A good channel boss will go above and beyond for their partners, fighting their corner within the vendor they work with, treating them as an extension of their own business, and generally helping them grow and prosper in any way they can.
If you know of a channel chief who's gone the extra mile for your firm over the last 12 months, please nominate them for our ‘Channel Chief of the Year' category for this year's CRN Channel Awards.
This is a brand new category for the awards, and we're relying on you, our audience, to tell us who should you think deserves to win it.
There is no set criteria, although endorsements must come from staff at resellers, MSPs, consultancies, distributors or other firms operating in the vendor in question's partner channel.
In a nutshell, we are looking for around 250 words (maximum) on why you are nominating the person, what they have done for the channel, why they are such a good channel chief, and a personal anecdotes you wish to supply about your experience with them as a partner.
