StorageCraft is proud to announce that UBM Tech Channel’s CRN has recognized Mike Kunz, StorageCraft vice president of sales, as a 2013 Channel Chief. This is the fifth year running that CRN has recognized him.
Each year, CRN selects the top executives of channel management as Channel Chiefs by focusing on those committed to supporting and expanding channel partner business. Channel Chiefs are selected for their indefatigable efforts defending, promoting, and executing effective channel partner programs and strategies. StorageCraft is proud to once again have Mike Kunz counted among their ranks.
Mike’s focus at StorageCraft is on expanding their global reach by developing channel partnerships that focus on profitability for the channel partner. Mike’s efforts are also narrowed on creating innovative ways for partners to profit from StorageCraft solutions, including the StorageCraft MSP partner program, and by solidifying partnerships with hardware vendors like Kaseya in order to provide their solutions in useful hardware/software bundles.
“This year we focused on truly collaborating with our channel partners to deliver something they can use to meet their business needs,” Kunz said, “We try to make it as easy as possible for partners to work with us.”
Mike reported 30 percent growth in not only StorageCraft platinum partners but in overall partner base as well. He also mentioned that engagement with partners has grown and improved as StorageCraft continues to work toward promoting partners through joint case studies, guest blog posts, success stories and thorough engagement through social channels.
StorageCraft would like to thank CRN for recognizing Mike Kunz for his commitment to partner engagement, his help in increasing their exposure and business, as well as promoting the channel at large.
