ConnectWise, the leading provider of business automation software for technology solution providers (TSPs), today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Brad Schow, vice president of consulting services, and Keith Graham, director of channel sales, 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.

As vice president of consulting services, Schow helps ConnectWise partners grow by maximizing their business success beyond simple product development. Over the past year, he and his team successfully aligned partners’ business maturity and adoption of ConnectWise offerings into the implementation services they provide.

“My team is focused on providing ConnectWise partners with operational and management assistance and leadership to help them break through plateaus, mature their business, and achieve growth and success,” said Schow. “This award is evidence that we’re on the right track and our efforts are paying off.”

As director of channel sales, Graham designs and executes successful sales strategies via our channel partner programs. Recently, he established a new OEM Program for ConnectWise and is an established leader for the ConnectWise Advantage Partner Program, a single partner program that provides a number of profitable avenues for our channel partners, including reselling, professional services, consulting, and platform integration.

"Being included on this list is a testament to the work our team does, day in and day out, to provide our partners with the right ecosystem to exceed their growth and productivity goals," said Graham. "That includes matching the best in class software, industry best practices, combined with the largest TSP partner community to achieve success in the as-a-service world."

CRN’s 2020 Channel Chiefs list honors the distinguished leaders who have influenced the IT channel with cutting-edge strategies and partnerships.

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.

Our team here at The Channel Company congratulates these outstanding individuals for their dedication to the channel.”
