Code42, the Insider Risk Management (IRM) leader, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named channel industry veterans Melissa Caress and Sara Monaco, to its Women of the Channel list for 2022. This esteemed list honors the incredible accomplishments of female leaders in the IT channel. Those named on this annual list come from all corners of the IT channel — including vendors, distributors, and solution providers whose vision, expertise, and contributions make an impact on the industry every day.
By bringing innovative concepts, strategic business planning and comprehensive channel initiatives to life, these extraordinary women support partners and customers with exceptional leadership. CRN celebrates these women, who are so deserving of recognition, for their constant dedication to channel excellence.
Code42 is a channel-first organization, with its Accelerate Partner Program strategically contributing to its 2021 Annual Recurring Revenue growth of more than 125%. Caress and Monaco have played critical roles in Code42’s ongoing channel momentum as the company continues to take IRM mainstream through its award-winning Code42® Incydr™ product.
“The success we’ve achieved in growing our channel sales and program wouldn't be possible without the tireless dedication of Melissa and Sara,” said Faraz Siraj, vice president of channel sales at Code42. “Their work is pivotal to our ongoing growth as we deliver to the channel innovative Insider Risk Management solutions that protect company data – IP, source code and product plans – in line with how we work today in cloud-based, collaboration-focused work environments.”
Melissa Caress has been working in the channel for over 20 years. Her passion for channel marketing has helped her establish a strong network of partners within the channel, which have fueled the growth of Code42's Accelerate Partner Program. As national channel account manager, Caress works to expand Code42’s network of VAR partners and educate the company's sales team on best practices for working with the channel.
Sara Monaco has spent over ten years of her career in the channel with a sole focus on cybersecurity. Her experience as a sales rep working for a 100% channel company inspired her to switch positions to more closely build relationships with partners. As the northeast channel account manager, Monaco has increased engagement with both national and regional partners while also working closely with the sales and marketing teams to ensure success with the channel.
“We are proud to once again recognize the remarkable leaders on this year’s Women of the Channel list. Their influence, confidence, and diligence continue to accelerate channel success significantly,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “Their accomplishments will inspire others, and we look forward to witnessing their future contributions to the channel.”
Code42 continues to earn channel industry recognition. The company was recently named to CRN’s annual Security 100 list and 2022 Partner Program Guide, and Code42’s vice president of channel sales, Faraz Siraj, was named to CRN’s 2022 Channel Chiefs list.
CRN’s 2022 Women of the Channel list will be featured in the June issue of CRN Magazine and online at www.CRN.com/WOTC.
