CRN honors Microsoft in 2019 Women of the Channel and Power 100 lists

With an extensive partner ecosystem around the world, Microsoft strives to be the best organization to help its partners create new opportunities, grow revenue and increase profitability. Dedicating our efforts to help this ecosystem grow and thrive is at the core of our mission, and we’re honored to partner with so many amazing companies that have the same shared vision to empower people to achieve more around the world.

Yesterday, CRN, Computer Reseller News part of the Channel Company, announced that it has named seven Microsoft executives to its 2019 Women of the Channel list. We are honored to be represented on this list, and the recognition is a testament to Microsoft’s continued focus on building its bench of strong women leaders. We are also incredibly proud to stand alongside the many other women recognized on this list, including several channel leaders in our partner ecosystem.

Among those selected to the 2019 Women of the Channel list from Microsoft are: Gavriella Schuster, CVP WW One Commercial Partner; Gretchen O’Hara, VP US One Commercial Partner; Penny Philpott, VP WW One Commercial Partner;  Leslie Pickering, Director US Partner Technology; Alyssa Fitzpatrick, GM WW One Commercial Partner; Jo Amato-Tuck, WW Partner Development Manager and Laurie Viault, WW Partner Program Manager. I am thrilled that CRN has also named Gavriella Schuster, Penny Philpott and me to its list of 2019 Power 100, a prestigious list of leaders among the Women of the Channel list.

CRN’s editorial team selects the final honorees based on their professional accomplishments, demonstrated expertise, and ongoing dedication to the IT channel. The Power 100 belong to an exclusive group of the overall list, women whose leadership and vision are key drivers of their companies’ success and have had significant influence to move the entire IT channel forward.

The 2019 Women of the Channel and Power 100 lists will be featured in the June issue of CRN Magazine and online at

I look forward to seeing all of these women and all of you at the Women’s Luncheon at Microsoft Inspire 2019. If you haven’t registered for Inspire yet from July 14-18 in Las Vegas, please do so today!
