2013 Women of the Channel
CRN’s annual list recognizes nearly 300 female executives across vendor channel organizations, distributors and solution providers for their accomplishments over the past year, and the far-reaching impact they are having on the technology industry going forward. This year’s Women of the Channel were chosen by the editors of CRN based on their achievements as executives and the amount of influence they wield over the technology channel.
Each year, CRN's "Women Of The Channel” list recognizes female executives across vendors’ channel organizations, distributors, and solution providers who epitomize success within the IT channel. These women represent a growing trend in the channel to empower women to succeed in what was once a male-dominated industry.

CRN’s 18th annual Solution Provider 500 list ranks the top solution providers in North America. Featuring the highest producing value-added resellers, integrators and solution providers in the IT channel, the Solution Provider 500 list considers earnings from hardware sales, software sales and managed IT services. This year, IPM ranked 476 on the list.
