT organizations. Each honoree is recognized for her
contributions to channel advocacy, channel growth and visionary
leadership.

Edwards also has the distinction of being named to CRN’s Power 100 list,
an elite subset of its prestigious Women of the Channel list.

CRN’s editorial team draws from a multitude of channel leadership
applicants to create the list and selects the final honorees based on
their professional accomplishments, demonstrated expertise and ongoing
dedication to the IT channel. The Power 100 belong to an exclusive group
of the overall list: women whose leadership and vision are key drivers
of their companies’ success and have had significant influence to move
the entire IT channel forward.

Edwards joined StorageCraft as senior director of channel marketing a
year ago, amid a changing solution-provider marketplace and much
innovation at StorageCraft. Jumping in immediately, she led the effort
to reinvent StorageCraft’s partner program and revamp the partner portal
to ensure that StorageCraft continues to meet the needs of its diverse
set of partners.

The resulting program, called the StorageCraft Partner Success Program,
represents the company’s complete portfolio of business continuity
offerings and supports the varied business models that solution
providers employ. Channel partners can build or expand their presence in
the business continuity category very easily and expect high
profitability thanks to this program.

Donnell, the EMEA channel director, spent last year establishing a solid
distribution layer across Europe, the Middle East and Africa, thereby
creating a springboard to accelerate StorageCraft’s channel business in
these regions. She also took responsibility of the EMEA channel team in
2018 and rolled out customized professional sales training for team
members.

This training centers on fostering team members’ understanding of what
channel partners need from a vendor and then concentrating on those
needs. Donnell’s efforts have resulted in additional partners trading
each quarter and triple-digit sales growth in StorageCraft cloud
products and services.
