The CRN editorial team, assessing feedback from solution providers and other industry executives, compiles this annual list to celebrate under-the-radar channel management team members from the industry’s top vendors and distributors. Those selected have worked tirelessly to create, promote and manage programs and policies that support and advance the IT channel.
Portnowitz, a 2005 graduate from the University of Florida, joined Star2Star in 2013. Since joining the company, his duties have expanded to include virtually all aspects of Star2Star’s marketing efforts.
“We’re thrilled that David has received this recognition,” said Michelle Accardi, Star2Star’s Chief Operating Officer. “David hit the ground running and has done a remarkable job expanding both our own and our Channel Partners’ marketing efforts,” she continued.
“There are a number of people who work behind the scenes in the channel whose efforts do not often receive widespread attention, although they truly help to hold up the entire industry and make it the thriving, smoothly functioning ecosystem that it is,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “We are pleased to shine a spotlight on these individuals with CRN’s 2016 list of 100 People You Don’t Know But Should list and to honor their important work, which quietly underpins the infrastructure of the IT channel and allows the community to advance as a whole.”
The 2016 list of 100 People You Don’t Know But Should will be featured in the October issue of CRN and can be viewed online at www.crn.com/100people.
