LANDESK, a global leader in delivering user-centered IT solutions that solve business challenges across systems, security, mobility, asset and IT Service Management, announced today that Jim Kilgour has been named to the prestigious list of the 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs. The influential executives on this annual list represent the most powerful leaders in the IT channel who hold direct responsibility for driving growth and revenue for their organizations through their indirect channel partners. Individuals are selected for inclusion based on their track 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.
Kilgour led efforts to build a new partner portal, consolidating 15 separate websites into one so partners can easily access sales tools, marketing materials, training and deal registration. Kilgour also created new partner certification programs, which resulted in more than 5,800 completed certifications in 2014.
“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, The Channel Company. “These executives strive to advance the success and standing of the channel community within their organizations.
