HOUSTON, February 12, 2019 – Alert Logic, the leading provider of SIEMless Threat Management™, announced today that CRN® selected Christopher Rajiah, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Alliances and Partnerships, to its prestigious list of 2019 Channel Chiefs. The list recognizes top IT channel leaders who continually strive to drive growth and revenue in their organizations through their channel partners.
Each of the 2019 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated exceptional leadership, vision, and commitment to their channel partner programs. Channel Chief honorees are selected by CRN’s editorial staff as a result of their professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the channel partner community, and strategies for driving future growth and innovation.
As Senior Vice President of Worldwide Alliances and Partnerships, Rajiah has applied his 25 years of experience developing high-velocity sales and partnership strategies across global markets to scale Alert Logic’s growth and reach world-wide. In just under a year, Rajiah shaped a partner-first company approach, launched a new partner program and focused his teams on delivering a training and certification curriculum that strengthened collaboration between Alert Logic and its partners. Alert Logic partners are now empowered to support their customers’ cybersecurity needs at the right level for their increasingly complex and dynamic IT environments.
“Chris is extremely deserving of this industry recognition given the integral role he and his team have played to evolve and scale our channel program and put us on a path for long-term success,” said Bob Lyons, CEO, Alert Logic. “Our channel partners are invaluable to our business and under Chris’ leadership, they’ll have the tools and resources needed to grow their revenue and deliver a powerful combination of technology platform, security intelligence and experts to their customers.”
Under Rajiah’s leadership, the company launched the Alert Logic Partner Connect program, designed to enable a broader array of partner types to accelerate revenue while increasing the value they offer to their customers. The program has opened new routes to market for Alert Logic via strategic referral and alliance partners and deepened the company’s relationship with its growing reseller channels.
“This was an exceptional year for Alert Logic and its channel partners, and I’m thrilled to be recognized by CRN for how my team and I are helping partners unlock and accelerate revenue while at the same time enabling them to provide increased value to their customers,” said Rajiah. “Organizations, particularly those that are resource constrained and in the mid-market, struggle to secure cloud, hybrid and on-premises IT environments. With enhancements to our partner programs, businesses are able to obtain market-leading security solutions, comprehensive security services and the expertise they need from the channel community that already serves them.”
“The individuals on CRN’s 2019 Channel Chiefs list deserve special recognition for their contribution and support in the development of robust partner programs, innovative business strategies, and significant influence to the overall health of the IT channel,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “We applaud each Channel Chief’s remarkable record of accomplishments and look forward to following their continued success.”
The 2019 CRN Channel Chiefs list, including the 50 Most Influential Channel Chiefs, is featured online at www.crn.com/channelchiefs and will appear in the February 2019 issue of CRN.
