We are excited to announce that that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Kelly Ireland, our Founder, CEO, and CTO, as a 2023 Women of the Channel Power 80 Solution Provider — a subset of prominent executives selected from the CRN 2023 Women of the Channel list.

The CRN 2023 Women of the Channel honorees bring their creativity, strategic thinking, and leadership to bear, turning their unique talents toward driving success for their customers and technology partners. The annual Power 80 Solution Provider list honors the most influential women in leadership at some of the country’s most prominent solution providers, based on their remarkable expertise, channel advocacy and contributions to building solution provider businesses that thrive.

The women who populate the Power 80 Solution Provider list have gone above and beyond with their extraordinary commitment to the IT channel community, implementing strategies that have accelerated the success of their customers and technology partners—and the broader channel ecosystem as a result.

“We are ecstatic to announce this year’s honorees and shine a light on these women for their significant achievements, knowing that what they’ve accomplished has paved the way for continued success within the IT channel,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The channel is stronger because of them, and we look forward to seeing what they do next.” 

“I’m always so in awe of the women that I encounter within this industry and how they are so impassioned about bringing innovation to the world. Being honored by The Channel Company and included amongst this group is always humbling and so inspiring. I’ve had much more interaction over the last couple of years with woman leaders and watching what they are doing for their businesses, the industries they are in, and the world. We are making huge inroads together and I can’t wait to see what the next few years has to bring!” said Kelly Ireland, CBT Founder, CEO, and CTO.
