SAN MATEO, Calif., Feb. 11, 2019 – Exabeam, the next-gen SIEM company, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Ted Plumis, vice president of Channels, Business and Corporate Development, to its prestigious list of 2019 Channel Chiefs for the eighth consecutive year. The top IT channel leaders included on this list continually strive to drive growth and revenue in their organization through their channel partners.
Each of the 2019 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated exceptional leadership, vision, and commitment to their channel partner programs. Channel Chief honorees are selected by CRN’s editorial staff as a result of their professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the channel partner community, and strategies for driving future growth and innovation.
Plumis has more than 19 years of experience in the information security industry in various channel, sales and management roles while being a part of two successful acquisitions and one IPO. In Exabeam’s efforts to move to a partner-driven product implementation model, Plumis led a team that helped to enable a handful of partners in the last six months, and they have delivered over 60 deployments of Exabeam.
In 2018, Plumis assisted in the launch of two key partner enablement initiatives—the launch of the Exabeam Partner Portal and the Exabeam onsite training program for Sales and Pre-Sales Enablement, which resulted in more than 120 partner sales reps and SEs trained in nine countries over four months. With the Partner Portal and onsite training program, Exabeam global partners have immediate access the tools they need to be successful in their regions and the confidence and competence to drive the Exabeam sales cycle with their prospects.
“The individuals on CRN’s 2019 Channel Chiefs list deserve special recognition for their contribution and support in the development of robust partner programs, innovative business strategies, and significant influence to the overall health of the IT channel,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “We applaud each Channel Chief’s remarkable record of accomplishments and look forward to following their continued success.”
“It is my honor to be recognized as a 2019 CRN Channel Chief for the tremendous growth in the Exabeam channel program,” said Plumis. “I’m inspired by the continued advancement Exabeam has had within our partner community, and the success those partners are having in providing smarter security management options to their customers. I look forward to further evolving our channel programs as we continue to work with partners to provide their customers value for their budget dollars.”
