Cohesity today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Bill Lipsin to its 2020 list of Channel Chiefs. This annual list recognizes the top vendor executives who continually demonstrate exemplary leadership, influence, innovation, and growth for the IT channel. This marks the tenth time that Lipsin, vice president of global channel sales at Cohesity, has been recognized as a CRN Channel Chief. Additionally, this recognition reflects Lipsin’s deep and proven experience in building and leading results-driven programs and organizations that drive customer value and market leadership.
Lipsin brings more than 25 years of experience in enterprise channel programs for data center, cloud, and data management markets. He has been instrumental in expanding Cohesity’s channel partner program to help partners increase profitability and offer greater value to customers. In tandem with partners globally, Cohesity is making it dramatically easier for organizations to back up, manage, and extract insights from their data.
“I am honored to be recognized by CRN in their Channel Chief category. I joined Cohesity because of its breakthrough data management solutions and because of its world-class global channel partners,” said Lipsin. “The Cohesity channel has never been stronger; in our last fiscal year, almost 70 percent of our active channel partners grew their business over 100 percent and many partners grew their business in excess of 200 percent.”
According to CRN, the 2020 Channel Chiefs have shown outstanding commitment, an ability to lead, and a passion for progress within the channel through their partner programs. The Channel Chief honorees were chosen by the CRN editorial staff for their dedication, industry prestige, and exceptional accomplishments in driving the channel agenda and evangelizing the importance of channel partnerships.
“The IT channel is undergoing constant evolution to meet customer demands and changing business environments,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s Channel Chiefs work tirelessly, leading the industry forward through superior partner programs and strategies with a focus on helping solution providers transform and grow. Our team here at The Channel Company congratulates these outstanding individuals for their dedication to the channel.”

Cohesity ushers in a new era in data management that solves a critical challenge facing businesses today: mass data fragmentation. The vast majority of enterprise data — backups, archives, file shares, object stores, and data used for dev/test and analytics — sits in fragmented infrastructure silos that make it hard to protect, expensive to manage, and difficult to analyze. Cohesity consolidates silos onto one web-scale platform, spanning on-premises, cloud, and the edge, and uniquely empowers organizations to run apps on that platform — making it easier than ever to back up and extract insights from data. Cohesity is a 2019 CNBC Disruptor and was named a Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum. Visit our website and blog, follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn and like us on Facebook.
