Jersey City, NJ, March 02, 2010 - Comodo today announced that Robert Schaffer, Managing Director, Global Channels, Comodo Group, has been named a 2010 Channel Chief by Everything Channel's CRN. Channel Chiefs are leaders in creating effective channel programs for solution providers. They consistently defend, promote and execute effective channel partner programs and strategies.
Over ten years' experience in the channel industry gives Schaffer the ability to effectively lead cross-functional teams through market fluctuations in large corporate and in small business environments.
For the eighth consecutive year the Channel Chiefs were chosen based by Everything Channel editorial on criteria including policy and program innovations made during the past year, the amount of revenue their company generates through partners, their willingness to speak out publicly on behalf of the channel, and the number of years they have dedicated to channel activities.
"As the economy starts to improve, channel partners will find that businesses large and small are still cautious about IT investments," said Schaffer. "Comodo's business model allows end users to start small and scale up quickly as IT needs grow. I'm honored to be leading a team that brings such a marketable product to our channel partners."
"Being named a Channel Chief is one of the most prestigious honors in the IT industry. This year's Channel Chiefs offers tremendous insight into the who's who of the Channel," said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, Everything Channel. "Top channel executives consistently ensure that the Channel's voice is heard when strategic decisions are being made and continually nurture mutually profitable relationships. We applaud the 2010 Channel Chiefs for their successful partner programs and strategies."
