Multiple Egnyte Executives Named to 2023 CRN Channel Chiefs

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 6, 2023

Egnyte, the secure platform for content collaboration and governance, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized the following executives on its 2023 Channel Chiefs list:

  • Johnna Bowley, Vice President of Global Partner Sales
  • Charles “Chip” Bieler, Senior Channel Director, MSP Sales
  • Eric Anthony, Director of Partner Activation and Engagement

Every year, the CRN Channel Chiefs honor the IT channel executives who work tirelessly to advance the channel agenda and deliver successful channel partner programs and strategies.

Bowley joined Egnyte in 2022 to lead the global partner organization with a focus on expanding the company’s channel ecosystem and helping transform its sales and go-to-market business model to a channel-first company. Together with Anthony, Bieler, and the rest of the channel team, Egnyte’s program grew by more than 50 percent year over year in 2022. The company also introduced dedicated partner pricing and packages last year, in addition to enhancements to its partner portal and enablement solutions.

“We are honored that Johnna, Chip, and Eric’s expertise and leadership are being recognized by CRN,” said Stan Hansen, Chief Revenue Officer at Egnyte. “2022 marked a record-breaking year for Egnyte’s business thanks in large part to our channel partners. As we look to 2023 and beyond, we are excited about the growth opportunities that we offer our partners. Egnyte’s significant investment in the channel represents our confidence in their critical role in our success moving forward.”

The Channel Chiefs are selected by CRN’s editorial staff based on their record of business innovation and dedication to the partner community. They represent the top IT executives responsible for building a robust channel ecosystem.

“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.”
