HOPKINTON, Mass - July 26, 2012 -
EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC) today announced that the following seven Channel leaders across EMC, its RSA Security Division, and Iomega Corporation have been honored in CRN Magazine's 2012 Women of the Channel award program, recognized by the industry for their work as influential leaders within their own company and the IT Channel as a whole:
Furthermore, Linda Connly, Julie Christiansen and Kara Myers were named among this year's Power 100 – an elite subset of CRN's annual Women of the Channel list that recognizes individuals who have reached the highest levels of success in the IT Channel industry based on their achievements as executives and influence they wield in the field.
This year's Power 100 and Women of the Channel were selected by the editors of CRN from a field of applications and nominations spanning vendor Channel organizations, distributors and solution providers. Criteria for selection was based on the role each applicant played over the past year in driving revenue for their company and the steps they have taken to evangelize the importance of the IT Channel.
All seven women made significant impacts in the EMC, RSA and Iomega Channel Partner programs by contributing to the development and introduction of new programs and practices, while enhancing existing ones to provide the most Partner-friendly experience in the industry:
Editorial coverage of the Women of the Channel appeared in the July issue of CRN and expanded coverage of the Power 100 was featured online at www.crn.com.

"Now in its 9th annual publication, CRN's special Women of the Channel issue is one of our most popular of the year. Honoring female executives based on their accomplishments over the past year and their dedication to driving the overall success of the IT Channel, the Women of the Channel list is especially important because it recognizes successful and influential women in what has long been considered a male-centric industry. The Power 100 designation is a special achievement award given to an elite subset of our Women of the Channel list. I take great pride in honoring and congratulating these women for their contributions to the industry and their respective organizations."
Gregg Ambulos, Senior Vice President of Global Channel Sales, EMC Corporation
