Mike Kunz makes Everything Channel’s CRN Channel Chief list for third straight year

DRAPER, Utah, Feb. 22, 2011 –(EON: Enhanced Online News)– StorageCraft Technology Corporation, a provider of innovative disk-based backup, disaster recovery, system migration and data protection solutions for servers, desktops and laptops, today announced that Everything Channel’s CRN is recognizing Mike Kunz, StorageCraft® vice president of sales, as a 2011 Channel Chief. This is the third year in a row that Kunz has been named to the list.

Each year CRN recognizes Channel Chiefs who are leaders in creating effective channel programs for solution providers. In addition, Channel Chiefs consistently defend, promote and execute effective channel partner programs and strategies.

CRN singled out Kunz because StorageCraft is growing its Managed Service Provider (MSP) partner program and emphasizing its commitment to its channel programs by doubling StorageCraft’s channel team.

“Even though it’s the third year in a row that my name is on this list, it’s really about StorageCraft’s ongoing dedication to our reseller partners,” said Kunz. “StorageCraft’s business model is built around the idea that if our partners succeed, we succeed. Our loyalty and commitment will remain with the channel.”

More than 95% of StorageCraft sales are indirect and it has two partner programs designed to meet the needs of its reseller partners: the StorageCraft Reseller Partner Program and the StorageCraft MSP Partner Program. Both programs require no cost to join and provide resellers with access to the award-winning ShadowProtect® line of disk-based backup and disaster recovery software solutions.

The CRN editorial staff chose this year’s Channel Chiefs based on policy and program innovations they made in 2010, the amount of revenue their companies generate through channel sales, their willingness to speak out publicly on behalf of the channel, and the number of years they’ve dedicated to channel activities.

“The CRN Channel Chiefs list is a comprehensive listing of the leading channel executives at vendor organizations and their accomplishments,” said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, Everything Channel. “This prestigious list serves as a valuable must-read for solution providers looking to get to right contacts within the vendor community. We applaud this year’s Channel Chiefs for their successful partner programs and strategies.”
