StorageCraft Technology Corporation announced today that its vice president of worldwide sales, Mike Kunz, has been named one of CRN’s 2015 Channel Chiefs.

The 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs have demonstrated their enduring support for the channel by consistently defending, promoting and executing effective channel partner programs and strategies.
