July 27, 2010

FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif., July 27 /PRNewswire/ — ATEN today announced that Lisa Person, Senior Sales Manager, has been recognized by Everything Channel’s CRN Magazine as one of the top Women of the Channel. CRN’s annual list recognizes female executives across vendors’ channel organizations, distributors and solution providers for their accomplishments over the past year and the far-reaching impact they are having on the technology industry going forward. This year’s Women of the Channel were chosen by the editors of CRN Magazine based on their achievements as executives and the amount of influence they wield over the technology channel.

In her current role, Person is responsible for leading ATEN’s on-going channel and sales strategy. More recently, she launched the company’s deal registration program, increased her sales team by 20 percent and was instrumental in the execution of ATEN’s trade-up promotion. Prior to her current position, she was Sales Manager and Distribution Sales Manager at ATEN where she honed her channel expertise to develop the company’s first reseller program – the 6-Star VAR program. Person also created ATEN’s distribution channel by signing D&H, Synnex, Synnex Canada, Tech Data Canada and Bell Micro.

“Women hold many prominent executive positions at vendor organizations, distributors and solution provider organizations, providing critical insight and influence when it comes to technology and the channel. We want to honor and congratulate these women for their contributions to the industry and their respective organizations,” said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, Everything Channel.

“We are very proud that Lisa was selected to receive this recognition from Everything Channel,” explained Sampson Yang, CEO of ATEN. “She is an asset to ATEN and has been a consistent contributor to our growth and success. This honor underscores Lisa’s unrelenting commitment to our channel program and valued partners.”

A special feature on the Women of the Channel is in the July issue of CRN Magazine and expanded coverage will be featured online at www.crn.com.
