Recognizing Stars of the IT Industry: And the Winners Are…

November 28, 2011 at 12:20 pm PST

The movie industry has the Oscars, the music industry the Grammys, but what about the IT industry? How do we recognize the top performers, the stars, and those behind the scenes making the magic happen? One could argue that CRN’s Top 100 is about as close to a channel award shows as you can get, minus the red carpet designer gowns and tearful acceptance speeches.

This year’s CRN awards are out and we’re happy to report that several Cisco executives were recognized on the Top 100 list:

  • Rob Lloyd in the category of “Channel Advocates”
  • Edison Peres in the category of “Channel Sales Leaders”
  • Keith Goodwin in the category of “Channel Services Leaders”
  • Chuck Robbins in the category of “Channel Strategists”
  • John Chambers in the category of “Influential”

The awards were based on nominations from solution providers who rank executives based on a number of criteria: channel influence, effectiveness and visibility, as well as business and sales impact. CRN also factored in channel sales volume, channel investment and resources, channel advocacy and visibility, and performance in UBM Channel research projects with a panel of UBM Channel editors making the final ruling.

Thank you for voting for Cisco in these awards. We’re proud to see that a number of partners made it to the list as well and congratulate the winners.

Of course, what would an award be without an acceptance speech?
