LEUVEN, BELGIUM, February 7, 2022 – Datadobi, the global leader in unstructured data management software, is pleased to announce that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Paul Repice, VP of Sales Americas, to its 2022 Channel Chiefs list. CRN’s annual Channel Chiefs project identifies top IT channel vendor executives who continually demonstrate expertise, influence, and innovation in channel leadership.
A panel of CRN editors selected the honorees for their channel dedication, industry stature, and accomplishments as channel advocates. The 2022 Channel Chiefs are influential leaders who continue to shape the IT channel with innovative strategies, programs, and partnerships.
Paul Repice has more than 20 years of experience working in the technology sector, specializing in storage. Repice has worked at companies such as Xiotech, Compellent, and Hewlett Packard; he was most recently the VP of Sales at Tintri before joining Datadobi.
Since joining Datadobi in March of 2021, Paul has made channel growth one of his highest priorities. Paul has significantly expanded investment in channel-facing resources, doubling channel personnel in North America. Most recently Datadobi added 20-year industry veteran Charlie Collins to the arsenal of channel experts as the new Americas Channel Sales Director. As a result of all of these investments, organic channel pipeline growth and sales have both increased over 30% since last year.
“It is an honor to be recognized as a CRN Channel Chief. Since Datadobi’s inception, one of the company’s top priorities has been to help partners and end users harness the power of the data at their disposal,” said Repice, “Throughout the past few months, logo acquisition has accelerated and we’ve created quite the momentum with our channel partners. We look forward to continuing the path in 2022 and beyond to help today’s enterprise properly manage their unstructured data.”
“CRN’s 2022 Channel Chiefs recognition is given exclusively to the foremost channel executives who consistently design, promote, and execute effective partner programs and strategies,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “We’re thrilled to recognize the tireless work and unwavering commitment these honorees put into fostering outstanding business innovation and building strong partner programs to drive channel engagement and success.”
