CRN's Channel Chiefs Directory lists vendors' senior channel leaders -  the people Australian channel companies will work with to form alliances and do deals!

The Directory is compiled by our editorial team after extensive research.

To be listed in the Directory, you need to be a senior executive in a dedicated partner-facing role. When a vendor company does not have a dedicated Channel Chief, we also consider submissions from executives in leadership roles that include an active responsibility for partner enablement and strategy. 

If you think you belong in the 2019 CRN Channel Chiefs Directory, complete a Channel Chiefs submission here.
