Sean McCaffery, Rackspace’s director of channel sales and worldwide operations, has been named to CRN’s list of “100 People You Don’t Know But Should In 2012.”
According to CRN, the “100 People You Don’t Know But Should” are the directors, vice presidents and officers who lead their channel programs without fanfare, exhibiting the strength, determination and creativity required to support solution providers on a daily basis.
“McCaffery runs channel operations globally and influences [Rackspace’s] channel strategy to make sure the company’s partner program is running lean and mean for its cloud-focused solution providers,” CRN wrote.
This marks the second annual list of “100 People You Don’t Know But Should,” which CRN said honors the “unsung leaders in the IT channel.”
“While solution providers may already be aware of a vendor’s channel chief, many are still unaware of the individuals behind the chiefs; the home office shot-callers responsible for delivering a successful channel program,” Kelley Damore, vice president and editorial director for UBM Channel, said in a statement. “Many of these individuals lead the way without recognition, and yet they have made a significant impact in driving the success of their channel program. I’m pleased to bring attention to their contributions.”
