Mountain View, Calif., February 23, 2015 – Tintri, the leading producer of smart storage for virtualization and cloud environments, announced today that John Schwan, VP of Americas Channel, has been named to The Channel Company’s prestigious list of the 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs. The influential executives on this annual list represent the most powerful leaders in the IT channel. They hold direct responsibility for driving growth and revenue for their organizations through their indirect channel partners. Individuals are selected for inclusion based on their track record of channel accomplishments, standing in the industry, dedication to the partner community, and plans for driving future business innovation and channel growth.
Since joining Tintri in 2014, Schwan has helped execute a comprehensive Global Partner Strategy. Under Schwan’s leadership, Tintri has grown the company’s depth of relationship with strategic partners, increased investment to support partner go to market activities and incentive programs, and expanded the Tintri partner sales team for more engagement with partners.
The Tintri Partner Program is a major component of Tintri’s global go-to market strategy, as the company scales to accommodate its rapid growth in demand for its smart storage. Enterprise customers collectively run more than 300,000 virtual machines on Tintri and nearly 70 percent of Tintri customers make repeat purchases within 18 months of buying their first Tintri VMstore. The success of Tintri partners has contributed to the company’s growth of 140 percent year over year.
“Each year, our editors carefully vet an extensive group of highly accomplished channel executives to highlight those exemplary individuals who earn the mantle of CRN Channel Chief. These executives strive to advance the success and standing of the channel community within their organizations. The 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs lead by example and serve as valuable advocates to help ensure the health and longevity of the IT channel. We applaud their accomplishments and look forward to their continued success,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company.
“I am thrilled to be recognized by CRN as one of the 2014 Channel Chiefs,” said Schwan “I am proud of the results our team is achieving in deepening relationships with our partner community along with adding new focused partners. Unlike many other storage vendors, our goal is not to sign up every reseller- instead we focus on building business partnerships that are strategic and long lasting. We take pride in our ability to attract top partners through our channel-driven model and our highly differentiated products. I look forward to continuing to improve and grow our partner business and program.”
