WATERTOWN, MA, February 26, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Mimecast, the leading supplier of cloud-based email archiving, continuity and security for Microsoft Exchange and Office 365, today announced that its U.S. channels director, Sean Broderick, has been named one of CRN's 2014 Channel Chiefs. This prestigious list of the most powerful leaders in the IT channel recognizes those executives directly responsible for driving channel sales and growth within their organization, while evangelizing the importance of the channel throughout the entire IT industry.
Since joining Mimecast less than three years ago, Broderick has had a pivotal role in increasing the size of the company's U.S. partner base by 500 percent. Broderick has designed a channel program that provides full support to all of Mimecast's U.S. partners, helping them grow their customer bases and strengthen operations. It's with this strategy that Broderick and his team will continue to bolster Mimecast's current partner roster, with a focus on the legal and healthcare industries.
This year's Channel Chiefs were selected by the CRN editorial team based on channel experience, program innovations, channel-driven revenue and public support for the importance of IT channel sales. Based upon this criteria, Broderick has been chosen as a CRN Channel Chief for the second year in a row.
"We are pleased to highlight the many executives throughout the industry who work tirelessly to advance the standing of the channel community within their organizations," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "The CRN Channel Chief honorees lead, inspire and engage peers, and serve as valuable advocates to help ensure the health and longevity of the channel within the IT industry. We applaud their efforts and look forward to their continued success."
"I am honored by this recognition of the hard work by everyone at Mimecast. Our channel program has seen tremendous growth over the past year. We are very proud of what we have achieved in partnership with our channel for our customers," said Sean Broderick, U.S. channels director, Mimecast. "We've aided our partners in a number of new ways, including developing a program for the MSP community and equipping them with the tools and capabilities to self-provision and support Mimecast's unified email management technology within their client base. By continuing to offer the best possible email security, continuity and archiving solutions and channel program benefits, we look forward to attracting more partners over the next year."
