Channel Chief honorees are chosen based on their professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the channel partner community, and strategies for driving future growth and innovation.

During the preceding year, each of the 2016 CRN Channel Chiefs has demonstrated loyalty and ongoing support for the IT channel by consistently promoting, defending, and executing outstanding channel partner programs. CRN recognized Bradbury for his role in driving growth and revenue opportunities for Intronis and its channel partners during 2015.
