Information technology company Gigamon Inc. recently announced that Chief Marketing Officer Peter Finter has been named to the prestigious list of 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs.
The influential executives on this annual list represent the most powerful leaders in the information technology channel who hold responsibility for driving growth and revenue for their organizations through their channel partners. Individuals are selected for inclusion based on their record of channel accomplishments, standing in the industry, dedication to the partner community and plans for driving future business innovation and channel growth.
The 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs have demonstrated their enduring support for the channel by consistently defending, promoting and executing effective channel partner programs and strategies.
As Gigamon chief marketing officer, Finter is responsible for all corporate, channel and product marketing, including the recent launch of Gigamon’s updated partner program, a worldwide channel program that rewards and enables VAR partners through incentives and financial benefits, sales and technical certifications, sales enablement tools and access to marketing resources. In 2014, Finter facilitated the creation of Gigamon’s first partner training curriculum for sales and technical resources, designed to encourage the growth of Gigamon’s channels partners and their ability to offer support services to their customers. With global growth across the partner program, the company expanded its channel leadership in December with the appointment of Scott Sullivan as vice president of worldwide channel sales.
“Each year, our editors carefully vet an extensive group of highly accomplished channel executives to highlight those exemplary individuals who earn the mantle of CRN Channel Chief,” said Robert Faletra, CEO and The Channel Co. “These executives strive to advance the success and standing of the channel community within their organizations. The 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs lead by example and serve as valuable advocates to help ensure the health and longevity of the IT channel. We applaud their accomplishments and look forward to their continued success.”
