MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - May 23, 2016) - Gridstore™ the leader in hyper-converged all flash infrastructure announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Victoria Grey, CMO, to its prestigious 2016 Women of the Channel list. The women executives who comprise this annual list span the IT channel, representing vendors, distributors, solution providers and other organizations that figure prominently in the channel ecosystem. Each is recognized for her outstanding leadership, vision, and unique role in driving channel growth and innovation.

CRN editors select the Women of the Channel honorees on the basis of their professional accomplishments, demonstrated expertise and ongoing dedication to the IT channel.

As Chief Marketing Officer for Gridstore, Grey is responsible for enabling channel partners to be successful with Gridstore. To drive channel growth in 2015 she designed and implemented several innovative programs in both North America and EMEA. Since lead generation is so critical to market penetration, she launched the Gridstore Campaign Creator, a self-service web-based tool that allows partners to leverage Gridstore campaigns with their own branding. With a few clicks partners are able to have a ready-made campaign to entice their customers to engage.

Grey also ran co-marketing webinars with key partners to develop business, as well as a total overhaul of the partner portal, MDF program, and sales enablement initiatives. Relationships in working with the channel are critical, and she personally engaged with Gridstore's key partners to develop quarterly marketing plans and drive their execution, helping partners to maintain their competitive advantage in their chosen markets.

"These executives have made a lasting mark on our industry-growing and elevating partner programs, leading transitions to new business models and introducing cutting-edge go-to-market strategies, among other remarkable achievements," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "We congratulate all the 2016 Women of the Channel and celebrate their singular contributions to the advancement of the channel ecosystem."

"I am extremely honored to be recognized by CRN as one of the 2016 Women of the Channel," said Victoria Grey, CMO, Gridstore. "CRN does an extremely important job in bringing attention to the value of the channel, something I've long been committed to."
