Over the past year, Nimergood has solidified CommVault’s multi-route channel strategy, which he underpinned with a revamped PartnerAdvantage program for solution VARs, and SP/Cloud providers. Additionally, Nimergood has worked to enhance CommVault’s relevancy to the channel in the company’s sales engagement processes, product and solution packaging that is designed and built for the channel. Under his leadership, CommVault made great strides in strengthening its relationships with its rapidly growing OEM and alliances eco-system. The end result has been increased value for customers and loyalty from the CommVault channel community.
“It is an honor to be recognized by CRN as an individual, but I am proud of the entire CommVault channel & alliances organization,” said Nimergood. “This is truly a testament of our team’s efforts to ensure that we are delivering on the CommVault brand promise with our partners and as a result enhance our value to our customers they serve. We will continue to invest in our partners as they are at the center of our go-to-market strategy.”
Skidmore has been named a CRN Channel Chief for the third year in a row. This past year he focused on improving profitability for channel partners by designing differentiation around new channel packaged solution sets. He also led the charge in redefining CommVault’s channel team’s focus around partners committed to building a business around CommVault’s offering to data management.
“I am humbled to be recognized for the third year in a row as a Channel Chief by CRN,” said Skidmore. “CommVault’s partners are fundamental for our business and we continue to work as a channel team to offer our customers the right solutions to accelerate revenue growth and help them expand into new markets.
