ISLANDIA, N.Y., July 26, 2010 – CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced that Toni Clayton-Hine and Tracy Balent-Hamrac have again been recognized by Everything Channel’s CRN Magazine as two of the top Women of the Channel. CRN’s annual list recognizes female executives across vendors’ channel organizations, distributors and solution providers for their accomplishments over the past year and the far-reaching impact they are having on the technology industry going forward.
This year’s Women of the Channel were chosen by the editors of CRN magazine based on their achievements as executives and the amount of influence they wield over the technology channel.
