CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, is the top technology news and information source for solution providers, IT channel partners, and value-added resellers. Last year, CRN put 5 UiPath executives on its grossly regarded Women of the Channel list for 2021 that recognizes the unique strengths, visions, and achievements of female leaders in the IT channel, including vendors, distributors, and solution providers. One out of the five was Cheryln Chin, Vice President, Global Partners & Alliances. Yesterday, UiPath announced that Cheryln, along with her colleague, Eddie O’Brien, Senior Vice President and Global Channel Chief, was put by CRN to its Channel Chiefs list. Let’s find out the details.
CRN’s annual Channel Chiefs list identifies top IT channel vendor executives who continually demonstrate expertise, influence, and innovation in channel leadership. A panel of CRN editors selected Chin and O’Brien among the honorees based on criteria such as their channel dedication, industry stature, and accomplishments as channel advocates. Under Chin and O’Brien’s leadership, the UiPath global partner ecosystem has grown by 28% in the last year, including 35% growth across the Americas and 27% growth in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. This growth has been fueled by new and expanded partnerships with companies such as Accenture, Cognizant, Deloitte, EY, and PwC, among other global partners.
“Cheryln and Eddie are first-class leaders on the UiPath team, fostering the partner-first mindset that is emblematic of our go-to-market team and fuels our entire organization. We continue to invest in and grow our partner ecosystem to drive our partners’ service differentiation, scale, and profitability with the ultimate goal of enabling many more companies to unlock their greatest potential through automation.”
