Selected by the CRN editorial team, the 2nd annual Rising Female Stars list features exceptional channel leadership candidates.

In addition to other MarCom tasks, Saign collaborates with the channel marketing team to ensure the StorageCraft website provides partners and prospective partners with the information and guidance they need to understand StorageCraft solutions and how they help solve data management, protection, and recovery challenges.
