The executives who comprise this annual list by CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, span the IT channel, representing vendors, distributors, solution providers and other organizations that figure prominently in the channel ecosystem. Each is recognized for her outstanding leadership, vision and unique role in driving channel growth and innovation.
Antony is an industry veteran who has led Arcserve global product planning, pricing strategy, technical communications and competitive intelligence since 2016.

She also helped re-architect the Arcserve Partner portal, which includes one-click partner access to education and rewards programs.
