CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named SADA’s Chief Revenue Officer Sandy Hogan and Chief Marketing Officer Narine Galstian to the 2023 Women of the Channel Power 80 Solution Provider List. Additionally, Courtney Graham, Vice President of Sales, Central Region, and Nikki Harley, Vice President, Partner Ecosystem and Solutions, have been honored with inclusion in the CRN 2023 Women of the Channel list.
The CRN 2023 Women of the Channel honorees are recognized for their creativity, strategic thinking, and leadership as they take on complex challenges. 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.
Over the past year, Sandy Hogan has built go-to-market solution offerings with partners while creating differentiated market solution offerings. These offerings encompass services for customers on Google Cloud, Workspace, and Maps. Additionally, Sandy built over 50 new partner relationships and agreements with partners on Google Marketplace.
In 2022, Narine Galstian was named the honoree company executive of the year in the large company category by Los Angeles Times B2B Publishing at the second annual Inspirational Women Forum and Awards event. Deeply committed to philanthropic work in the greater LA area, she is an ambassador for the Children’s Hospital in LA and is passionate about bringing awareness to children’s diseases–especially those that disproportionately impact low-income families.
Nikki Harley has established more than 50 new partnerships with leading ISVs on the Google Cloud Marketplace in the past year, further strengthening SADA’s partner ecosystem to bring outcomes-focused solutions to customers. In 2023, she launched SADA’s Cloud Security Confidence Program, developed in close collaboration with leading security partners, designed to feature eight unique solutions that include Google Cloud native technologies.
Courtney Graham has spent the past three years at SADA building a team from the ground up that helps deliver services implementation, advisory consulting, and migration deployment for organizations shifting their central focus to innovation and transformation. She was instrumental in building the fastest growing cloud business at SADA and pivoted the company toward a renewed emphasis on services implementation.
“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.”
SADA CEO Tony Safoian was quick to note these leaders’ visionary leadership and track record of success. “Sandy, Narine, Nikki, and Courtney continue to set the bar high and inspire all of us at SADA to deliver for our customers. I couldn’t be more thrilled to work with them every day to champion innovative, next-level solutions and services. We’re so lucky to have them, and I commend them on this well-deserved honor.”
The 2023 Women of the Channel list will be featured in the June issue of CRN Magazine, with online coverage starting May 8.
