INDIANAPOLIS – May 10, 2021 – Scale Computing, a market leader in edge computing, virtualization, and hyperconverged solutions, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Marlena Fernandez, vice president of marketing, to its 2021 Power 100 list, an elite subgroup of standout individuals selected from the annual CRN® Women of the Channel list, for the second consecutive year.
The women honored on this year’s list pushed forward with comprehensive business plans, marketing initiatives and other innovative ideas to support their partners and customers, helping them through the uncertainty brought on by the global COVID-19 pandemic. CRN celebrates these exceptional women for their leadership, dedication and channel advocacy.
The CRN editorial team chose the annual Power 100 honorees based on their contributions, expertise and dedication to supporting IT channel success. The Power 100 award recognizes a select group of incredible women who have gone above and beyond — inspiring their peers through their leadership and unwavering commitment to the success of their partners, customers and the entire IT channel.
Fernandez joined the Scale Computing team in 2019 and was the first executive to be named to the CRN Women of the Channel list and the Power 100 list. Over the past year, she helped shift the company’s focus to give Scale Computing’s partners a broader solutions portfolio to share with their end customers. Fernandez was instrumental in driving the company’s commitment to growing its business with the partner community and better enabling them to successfully meet their end users’ IT infrastructure needs. She also played a critical role in expanding Scale Computing’s partner base by nearly double, growing customers and revenue by 45% in 2020.
“Marlena is a key influential member of our executive team, bringing insights from her years of results-oriented global marketing experience to help Scale Computing reach its strategic goals,” said Dave Hallmen, chief revenue officer at Scale Computing. “Her continued commitment to growing our business through our award winning Scale Computing Partner Community and strong leadership makes Marlena very deserving of this recognition for the second consecutive year. For the remainder of 2021 she will help lead our continued focus on bringing edge computing and hyperconverged solutions to large enterprises, solution providers and select industry segments.”
“CRN’s 2021 Women of the Channel list acknowledges accomplished, influential women whose dedication, hard work, and leadership accelerate channel growth,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “We are proud to honor them for their many accomplishments and look forward to their continued contributions to the IT channel.”
