Santa Clara, CA ― Centrify, the leader in securing hybrid enterprises through the power of identity services, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Nathan Adams, Centrify’s director of global channels, to its prestigious list of 2017 Channel Chiefs. The executives on this annual list represent top leaders in the IT channel who excel at driving growth and revenue in their organizations through channel partners.

Channel Chief honorees are selected by CRN’s editorial staff on the basis of their professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the channel partner community and strategies for driving future growth and innovation. Each of the 2017 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated loyalty and ongoing support for the IT channel by consistently promoting, defending and executing outstanding channel partner programs.

Since joining Centrify in 2014, Adams has implemented, managed and cultivated the Centrify Channel Partner Network (CCPN), leading the North America channel team to consistent year-over-year growth in partner generated revenues. In 2016, Nathan developed and launched a new partner portal (PRM), which was created as part of the continued evolution of Centrify’s channel partner experience. Major enhancements to deal registration reporting, lead sharing, access to certifications and ease of access to marketing and sales assets were implemented in phases, to ensure successful adoption by the partner community.

“The executives on our 2017 Channel Chiefs list have distinguished themselves by building strong partner programs, developing and executing effective business strategy and helping to advance the channel as a whole,” said Bob Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “They represent an extraordinary group of individuals who lead by example and serve as both invaluable advocates and innovators of the IT channel. We applaud their achievements and look forward to their successes in the coming year.”   

“With the rise of new mobile devices, technologies, applications and platforms, companies need a new approach to secure corporate data,” said Adams. “Centrify provides a single platform to secure each user’s access to apps and infrastructure through the power of identity services. Our growing channel ecosystem allows us to deliver these critical security solutions to a high-growth market.”
