Sarah Heibult, Laura Hermans, Janice Savage, and Erin Ware recognized for dedication to helping partners successfully go-to-market with IGEL

SAN FRANCISCO, May 8, 2023 —  IGEL, provider of the managed endpoint operating system for secure access to any digital workspace, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Sarah Heibult, Senior Channel Sales Manager, Southwest; Laura Hermans, Sales and Operations Manager; Janice Savage, Director, NA Channel Sales; and Erin Ware, Director of Distribution for North America, to its 2023 Women of the Channel list.

Published annually, the CRN Women of the Channel list recognizes women from vendor, distributor, and solution provider organizations whose expertise and vision are leaving a noticeable and commendable mark on the technology industry.

“We are ecstatic to announce this year’s honorees and shine a light on these women for their significant achievements, knowing that what they’ve accomplished has paved the way for continued success within the IT channel,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The channel is stronger because of them, and we look forward to seeing what they do next.”

Achieving partner success through creativity, strategic thinking, and leadership

The CRN 2023 Women of the Channel honorees bring their creativity, strategic thinking, and leadership to bear in a variety of roles and responsibilities, but all are turning their unique talents toward driving success for their partners and customers.

During the past year, Sarah Heibult helped refine established processes to ensure equity and success for all partners in the IGEL ecosystem by identifying opportunities in untapped markets; initiating conversations with key stakeholders on how IGEL can be included in established solution offerings; and, leveraging internal tools and data to provide guidance for partner enablement.

Laura Hermans worked to advance IGEL’s channel business by leveraging her project management skills to align IGEL’s global channel sales and marketing teams through shared partner success tools and resources, including a dashboard for tracking partner KPIs.

Dedicated to enabling IGEL partners on both the sales and the technical side, Janice Savage has been focused on driving revenue growth for both IGEL and its partners through strategic account mapping, which has laid the groundwork to establish more meaningful relationships for IGEL across the channel and increase the number of net new logos being added each year.

Erin Ware excels in driving go-to-market success for IGEL’s distribution partners, and working together with IGEL’s channel operations team, she leveraged reporting and analytics to increase visibility into performance metrics and improve access to business-building tools and resources.

“IGEL is committed to helping our channel partners grow and sustain their businesses by meeting the evolving demands of today’s hybrid and remote work environments for solutions that provide a secure, productive and collaborative work environment,” said Phil Eden, Vice President of North America Channel Sales, IGEL “We are incredibly proud to see Sarah, Laura, Janice and Erin recognized for the tremendous impact they are having on the go-to-market success of our partners.”

The 2023 Women of the Channel list will be featured in the June issue of CRN Magazine, with online coverage starting May 8 at
