SAN JOSE, CA – Jun 23, 2014 – /BackupReview.info/ — Nimble Storage (NYSE: NMBL), the flash storage solutions company, today announced that Kristin Carnes, director of worldwide channel sales, has been named to the 2014 CRN Women of the Channel, as well as the Power 100. The Women of the Channel is an annual list highlighting the accomplishments of female executives within vendor, distribution, and solution provider organizations, and the impact they are having on the advancement of the IT channel industry as a whole. This is the second consecutive year Carnes has been named to the Women of the Channel. Each year an elite set of women are also named to CRN’s Power 100 listing, which selects honorees based on achievements over the past year and how they’ve impacted the industry.
Carnes has more than sixteen years of experience in the channel and has been instrumental in expanding Nimble’s distribution strategy into new regions, such as Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, Malaysia and throughout EMEA. Under Kristin’s direction, Nimble launched a two-tier distribution model in North America, successfully transitioning 100 percent of all resellers to purchase through distribution. Additionally, Carnes led the effort to launch the Nimble Sales Professional (NSP) program, a self-paced, online course available to all resellers that is free-of-charge. To date, 1,200 individuals have been certified through the program. Carnes plans to broaden Nimble’s presence by expanding its distribution footprint in EMEA and deepening existing relationships with valued alliance partners, including Citrix, Oracle, CommVault, Microsoft, VMware, and Cisco.
“These female executives have risen in the ranks of their organizations and are leaving their indelible mark on the technology channel. We celebrate their many contributions and the varied ways in which they help solution providers grow and thrive every day,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “We congratulate the Women of the Channel, and look forward to their continued success.”
“It is an honor to be named amongst some of the most influential women on CRN’s Women of the Channel,” said Carnes. “Over the past year, our team has made a dedicated effort to focus on deeper engagement and enablement of channel partners in the United States, as well as channel recruitment internationally to enhance our level of training and support. Our channel-centric model continues to be a key driver of Nimble’s growth, and as a result we now have more than 1,000 partners worldwide.”
