PHOENIX — Feb. 16, 2021 — Darcee Nelan, CEO of IQ Wired, Inc. has been named a 2021 Channel Influencer Award winner by Channel Partners and Channel Futures.

The awards recognize the people, technologies, trends and organizations that will shape the new channel in 2021.

Darcee was one of nine individuals cited as being a thought leader mapping the direction of the new channel.

Darcee has been in technology since 1984 and at IQ Wired since 2010. Darcee is responsible for her organization’s strategy, execution and culture; leading in a supportive, forward-thinking and challenging manner much the same way she communicates and influences our industry. Darcee and her team are committed to making their Clients’ lives a little easier by translating their business initiatives into the right technology solutions that deliver results and make an impact.

“Channel Partners has a unique vantage point from which to identify the most influential people in the industry,” said Bobby DeMarzo, vice president of content, Informa Tech Channels Group. “These honorees are true channel advocates within their organizations, the industry and among their peers. Influence can be measured in many ways, but we examine how these individuals and organizations carved out paths as thought leaders helping to identify growth opportunities or accelerate the channel’s evolution. The influencers within the Channel Partners and Channel Futures community are those with a true network that have a loyal, trusted following.”

“Our editorial team carefully examined the industry for individuals and organizations that are exerting true influence in the channel today,” said Craig Galbraith, editorial director, Channel Partners & Channel Futures. “Our criteria include how they helped move the telco and IT channel forward with their thoughts, actions and words. We found the pandemic has redefined what influence means and how it is exerted. Not everyone can be an influencer. It takes courage and a point of view that makes partners, vendors, customers and suppliers stop and think”

All 50 of the 2021 winners are profiled in a digital publication available for download from the Channel Partners website.
