BlackBerry Cylance’s May Mitchell Makes CRN’s Women of the Channel Power 100

May Mitchell, BlackBerry Cylance’s Vice President of Worldwide Field and Channel Marketing, for the third consecutive year has been named to CRN’s 2019 Power 100, an elite subset of its prestigious Women of the Channel list.

CRN’s editorial team chooses the list from a multitude of channel leadership applicants and selects the final honorees based on their professional accomplishments, demonstrated expertise, and ongoing dedication to the IT channel. The Power 100 belong to an exclusive group of the overall list: women whose leadership and vision are key drivers of their companies’ success and have had significant influence to move the entire IT channel forward.

“CRN’s 2019 Women of the Channel list honors influential leaders who are accelerating channel growth through mutually-benefical partnerships, incredible leadership, strategic vision, and unique contributions in their field,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “This accomplished group of leaders is driving channel success and we are proud to honor their acheivements.”

May leads BlackBerry Cylance’s field marketing team and the programs responsible for driving new business growth and customer retention through the partner ecosystem and sales channels across all customer segments and verticals. May has over twenty years of go-to-market, channel, and sales expertise in cybersecurity, cloud, mobile, and infrastructure solutions.

The BlackBerry Cylance Partner Program offers award-winning solutions built on advanced technology and a broad array of services. In March, Verizon selected BlackBerry Cylance’s AI-driven antivirus solutions for its industry-leading Managed Security Services (MSS) portfolio. Integrated solutions with Axiom Alliance Program partners enable channel partners to offer customers integrated solutions around SIEM, CASB, SOAR and mobile solutions.

"May is an exemplary leader and integral part of our go-to-market process, working with key partners and aligning our field marketing team,” said Daniel Doimo, COO of BlackBerry Cylance. "CRN’s recognition of May highlights BlackBerry Cylance’s commitment to providing a simple and consistent partnering sales motion.”

The 2019 Women of the Channel and Power 100 lists will be featured in the June issue of CRN Magazine and online at www.CRN.com/WOTC
