For the third year in a row, WatchGuard has been honored at Channel Partner Insight’s 2021 Channel Innovation Awards. This year, Senior Vice President of Marketing Michelle Welch was named the “Security Channel Chief of Year.” This annual awards program celebrates the partners and vendors that have brought true value and innovation to the managed services market and made a real difference to their customers over the last 12 months.
Michelle’s recognition is well deserved: she has a keen understanding of partner challenges and aspirations, broad experience across the security market, operational acumen and a genuine desire to help channel partners succeed. One customer had this to say:
“As an established IT Solution Provider, I have worked with many vendors over the years and have seen a lot of product innovation, but very little channel innovation. Channel experience goes beyond basic discounting and training programs, and involves how products and services are procured from the vendor, resold to clients, and managed throughout their lifetime. Michelle and the team at WatchGuard have proven that they’re dedicated to both technology innovation and investment in improving partner experiences.” – Kevin Willette, President and CEO at Verus Corporation.
