Bill Simpson, Recognized as 2015 CRN Channel Chief

March 17, 2015

Nasuni®, a provider of enterprise storage to global organizations, announced today that Bill Simpson has been named to the prestigious list of the 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs. The influential executives on this annual list represent the most powerful leaders in the IT channel who hold direct responsibility for driving growth and revenue for their organizations through their indirect channel partners. Individuals are selected for inclusion based on their track record of channel accomplishments, standing in the industry, dedication to the partner community, and plans for driving future business innovation and channel growth.

The 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs have demonstrated their enduring support for the channel by consistently defending, promoting and executing effective channel partner programs and strategies.

Bill Simpson has more than 20 years of technology sales experience and possesses a strong track record of building highly productive channel and sales organizations for young, fast-growing technology companies. In the past year, he has helped Nasuni triple its business with new customer installations across the globe. As Nasuni continues to grow exponentially, however, Simpson’s responsibilities as Vice President of Worldwide Sales have grown. To ensure Nasuni has the highest level of focus on the channel, Warren Mead, a former CRN Channel Chief himself, has been appointed to the position of Vice President of Channel Sales and Business Development, working closely with Simpson to expand and support Nasuni’s global channel partners.

“Each year, our editors carefully vet an extensive group of highly accomplished channel executives to highlight those exemplary individuals who earn the mantle of CRN Channel Chief. These executives strive to advance the success and standing of the channel community within their organizations. The 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs lead by example and serve as valuable advocates to help ensure the health and longevity of the IT channel. We applaud their accomplishments and look forward to their continued success,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company.

“At Nasuni, our success depends on the channel’s success, because we sell 100 percent through the channel,” said Bill Simpson. “I’m honored to be named a 2015 CRN Channel Chief, and, with the appointment of Warren as Vice President of Channel Sales, our focus on the channel will become more intense and the benefits to our partners will continue to grow.”
