Midokura's Susan Wu Named to 2015 CRN Women of the Channel List

Director of Technical Marketing Recognized for Outstanding Contributions to the IT Channel Ecosystem

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 1, 2015) - Midokura, a global startup focused on network virtualization, today announced that Susan Wu, director of technical marketing, has been named to The Channel Company's prestigious 2015 CRN® Women of the Channel list.

An annual list, the CRN Women of the Channel honors outstanding female executives across vendor channel organizations, distributors, solution providers and other women prominently involved in the IT channel ecosystem. Winners were carefully reviewed and selected by the editors of CRN Magazine based on their accomplishments and the influence they wield over the technology channel.

Ms. Wu's achievements include securing new partners for Midokura, most recently with AURO, Canada's only Enterprise Public Cloud powered by OpenStack, and Redapt, a global systems integrator focused on data center infrastructure and cloud engineering services. Redapt was awarded Dell's Enterprise Solution Provider of the Year in 2014 and Intel Hybrid Cloud Partner of the Year in 2015. Additionally, Ms. Wu is an active supporter of women in technology efforts and serves on the Cloud Network of Women (CloudNOW) Board of Directors.

Along with today's recognition, Ms. Wu was honored as one of GetVoIP's "Top 25 Most Influential Women in Cloud" in March.
