By Jordan True

Washington, D.C. – February 20, 2017 – Thycotic, a provider of privileged account management (PAM) solutions for more than 7,500 organizations worldwide, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named its Vice President of Channel Sales, Bob Gagnon, to its prestigious list of 2017 Channel Chiefs. The executives on this annual list represent top leaders in the IT channel who excel at driving growth and revenue in their organizations through channel partners.

This acknowledgment from CRN marks the sixth year that Gagnon has been recognized as a Channel Chief. In the past year, Gagnon launched the Thycotic Federal program and signed and onboarded the ImmixGroup, one of the largest value-added distributors of enterprise software for public sector. His work helped lay the groundwork for advancing Thycotic’s market within Federal Government.

Channel Chief honorees are selected by CRN’s editorial staff on the basis of their professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the channel partner community and strategies for driving future growth and innovation. Each of the 2017 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated loyalty and ongoing support for the IT channel by consistently promoting, defending and executing outstanding channel partner programs.

“We have seen immense success in the Channel side of our business ever since Bob joined our team a few years back,” said James Legg, president and CEO at Thycotic. “Since increasing deal registration opportunities 800 percent from 2015 with the rollout of our ‘Thycotic Rewards Program’, Bob has since then begun to extend eligibility for incentive rewards across a broader variety of partner enabling activities including training and lead generation. He is most deserving of this award and we are proud to have him lead our Channel efforts.”

“The executives on our 2017 Channel Chiefs list have distinguished themselves by building strong partner programs, developing and executing effective business strategy and helping to advance the channel as a whole,” said Bob Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “They represent an extraordinary group of individuals who lead by example and serve as both invaluable advocates and innovators of the IT channel. We applaud their achievements and look forward to their successes in the coming year.”
