Blue Medora, a leading innovator in the enterprise management space, announced today that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Chris Noordyke, vice president of Worldwide Sales, to its prestigious list of 2016 Channel Chiefs. This is the third consecutive year Chris has been appeared on this list. The executives on this annual list represent top leaders in the IT channel who excel at driving growth and revenue in their organizations through channel partners.

Channel Chief honorees are selected by CRN’s editorial staff based on their professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the channel partner community and strategies for driving future growth and innovation. Each of the 2016 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated loyalty and ongoing support for the IT channel by consistently promoting, defending and executing outstanding channel partner programs.

Noordyke has been recognized for his leadership in building, supporting and delivering Blue Medora’s channel strategy, and in particular the launch of its global True Visibility Partner Program in September 2015.

Blue Medora provides resellers with a comprehensive partner portal, giving them exclusive sales support, 24/7 online quoting and access to certified sales and engineering support.
