Carbon Black’s Colleen Grounds, Director of Channel Marketing, and Melanie Holterhoff, Channel Marketing Manager, have been named to CRN’s prestigious 2018 “Women of the Channel” list.
The women who comprise this annual list span the IT channel, representing vendors, distributors, solution providers and other organizations that figure prominently in the channel ecosystem. Each is recognized for her outstanding leadership, vision and unique role in driving channel growth and innovation.
CRN also named Colleen Grounds to its list of 2018 Power 100, an elite subset of its prestigious annual Women of the Channel list.
CRN’s editorial team selects Women of the Channel honorees based on their professional accomplishments, demonstrated expertise and ongoing dedication to the channel. The Power 100 belong to an exclusive group drawn from this larger list: women leaders whose vision and influence are key drivers of their companies’ success and help move the entire IT channel forward.
As the director of channel marketing, Colleen Grounds manages a series of critical tools and resources for partners such as the partner portal, enablement, communications, and channel content. As a result, Grounds has restructured the channel marketing team to support the company partner strategy and created new processes to make it easier for partners to do business with Carbon Black.
Melanie Holterhoff is the channel marketing manager at Carbon Black. She is responsible for creation of partner specific content, working directly with the product marketing team to create easy to use, quick reference materials for Carbon Black’s channel partners. Holterhoff built out strategic marketing plans with several national partners to drive pipeline and sales for Carbon Black.
