This marks the eighth year in a row that Cullen has earned the Channel Chiefs distinction.
In addition, Cullen earned further CRN recognition with his selection to an elite group of 50 channel executives chosen from the overall Channel Chiefs list for demonstrating the highest levels of industry influence.
The prestigious CRN Channel Chiefs list spotlights the most powerful leaders in the IT channel and recognizes those executives directly responsible for driving channel sales and growth within their organization, while evangelizing the importance of the channel throughout the entire IT industry. CRN Channel Chiefs were selected by the CRN editorial team based on channel experience, program innovations, channel-driven revenue and public support for the importance of IT channel sales.
"Mike continues to stand out as one of the most innovative and effective global sales and business leaders in the IT channel," says JP Jauvin, general manager, N-able by SolarWinds. "Our sales team is among the leading organizations in our category and has set new standards of excellence across the board. We congratulate Mike on this well-deserved recognition and ongoing success as one of the IT industry's most influential sales leaders and Channel Chiefs."
Backed by the strength of its parent company, SolarWinds, N-able reached new milestones with its partner network under Cullen's direction in 2013. In addition, N-able and the N-central RMM platform earned a number of high-profile IT channel accolades, including being named to the CRN Tech Innovators list as the top contender in the managed services category for the second consecutive year.
"We are pleased to highlight the many executives throughout the industry who work tirelessly to advance the standing of the channel community within their organizations. The CRN Channel Chief honorees lead, inspire and engage peers and serve as valuable advocates to help ensure the health and longevity of the channel within the IT industry.
