-- CRN also Awards 5-Star Rating to Raritan's Channel Program --

SOMERSET, N.J., April 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Raritan – a leading provider of data center infrastructure management (DCIM) and rack power distribution solutions – announced today that Victoria Zona, Raritan's Channel Sales Director, has been named to CRN's list of the industry's top Channel Chiefs.  CRN also awarded five stars, the highest rating, to Raritan's partner program in the magazine's annual guide to the very best channel partner programs.

Channel Chief Award
The magazine's annual Channel Chiefs list consists of the most powerful IT channel leaders.  It recognizes those executives directly responsible for driving channel sales and growth within their organization, while evangelizing the importance of the channel throughout the entire IT Industry. 

The CRN editorial team selected Zona -- who is responsible for Raritan's channel partner program in the Americas -- based on her channel experience, program innovations, and public support for the importance of IT channel sales.  For the past 17 years Zona has managed and grown Raritan's channel partner program supporting the company's three data center businesses -- KVM Switch and remote console management, rack power distribution,  and DCIM software-- that focus on providing tools and processes for managing complex IT infrastructures and resources more efficiently. 

5-Star Channel Award
For the sixth consecutive year Raritan's Channel Program was awarded CRN's 5-Star rating.  The award recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.  In selecting 5-Star winners CRN took into account: investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.

"Congratulations to Vicki and her team for both awards," said John O'Shea, Senior Vice President at Vology, a Raritan partner.  "She is one of the most competent and committed channel chiefs in the business.  She has created a great program that has made partnering with Raritan beneficial and easy, and at the same time has helped advance the data center infrastructure management market."
