Karsan Receives Industry Honor for Third Consecutive Year
February 21, 2012
Danvers, Mass. — February 21, 2012 – VaultLogix, the only online backup provider focused on delivering a solution customized to each business customer’s specific data backup needs, today announced that Zak Karsan, Vice President of Business Development at VaultLogix, has been named one of CRN’s 2012 Channel Chiefs. This prestigious list of the most influential and powerful leaders in the IT channel recognizes those executives directly responsible for driving channel sales and growth within their organization, while evangelizing and defending the importance of the channel throughout the entire IT Industry.
Over the past year, Karsan has continued to drive extraordinary growth into the VaultLogix channel program, which provides resellers the opportunity to add online backup to a managed service platform as an additional, high-margin revenue stream for their business. In particular, Karsan has established a strategic alliance platform that has enabled VautlLogix’ Internet Vault Advantage solution to lead the industry in integrations with the Remote Monitoring & Management (RMM) and Professional Services Automation (PSA) solutions, which further eases the implementation and management of the VaultLogix online backup solution into a reseller’s operations.
For the tenth consecutive year, Channel Chiefs were selected by the CRN editorial team based on channel experience, program innovations, channel-driven revenue, and public support for the importance of IT Channel Sales.
“Once again our channel program experienced tremendous growth,” Said Tim Hannibal, CEO of VaultLogix. “Zak’s leadership in building strong alliances throughout the MSP industry contributes significantly to easing the process of adding our offsite backup solution to an MSP’s services mix. Combined with our existing capabilities that provide a VAR or MSP with a turnkey online backup service, VaultLogix is positioned to continue adding partnerships in the channel community.”
“The 2012 Channel Chiefs list recognizes vendor executives dedicated to driving channel programs in the IT marketplace,” said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, UBM Channel. “Our annual Channel Chiefs issue is a must-read for IT solution providers evaluating new vendors or looking to expand solution offerings. These are the people, the products and the programs that any savvy solution provider needs to know. We congratulate this year’s Channel Chiefs for their stellar record of business innovation and applaud them for their continued dedication to the partner community.”
Selected by CRN’s editorial staff, the 2012 Channel Chiefs list is featured in the February issue of CRN Magazine and will be featured online at www.crn.com.
