At IGEL we like to say that our Technology Evangelist Jeff Kalberg bleeds IGEL yellow. Jeff is a brilliant mastermind in helping IGEL’s channel partners move customers past hurdles that can slow VDI adoption. He is passionate about VDI and IGEL, and he brings this commitment, 100%, every day!
Until now, Jeff has been a bit of an unsung hero in the IT channel. That changes today with CRN® naming Jeff to its 2017 list of “100 People You Don’t Know But Should.” After talking to solution providers and industry executives CRN created the list of channel management professionals who work under-the-radar, tirelessly working to support the IT channel.
Tirelessly is an apt description of Jeff, who leads partner training sessions and speaks at partner and customer events more than 50 times a year! After 35 years in the IT industry, Jeff knows what IGEL’s endpoint security and optimization software can do to streamline IT operations and support secure VDI. Importantly, his experience also plays in being able to develop channel solutions and solve problems so VDI adoption looks doable to the customer.
This powerhouse combination is why Jeff has been a key contributor in IGEL achieving an 890% increase in software sales for the first half of 2017, and 156% growth worldwide.
We’re fortunate to have Jeff on our team at IGEL and delighted his contributions to the channel are getting the public recognition he deserves.
The 2017 list of “100 People You Don’t Know But Should” will be featured in the October issue of CRN and can be viewed online at www.crn.com/100people.
