Every year around the beginning of May, CRN releases their highly-anticipated Women of the Channel List. And every year, more and more women around the world—and from Cisco—are recognized for their channel expertise and vision.

This year’s list is not only the largest yet, but the number of Cisco leaders who were named to CRN’s 2022 Women of the Channel list is the most ever at 38! I am incredibly proud and humbled to have so many amazing women leaders as colleagues and friends.

Clearly, Cisco is well represented this year, so let’s take a look at who’s on the list.

First, I’d like to extend a big congratulations to Alexandra Zagury, Vice President, Partner Managed Services and aaS Sales; Julia Chen, Vice President, Global Partner Transformation; and Jose van Dijk, Vice President, Partner Performance and Operations; for being named to CRN’s Power 100 List. This distinction is a subset of the CRN Women of the Channel List and is awarded to female executives whose insights, vision, and influence help propel the channel forward. And there is no doubt these three great leaders are pure Channel Power!

Recognition like this is not possible without our partners and our leaders who are extremely committed to the Cisco partner community. Our partners’ success drives us to be bold, innovate, listen to your feedback, and most importantly make a positive impact with our customers.

2022 Women of the Channel

In addition to the leaders named to the Power 100 List, another 35 Cisco colleagues made CRN’s 2022 Women of the Channel List.

These 38 women represent some of the best and brightest when it comes to channel thought leadership, yet they represent only a fraction of the many other women and men across Cisco who are committed to our partners’ success.

I´m humbled and blessed to be part of such a powerful and diverse team. Congratulations again to our Cisco women of the channel leaders. Please join me in celebrating with them in the comments below and on social media! #WOTC22
