SAN FRANCISCO, May 9, 2022 – IGEL, provider of the managed endpoint operating system for secure access to any digital workspace, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Lara Maier, Director of Distribution, EMEA Region; Divya Saggar, Director, IGEL Ready; and Janice Savage, Director, North America Channel Sales, to its 2022 Women of the Channel list.
Published annually, 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.
“We are proud to see Lara, Divya and Janice honored by CRN for their dedication to helping our partners achieve go-to-market success with IGEL,” said Balaji Subramanian, Senior Vice President and Global Channel Chief, IGEL. “As a 100% channel-focused company, IGEL is committed to providing our partners with tools and resources they need to grow and sustain their businesses, while meeting the evolving demands of today’s work-from-anywhere environments, and we are grateful to these three executive for their contributions and the positive impact they are making for our partners each and every day.”
Innovative strategies for helping partners across the globe to achieve success
As Director of Distribution for the EMEA region, Maier is focused on building strong alliances between IGEL, its distribution partners and its channel partners. Over the last 12 months, her key accomplishments have been to engage distributors in successfully aligning their business and go-to-market strategies with IGEL.
In 2020, the launch of IGEL Ready, IGEL’s flagship technology partner program, transformed and innovated how technology partners engage and jointly go to market with IGEL. During the past year, as Director for IGEL Ready, Saggar’s primary focus has been on operational improvements and enhancing the IGEL Ready partner experience; adding new relevant partnerships to the program and expanding the program to now include 100+ technology partners; and, cultivating partner marketing relationships with key IGEL Ready partners to enable joint go-to-market strategies.
In her role as Director of North America Channel Sales, Savage is currently working with her team to help partners complete the IGEL Services Specialization, which was launched in 2021. She also contributed to creating a new format for IGEL partner business plans, and is dedicated to enabling partners both on the technical and sales side, which has resulted in the growth of partners’ IGEL revenues.
“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.”
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.
