Waltham, MA – Mimecast, the leading supplier of cloud-based email archiving, continuity and security for Microsoft Exchange and Office, announced today that Sean Broderick has been named one of UBM Tech Channel’s CRN 2013 Channel Chiefs. This prestigious list of the most influential and powerful leaders in the IT channel recognizes those executives directly responsible for driving channel sales and growth within their organization, while evangelizing and defending the importance of the channel throughout the entire IT Industry.
Mimecast’s cloud-based Unified Email Management (UEM) delivers email security, continuity and archiving solutions as a single, tightly integrated, service managed from a central, web-based administration console. This solution simplifies the complex world of email management by removing the need to deploy, integrate and manage multiple third party systems and provides users with unlimited support.
Over the past year, Mimecast has tripled the size of its U.S. partner base and has reached 97 percent current customer renewal rate. Mimecast has also experienced nearly 70 percent year-over-year growth in active partners as the company strives for a 100 percent North America channel focus within the next 16 months. The company offers the channel an innovative partner portal, which allows partners to track opportunities, manage their deal pipeline and renewals, train their staff and create marketing campaigns all from a central location to provide a single view into their business activity. Some of Mimecast’s channel partners include HP, NaviSite, Binary Tree, Softchoice, SHI, SoftwareONE, BearData Solutions, FusionStorm and KiZAN.
For over ten years, Channel Chiefs were selected by the CRN editorial team based on channel experience, program innovations, channel-driven revenue, and public support for the importance of IT Channel Sales.
“The 2013 Channel Chiefs list recognizes vendor executives dedicated to driving channel programs in the IT marketplace,” said Kelley Damore, Senior Vice President, Editorial Director, CRN. “Our annual Channel Chiefs issue is a must-read for IT solution providers evaluating new vendors or looking to expand solution offerings. These are the people, the products and the programs that any savvy solution provider needs to know. We congratulate this year’s Channel Chiefs for their stellar record of business innovation and applaud them for their continued dedication to the partner community.”
Selected by CRN's editorial staff, the 2013 Channel Chiefs list is featured in the February 25 issue of CRN Magazine and will be featured online at www.crn.com.
“Being recognized by CRN as a channel leader is an honor as we continue our goal of expanding Mimecast’s channel partner program over the next year,” said Sean Broderick, Director of Channels, Mimecast. “With Mimecast’s recent Series C funding, which has led to the expansion of the U.S. headquarters in Boston, as well as new offices in San Francisco, Chicago and Dallas, we can expect to double the channel personnel by as soon as next year.”
