Dallas, Texas | February 8, 2021 | FireMon, the leading network security policy management company that brings visibility, control, agility, and automation to enterprise cloud and hybrid network infrastructure, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Andrew Warren, Vice President of Global Channel Sales, to its 2021 list of Channel Chiefs. The prestigious CRN® Channel Chiefs list, released annually, recognizes leading IT channel vendor executives who continually demonstrate outstanding leadership, influence, innovation, and growth.
Warren has spent almost his entire career in distribution serving the security market, starting at Avnet in 2004, and rising there to Director of Western Region Sales. He then moved to Westcon in 2010 as Vice President, Sales Leader and General Manager Cyber Security Solutions, a role he held for nearly six years. In 2016, Warren took on running Westcon’s North American operations, where he remained following Westcon’s 2017 acquisition by SYNNEX until he left for FireMon in January 2020.
“This recognition is a testament to how fundamental the channel is to FireMon’s go-to-market strategy. As our customers move to the cloud and zero-trust network architectures, they’re looking to the partner community to help them secure their infrastructure in the face of massive change. Our channel partners help us get in front of more enterprises, win more business, and solve more customer challenges,” said Warren.
The 2021 Channel Chiefs are prominent leaders who have influenced the IT channel with cutting-edge strategies, programs, and partnerships. CRN’s editorial staff selects all honorees 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.”
