Intermec, Inc. announced that Scott Anderson has been named one of CRN's 2012 Channel Chiefs. This prestigious list of the most influential and powerful leaders in the IT channel recognizes those executives directly responsible for driving channel sales and growth within their organization, while evangelizing and defending the importance of the channel throughout the entire IT Industry.
Anderson, whose entire 30+ year career has been focused on channel sales efforts, has been instrumental in transforming Intermec's channel program since he joined the company in 2009. Overseeing the global launch of Intermec's PartnerNet program in 2010, Anderson's leadership has led to a robust partner program of more than 6,000 innovative businesses worldwide.
"The 2012 Channel Chiefs list recognizes vendor executives dedicated to driving channel programs in the IT marketplace," said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, UBM Channel. "Our annual Channel Chiefs issue is a must-read for IT solution providers evaluating new vendors or looking to expand solution offerings. These are the people, the products and the programs that any savvy solution provider needs to know. We congratulate this year's Channel Chiefs for their stellar record of business innovation and applaud them for their continued dedication to the partner community."
In 2011, Anderson's accomplishments include driving continued revenue growth across all Intermec product categories, overseeing the channel sales integration of Intermec and Vocollect, and leading the implementation of Intermec's global "Top Runner" program, an effort to further ease doing business with Intermec for VARs.
"It's a true honor to be named a 'Channel Chief' again this year as it demonstrates Intermec's commitment to our strong network of channel partners, VARs and ISVs," said Anderson. "I look forward to increased momentum in 2012, as we continue to drive predictability, profitability and growth for our partner community."
For the 10th consecutive year, Channel Chiefs were selected by the CRN editorial team based on channel experience, program innovations, channel-driven revenue, and public support for the importance of IT Channel Sales. The 2012 Channel Chiefs list is featured in the February issue of CRN Magazine and will be featured online at www.crn.com.
