You’ve heard EMC talk a lot about how we and our partners are leading the IT transformation (something we’re very proud of!). Yet, we don’t talk often enough about the people who drive that revolution. Harry Truman said, “Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.” So it is with great pleasure that I call out recent accolades for five EMC leaders who are steering the most wide-reaching and exciting shift our industry has ever seen.


Jennifer Axt, Julie Christiansen, Anna Dorcey, Nefeli Keebaugh, and Patty Scire have been named to CRN’s 2015 Women of the Channel, an annual list that honors outstanding female executives across the channel for their accomplishments in, and far-reaching impacts on, the technology industry. Additionally, Julie, Anna, and Patty have earned a spot on the elite POWER 100 list, a subset of Women of the Channel that recognizes individuals who have reached the highest levels of success in the IT channel.


It is my honor to work with these channel power players every day, and I see firsthand that Jennifer, Julie, Anna, Nefeli, and Patty
are those skillful leaders seizing opportunities to transform. Their work in collaboration with our Business Partner community is evident everywhere I look – customers achieving incredible business outcomes because of innovation technology approaches and solutions. I know they will continue to redefine possibilities – for you, our Partners; for EMC, and for the industry at-large.
