ViewSonic's Colleen Browne Recognized by CRN as One of the Top Women of the Channel

WALNUT, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 21, 2013) - ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of computing, consumer electronics and communications solutions today announced that its director of North American sales, Colleen Browne, has once again been recognized by UBM Tech Channel's CRN as one of the top Women of the Channel. CRN's annual list recognizes nearly 300 female executives across vendor channel organizations, distributors and solution providers for their accomplishments over the past year, and the far-reaching impact they are having on the technology industry going forward. This year's Women of the Channel were chosen by the editors of CRN based on their achievements as executives and the amount of influence they wield over the technology channel. These women represent a changing trend in a traditionally male-dominated industry.

Colleen Browne successfully increased ViewSonic's reseller base through initiatives that included participation in more reseller-specific trade shows; a re-launch of ViewSonic's award-winning reseller portal: Finch Club; and a concerted communications initiative from webcasts, webinars and marketing communications. All of these efforts informed resellers of the diversity of technology available to them in the spirit of growing their revenue and margin. Browne also helped to established an inside sales team to engage specifically with the channel. This dedicated team of professionals continues to positively impact current and new resellers with opportunities through education

"We honor and congratulate this list of influential women who are dedicated to supporting the mission of the channel," said Robert Faletra, CEO, UBM Tech Channel.
