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.

  • April Petty has increased face time with customers to better deliver information about SYNNEX solutions and overall value-add, giving SYNNEX both deeper and more widespread reach within its customer base, and resulting in increased sales across the SYNNEX portfolio. Petty also gives back to her community working through SYNNEX Share the Magic, March of Dimes, and SYNNEX F2F, the company's community for women in IT.

The executives 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 editors select the Women of the Channel honorees based on their professional accomplishments, demonstrated expertise and ongoing dedication to the IT channel.

  • Willa Flemate, during two decades with the company, has managed a sales team, interacted with partners and created solutions that are mutually beneficial to SYNNEX suppliers and integrators. She has strengthened SYNNEX' services offering to drive growth within the system integrator community. Her target growth areas in 2017 are security and surveillance, IoT, and purpose-built solutions around Software-as-a-Service.
  • Lisa Schroeder has helped double the size of SYNNEX' DMR business year-over-year through organic growth. Under her direction and with the help of her product management counterparts, her team has outpaced the competition with SYNNEX top vendor partners. She implements formal business and marketing plans for all direct-market resellers to ensure that the alignment of strategies meets mutually beneficial goals and increases resellers' customer satisfaction.
  • Sandi Stambaugh was responsible for aligning with crucial industry associations in expanding training and support offerings for application-based solutions in key vertical markets, helping SYNNEX integrators develop and deploy complex technology solutions. Stambaugh serves on the board of directors of the Digital Signage Federation to bring a voice to not only SYNNEX' and distribution's roles, but also to the channel's role in the advancement of digital signage and technology solutions.
  • Reyna Thompson has led the rapid expansion of SYNNEX' line card with key networking, security, unified communications and wireless LAN vendor partners. In 2016, SYNNEX combined these varied technologies into a cohesive program focused on seamless delivery of fully converged technology solutions. She established a structure that provides a clear path to secure and effective "Digital Innovation Adoption," while expanding expertise, sales tools, and third platform line card.

"Each of these women is a true leader within our company," said Peter Larocque, President, North America Technology Solutions, SYNNEX Corporation.
