Fuze, the leading cloud-based communications provider for the modern global enterprise, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Fuze’s Timothy Puccio to its 2021 Channel Chiefs list. The annual list recognizes top-performing IT channel vendor executives who continually demonstrate outstanding leadership, influence, innovation, and growth.

Timothy Puccio joined Fuze in 2019 as Vice President, Global Channels & Alliances at Fuze, with the primary goal of aligning channel objectives across multiple departments, including channel management, operations, marketing, and sales. In the past two years, Tim has grown Fuze’s channel program across the industry and in January 2021 was promoted to Channel Chief.

“This honor is a reflection of Tim’s steadfast dedication not only to Fuze’s channel program, but to the overall success of the business,” said Brian Day, CEO of Fuze. “During such a turbulent year, our partner engagement became even more critical to support the evolving communications platform needs of the enterprise. Tim’s ability to expand and strengthen Fuze’s channel program is a testament to the dedicated work of the entire team as we empower our partners with a critical enterprise-grade cloud platform that enables their customers to communicate and collaborate from any location or device.”

The 2021 Channel Chiefs recognize prominent leaders who have influenced the IT channel with cutting-edge strategies, programs and partnerships. All honorees are selected by CRN’s editorial staff based on their dedication, industry prestige, and exceptional accomplishments as channel advocates.

“CRN’s 2021 Channel Chiefs list includes the industry’s biggest channel evangelists, a group of individuals who work tirelessly on behalf of their partners and drive growth through the development of strong partner programs and innovative business strategies that help bring business-critical solutions to market,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The Channel Company is proud to recognize these channel influencers and looks forward to following their continued success.”
