“Once again, this year’s list gives well-deserved recognition to the IT Channel Chiefs who are dedicated to driving the channel agenda and advocating for the development of strong channel partnerships”
A panel of CRN editors selected these honorees based on their record of business innovation and dedication to the partner community. The 2023 Channel Chiefs represent the top IT executives responsible for building a robust channel ecosystem with innovative strategies, programs and partnerships.
With over 20 years of experience, Brian Stoner is a proven cybersecurity and channel sales leader. Stoner joined DTEX in June 2022 to transform the company’s channel program across all regions, supporting and engaging DTEX’s entire partner ecosystem of resellers, technical alliance partners, system integrators and managed security service providers (MSSPs). He quickly identified opportunities to increase channel engagement and drive significant growth, leading to the launch of the DTEX Systems Global Partner Program in December 2022. Under Stoner’s leadership, DTEX has seen its channel contribution grow an impressive 100% compared to 2021 and added over ten strategic partners.
“Insider risk is a white-hot area in cyber security today. The global shift to hybrid work, a rise in inflation, and mass layoffs driven by a looming recession have tested employee loyalty.” says Brian Stoner, Vice President, Worldwide Channel and Alliances, DTEX Systems. “Our InTERCEPT platform helps customers proactively understand changes in employee behavior and enhances their ability to intervene before a catastrophic event occurs. This is a huge opportunity for partners to deliver the enhanced security services and solutions customers require to manage this heightened risk.”
“Once again, this year’s list gives well-deserved recognition to the IT Channel Chiefs who are dedicated to driving the channel agenda and advocating for the development of strong channel partnerships,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “Under their exceptional leadership, influence, and innovation, the IT channel vendor community continues to deliver solutions and services that meet the rapidly evolving needs of their solution provider partners and their customers.”
