CAMPBELL, Calif. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Soonr, a leading provider of file sharing and collaboration, announced today that Martin Frid-Nielsen, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, was named one of CRN’s Top 100 Executives for 2013 in the category of “Top 25 Disrupters.” This annual list salutes the most influential, innovative, and game-changing channel executives in North America.
The Top 100 Executives list is based on ongoing feedback throughout the year from solution providers, with rankings based on channel influence, effectiveness and visibility, along with business and sales impact. Final selections were made by a panel of CRN editors. Among the criteria considered were channel sales volume, channel investment and resources, channel advocacy and visibility, and performance in The Channel Company research projects including the Annual Report Card and Channel Champions.
Soonr has been demonstrating leadership in the channel since inception, and today boasts a worldwide network of solution providers, VARs, MSPs, and integrators. In August of this year, Soonr launched a totally revamped partner program designed to enable channel partners to take advantage of the rapidly expanding business opportunities in cloud services with Soonr Workplace.
