Bill Kavanaugh named channel chief for third consecutive year

For the third consecutive year, CRN recognised Bill Kavanaugh, associate vice president of sales at Hyland, creator of OnBase, as one of the most powerful leaders within the IT channel. Kavanaugh was named to the prestigious list of 2016 Channel Chiefs for driving sales growth within Hyland’s partner network and evangelising the importance of the channel throughout the entire IT industry.

The Channel Chiefs list identifies the channel executives who consistently defend, promote and execute effective channel partner programs and strategies. Kavanaugh was chosen by CRN editors based on his track record of channel accomplishments, standing in the industry, dedication to the partner community and plans for driving future business innovation and channel growth.

“Our goal is to continue to empower our partners to deliver comprehensive enterprise information solutions that meet the exact needs of our customers,” said Kavanaugh. “Our dedication to providing our more than 300 partners with the resources they need to be knowledgeable extensions of the company has led to the creation of the strongest partner network we’ve ever had.” 

The 2016 Channel Chiefs list is featured in the February/March issue of CRN, and online at
