REDWOOD CITY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#ASM–Anomali, the leader in modernizing and scaling security operations, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized Chris Peterson, Vice President of Worldwide Partnerships, on its 2023 Channel Chiefs list. Every year, this list honors the IT channel executives who work tirelessly to advance the channel agenda and deliver successful channel partner programs and strategies.

Peterson has spent more than 25 years building and leading channel sales programs at top enterprise cybersecurity companies. Before joining Anomali in 2021, he served as Vice President of Global Partnerships at Tenable, where he was responsible for developing and implementing partner programs that contributed to the company’s successful IPO in 2018. In addition to this year’s recognition, Peterson has been named a CRN Channel Chief several other times during his career, executed numerous 5-Star rated Partner Programs for multiple years, and is recognized as an industry thought leader in his professional field.

Over the past 12 months, under Peterson’s leadership, Anomali introduced the Anomali Resilience Partner Program to support the company’s move to a channel-first strategy and to improve partner-retained margins. Anomali also expanded its channel-dedicated field team and debuted the Platinum Elite Technical Certification Program, a new technical enablement certification program that provides partners’ engineers with access to the same technical curriculum available to Anomali field and customer success engineers, regardless of their current partner level.

“I am very fortunate to have a high performing, expert team, who consistently exceeds expectations on behalf of our partners. Over the past year, Anomali has significantly increased its channel engagement, leading to 3X growth in our channel-initiated pipeline. As a channel-first company, Anomali is committed to enabling our partners to help thousands of organizations more efficiently and effectively defend their businesses from the latest cyber adversaries,” Peterson said.
