LANDesk Software's Nolan Rosen Named as 2011 Channel Chief by Everything Channel's CRN

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - February 22, 2011) - LANDesk Software, a global leader in systems lifecycle management, endpoint security and IT service management, today announced that Nolan Rosen, vice president of partnering and alliances, has been named a 2011 Channel Chief by Everything Channel's CRN. Channel Chiefs are recognized as leaders that consistently defend, promote and execute effective channel partner programs and strategies. 

The 2011 Channel Chiefs were chosen based by Everything Channel editorial on criteria including policy and program innovations made during the past year, the amount of revenue their company generates through partners, their willingness to speak out publicly on behalf of the channel, and the number of years they have dedicated to channel activities. 

Rosen joined LANDesk in 2009, bringing more than 20 years of leadership and sales and marketing experience in the high tech industry to the company. Under Rosen's leadership, LANDesk enhanced its channel strategy to offer a managed services provider (MSP) model, in addition to its successful VAR program. LANDesk now offers MSPs the support and flexibility needed to grow their LANDesk business and expand into more profitable areas of the managed services business through innovative products, preferred pricing, and additional resources specific to the MSP market. In 2010, LANDesk expanded its partner community, adding 80 new partners and growing revenue in some areas by as much as 35 percent.

"Growth, profitability and opportunity are at the heart of our channel success," said Nolan Rosen, vice president of partnering and alliances at LANDesk Software. "We are passionate about integrating our channel into the fabric of our business and attribute our leadership in systems lifecycle management, endpoint security and IT service management to our strong commitment to our channel."
"Being named a Channel Chief is one of the most prestigious honors in the IT industry. This year's Channel Chiefs offer tremendous insight into the who's who of the Channel," said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, Everything Channel. "Top channel executives consistently ensure that the Channel's voice is heard when strategic decisions are being made and continually nurture mutually profitable relationships. We applaud this year's Channel Chiefs for their successful partner programs and strategies."
