CRN Women of the Channel 2015

glaser-cheek-sandraCongratulations to Sandra Glaser Cheek, senior director of global partner strategy, programs and enablement at Extreme Networks, for making this year’s list of CRN’s Women of the Channel!

I invite you to check out Sandra’s listing on the site, in which she discusses her integral role in Extreme’s channel initiatives following the company’s acquisition of Enterasys in 2013. Her efforts ultimately helped shape the launch of the global, award-winning Extreme Partner Network (EPN), a program that was designed to help partners create new opportunities, increase profitability and close deals faster.

This year alone, Extreme’s innovative channel program has received a 5-Star rating in The Channel Company’s CRN 2015 Partner Program Guide. In addition to Sandra’s recognition as a leading woman of the channel, Bob Gault, EVP, worldwide sales, services and channels, was named one of the 50 Most Influential Leaders on CRN’s annual Channel Chiefs listing and one of the Top 50 Channel Influencers by The VAR Guy. With an award-winning leadership team and channel strategy, Extreme will continue to focus on the right partners for our continued transformation in 2015.
