Woodcliff Lake, NJ — Feb 24, 2016 —
Catalogic Software, the leading provider of in-place copy data management, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Bill Simpson, Catalogic’s Vice President of Channel Sales, to its prestigious list of 2016 Channel Chiefs. This marks the 5th time that Mr. Simpson has achieved this important recognition. The executives on this annual list represent top leaders in the IT channel who excel at driving growth and revenue in their organizations through channel partners.
The award reflects the strength of the channel program that Mr. Simpson has moved swiftly to put in place. Mr. Simpson, who joined Catalogic in early January of this year, was selected for the top honor by CRN’s editorial staff on the basis of the program that he has established at Catalogic, which sells its software solutions exclusively through its channel partners.
“It’s a great honor to again be named a CRN Channel Chief,” commented Simpson. “I joined Catalogic primarily because I saw the opportunity to bring a tremendous solution to the channel. Catalogic ECX is synergistic to our partners’ existing products and services, allowing them to protect and grow their footprints in existing clients, while providing them with the necessary tools to more readily acquire new ones with a differentiated offering.”
Catalogic ECX was first launched last February and has experienced rapid growth and significant recognition in its first year on the market. As the premier software-defined data management platform, ECX allows enterprise IT teams to modernize their existing infrastructure to be more automated, efficient and responsive to the demands of their internal customers. For channel partners that sell enterprise storage, ECX is a complementary solution that can be deployed independently of a hardware purchase, and delivers differentiated value to the end user.
The CRN Channel Chief award follows a string of other honors that Catalogic has received recently. In recognition of the breakthrough innovations delivered with ECX, Catalogic has won the following major industry awards: CRN’s Tech Innovator Award, Tech Trailblazer for Storage, Network Products Guide Most Innovative Software product, Best in Biz Most Innovative Company, and NJBiz Business of the Year.
“We are excited to see Bill named as a CRN Channel Chief,” said Catalogic CEO, Ed Walsh. “This is a tremendous personal achievement for Bill, and reflects CRN’s recognition that he is putting in place a world-class channel program at Catalogic.”
"There are only a few channel guys that "get it," said Mike Piltoff, Senior Vice President, Champion Solutions. "Bill Simpson is one of them, making our relationship with Catalogic Software a true partnership."
The 2016 CRN Channel Chiefs list is featured in the February 2016 issue of CRN and online on CRN’s website.
