INDIANAPOLIS - May 9, 2022 - Scale Computing, a market leader in edge computing, virtualization, and hyperconverged solutions, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Marlena Fernandez, vice president of marketing, to its 2022 Power 100 list, an elite subset of influential executive leaders chosen from the annual CRN Women of the Channel list, for the third consecutive year. CRN also honored Caitlin Tindle, partner marketing manager, on its coveted Women of the Channel list.
Through strong business acumen, innovation, and strategic thinking, these extraordinary women support partners and customers with exceptional leadership. CRN celebrates these women, who are so deserving of recognition, for their constant dedication to channel excellence.
Chosen by the CRN editorial team based on their contributions, expertise, and channel advocacy, the Power 100 list honors some of the most powerful women of the channel. This select group of distinguished female leaders from channel-focused IT vendors has shown incredible dedication and leadership — going above and beyond with unwavering channel commitment — inspiring their peers and driving the success of partners, customers, and the entire IT channel.
Fernandez joined the Scale Computing team in 2019 and was the first executive to be named to the CRN Women of the Channel list and the Power 100 list. Over the past year she was instrumental in driving the company’s commitment to growing its business with the partner community and better enabling them to successfully meet their end users’ IT infrastructure needs. Fernandez also played a critical role in doubling Scale Computing’s partner base and growing customers and revenue in 2021.
“We are enormously proud of what Marlena and Caitlin have accomplished, not just for Scale Computing, but for the overall channel ecosystem. Marlena is a crucial member of our executive team, bringing insights from her 20+ years of results-oriented global marketing experience and Caitlin is tremendously dedicated to partner success, making Scale Computing the consistent choice for channel partners,” said Dave Hallmen, chief revenue officer at Scale Computing. “They’re continued commitment to growing our business through our award winning Scale Computing Partner Community and strong leadership make both very deserving of this recognition. We look forward to growing our partner program through the rest of 2022 and beyond.”
Tindle joined Scale Computing in early 2021 as partner marketing manager and focuses on leading Scale Computing’s alliances and distribution relationships. During the past year she played a pivotal role in revamping the company’s partner enablement programs including the addition of new certifications and launching a new certification program, Scale Computing Certified Professionals.
“We are proud to once again recognize the remarkable leaders on this year’s Women of the Channel list. Their influence, confidence, and diligence continue to accelerate channel success significantly,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “Their accomplishments will inspire others, and we look forward to witnessing their future contributions to the channel.”
