LOS ANGELES – February 1, 2018 – The combined editorial teams of Channel Partners and Channel Futures have recognized Hilary Gadda as a channel innovator for 2018. The Innovator award category is one of four in the industry’s first Channel Influencer Awards, created by the two media brands to recognize the people, technologies, trends and organizations shaping the channel in 2018.
Gadda, director of channel development for TPx, is a proven channel leader and widely respected in the telecom and IT industries. She recently was named to CRN’s Women of the Channel list for the second consecutive year and is a co-founder and past president of Women in the Channel (WiC). She also served on CompTIA’s Advancing Women in IT (AWIT) Executive Council as well as the organization’s Vendor Advisory Council, and was recently elected to the association’s Future Leaders Council for 2018.
Eight channel leaders were named to the 2018 Channel Innovator list, which includes industry thought leaders who are paving the way to the “new channel.
“The ‘new channel’ is one of cooperation and collaboration—two skills that Hilary has in spades,” said Buffy Naylor, managing editor of Channel Futures and Channel Partners. “In my observation, Hilary pretty much wrote the book on mentoring. Her ability to help people realize their full potential is obvious in the channel sales growth she has facilitated at TPx. And watching her at work with Women in the Channel, I’m impressed by what seems to be her intrinsic understanding that a level playing field in tech, the channel—and pretty much anywhere in business—is a matter of balance, not bulldozing. She is one of the smartest and nicest people I have ever met.”
