WOBURN, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kaspersky
Lab
North America announced today that CRN®,
a brand of The
Channel Company
, has named the company’s vice president of channel,
Jason Stein, to its exclusive 2018 list of the 50 Most Influential
Channel Chiefs. This elite list of executives consists of channel
leaders that have demonstrated loyalty and ongoing support for the
channel by consistently promoting, defending, and executing outstanding
partner programs.

All Channel Chief honorees are selected by CRN’s editorial staff on the
basis of their professional achievements, standing in the industry,
dedication to the channel partner community, and strategies for driving
future growth and innovation. However, only 50 of these executives were
selected for the Most Influential list, which speaks to Stein’s
prominent role in guiding and shaping the IT channel.

The executives on this annual list are part of an elite group drawn from
the larger pool of Channel Chief honorees each year and represent the
cream of the IT channel crop—leaders who drive the channel agenda and
evangelize the importance of channel partnerships. This distinguished
group is recognized for outstanding achievement in driving growth and
revenue in their organization, as well as extraordinary leadership in
the channel as a whole.

In his role, Stein recognized the opportunity to further enhance the way
Kaspersky Lab North America supports its partners. He identified a need
for providing more knowledge and value propositions to partners to share
with their clients, which in turn has opened up new business
opportunities for the company. He has worked closely with his team to
implement and offer channel partners new structured trainings, built out
a digital subscription channel framework to meet the industry changes
within licensing, and focused on building relationships in the MSP
community to establish a new segment of the company’s channel partner
program.

services. I will continue to lead my team to focus beyond traditional
offerings to support our partners and their customers to provide not
only the best comprehensive security solutions on the market, but the
services and threat intelligence businesses need access to now and in
the future.”
