Enhance Technology today announced that Aaron Eskridge has been named a 2010 Channel Chief by the Everything Channel’s CRN. Channel Chiefs are leaders in creating effective channel programs for solution providers. They consistently defend, promote and execute effective channel partner programs and strategies.
Aaron Eskridge has been working for Enhance Technology since 1998 and is a committed employee that has earned respect among the VARs and Distributors that he supports making him a key player in the channel. In 2009, the world experienced the worst economic downturn of our generation. During that year, Aaron successfully negotiated distribution contracts and franchise agreement with Bell Micro products, Condre Storage, Ingram Micro distribution channel as well as creating a web presence with global Bell Microproducts locations. It is through his hard work, determination and devotion to building the reseller and distribution channel that Aaron Eskridge was chosen as the CRN Channel Chief for 2010.
For the eighth consecutive year the Channel Chiefs were chosen based by Everything Channel editorial on criteria including policy and program innovations made during the past year, the amount of revenue their company generates through partners, their willingness to speak out publicly on behalf of the channel, and the number of years they have dedicated to channel activities.
“To be elected as a Channel Chief is truly an honor for any individual or organization especially for Enhance Technology,” said David Lin, Product Manager of Enhance Technology. “It is the key to success for any business, manufacturers alike. By utilizing the channel distribution partner's network, you can truly build your customer base and branding through a network of distribution and resellers. For a manufacturer like Enhance Technology, it is essential that a good channel strategy and setup be in place to ensure continuous growth and sales number.”
“Being named a Channel Chief is one of the most prestigious honors in the IT industry.
