Network Automation’s VP of Sales and Marketing Martin Gadzinowski Jr. Recognized as a Channel Chief by Everything Channel’s CRN

Representing the who's who of channel management, the 2011 Channel Chiefs chosen by CRN head up the partner programs that solution providers depend on to run their business.

Los Angeles, February 22, 2011

Network Automation, the premier provider of IT and business process automation software AutoMate 8, today announced that Martin Gadzinowski Jr. has been named a Channel Chief by the Everything Channel's CRN. Channel Chiefs are leaders in creating effective channel programs for solution providers. They consistently defend, promote and execute effective channel partner programs and strategies.

Martin helped Network Automation increase its partner programs by 33% in 2010, a significant accomplishment as the company accredits 30% of its revenue to 3rd party solution providers. He worked closely with other members of the channel team including Dawn Willis, US Channel Sales Manager, and Frank Pacheco, International Channel Sales Manager, to effectively meet the needs of Network Automation’s expanding partner base. Under Martin’s guidance, Network Automation has forged strong channel partnerships with companies including The CBORD Group, GlobalSCAPE, GrowTechnology, and QBS.

This year's Channel Chiefs were chosen by Everything Channel editorial on criteria including policy and program innovations made during the past year, the amount of revenue their company generates through partners, their willingness to speak out publicly on behalf of the channel, and the number of years they have dedicated to channel activities.

"Empowering channel partners to easily and effectively integrate our platform, while ensuring they receive the support and technical training needed is critical to our business," said Gary Bishop, CEO, Network Automation. "We congratulate Martin and the team on this outstanding accolade from CRN."

"Being named a Channel Chief is one of the most prestigious honors in the IT industry. This year’s Channel Chiefs offer tremendous insight into the who’s who of the Channel," said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, Everything Channel. "Top channel executives consistently ensure that the Channel’s voice is heard when strategic decisions are being made and continually nurture mutually profitable relationships. We applaud this year's Channel Chiefs for their successful partner programs and strategies."
