DRAPER, UT – MAY 22, 2020 – StorageCraft®, whose mission is to protect all data and ensure its constant availability, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Jeannine Edwards, senior director of channel marketing, and Olivia Donnell, EMEA channel director, to its esteemed 2020 Women of the Channel list.

Recognizing the unique strengths, vision, and achievements of a select group of women, this prestigious, annual list acknowledges channel leaders who are blazing a trail for future generations. These women are from all areas of the IT ecosystem, including technology vendors, distributors, solution providers and other IT organizations.

CRN editors chose the list from a multitude of channel leadership applicants and selected the final honorees based on their professional accomplishments, thought leadership, demonstrated expertise, and ongoing dedication to the IT channel.

In addition to being named as one of CRN’s 2020 Women of the Channel, Edwards was also named to the 2020 Power 100 list, which features a select subset of extraordinary women who have inspired their peers through their thought leadership and tireless dedication to the advancement of their companies and the entire IT channel.

In 2019, Edwards spearheaded the channel roll-out of two innovative StorageCraft products: OneXafe® Solo™, a plug-and-protect appliance for enterprise class data protection at SMB pricing, as well as the next version of ShadowXafe™, which provides enhanced features for Managed Service Providers (MSPs).

Both additions to the StorageCraft product line make best-in-class business continuity available to all market segments via a single technology stack.

In Europe, Donnell and her team grew StorageCraft’s EMEA market during 2019 by focusing on providing channel partners exceptional service through strong, open and collaborative partnerships. In the field with channel partners most of the time, Donnell acts as a conduit for partner feedback, which is translated into new features, tools and campaigns that will help partners grow their businesses.
