CRN editors select the Women of the Channel honorees based on their professional accomplishments, demonstrated expertise and ongoing dedication to the IT channel.
Ms. Stucky was initially brought onto the Thycotic team to support and assist with the partner team. At the time Thycotic was a smaller company, but rapidly growing company where she quickly adapted into learning how a channel program could multiply sales. She is a highly- qualified individual specializing in data- driven demand generation, process and systems improvement and generating high-volume, high-converting leads worldwide. Ms. Stucky leads a world-class team of marketing professionals, to engage people through digital demand generation and in- person events.
Ms. McCroskey first joined Thycotic in the position of Channel Program Manager, responsible for International Channel growth. After transitioning her focus to growing the US Channel, in only one year, she was able to work closely with the channel team, which resulted in successfully adding more than 200 partners. Ms. McCroskey focused on learning how to effectively educate Thycotic partners not only technical details, but also educating them on sales and marketing strategies to ensure partners success. In April of last year, Ms. McCroskey was nominated and won the Presidents E Award for Thycotic. In receiving this award, it demonstrates growth in export sales for five consecutive years
“These extraordinary executives support every aspect of the channel ecosystem, from technical innovation to marketing to business development, working tirelessly to keep the channel moving into the future,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “They are creating and elevating channel partner programs, developing fresh go-to-market strategies, strengthening the channel’s network of partnerships and building creative new IT solutions, among many other contributions.
