BOSTON, June 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Carbonite, Inc. (Nasdaq:CARB), a leading provider of hybrid backup and recovery solutions for businesses, today announced Kari Oldach, director of channel marketing, has been named to the CRN 2014 Women of the Channel list and has been recognized as one of this year's Power 100. The annual Women of the Channel list highlights the accomplishments of female executives within vendor, distribution, and solution provider organizations, and the impact they are having on the advancement of the IT channel. The Power 100 spotlights an elite subset of female executives at vendor and distributor organizations, whose insight and influence in their respective companies help drive channel success.
Oldach has dedicated her career to the channel, focusing on integrating partner programs into overall company strategy from development and execution to lead generation and sales enablement. At Carbonite, her role is critical in implementing the company shift to a partner-focused organization. One of her most recent successes is the Carbonite Partner Referral Program, which saw more than 1,000 enrollments in less than two months. As Carbonite refocuses its marketing program to cater to new and prospective partners, Oldach will work closely with her team to bring to market unique solutions and programs that will motivate the partner community and continue to build on the mark she has made within the channel.
"Kari's 14 years of channel experience provide her with the ideal tools, resources and know-how to guide our organization as we make the strategic shift toward a channel-first approach to business," said David Maffei, vice president, Global Channel Sales, Carbonite. "We are thrilled that she has received this well-deserved recognition, and we're excited at the prospect of what's to come for our Partner Program. Her passion for expanding visibility for the channel is reflected in her work at Carbonite, as well as the channel community, and we congratulate her on this achievement."
"It is our privilege to acknowledge the exceptional achievements of the women in this year's Power 100," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "We are committed to raising the visibility of the contributions of women in the channel, and we applaud the far-reaching influence of these executives who are defining today's channel and helping to shape its future."
