Channel Chief honorees are selected by CRN’s editorial staff on the basis of their professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the channel partner community, and strategies for driving future growth and innovation.

We applaud each Channel Chief’s impressive record of accomplishments and look forward to their future successes.”

“I’m very proud to have once again been recognized by CRN as a Channel Chief and it perfectly reflects the direction Accedian is taking with its channel strategy,” said Sergio Bea, Vice President Global Enterprise and Channels, Accedian. “The coming months will see Accedian apply its expertise to the enterprise channel to allow its partners to introduce network and application performance as a service, and allow them to diagnose end-user experience issues in minutes, rather than days.”

Sergio continued: “This is a very exciting time for Accedian, but to make it a success, it requires flawless execution and an innovative program that can underscore the value Accedian is set to bring to the channel space in the near future. Given Accedian’s success in the telecoms industry, there’s no doubt we’ll see this carried through in the channel as we make this a priority for the months to come.”
