New York, NY - May 11, 2020 – SecurityScorecard, the global leader in security ratings, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Nicole Stavroff, senior director of WorldWide Channels, to its esteemed 2020 Women of the Channel list. Recognizing the unique strengths, vision, and achievements of a select group of women, this prestigious annual list acknowledges channel leaders who are blazing a trail for future generations. These women are from all areas of the IT ecosystem, including technology vendors, distributors, solution providers, and other IT organizations.

The CRN® editorial team selects the honorees to celebrate a list of exceptional women acclaimed for their contributions to channel advocacy, growth, thought leadership, and dedication to the IT channel. Earlier this year, Nicole was also included in CRN’s 2020 list of Channel Chiefs, which recognizes the top vendor executives who continually demonstrate exemplary leadership, influence, innovation, and growth for the IT channel.

“Being recognized by CRN for the second time this year is incredibly humbling and I am privileged to be named alongside so many amazing women leaders who have achieved great success,” said Stavroff. “I am proud to lead the global channel partner program at SecurityScorecard, where we offer our channel partners a differentiated solution that delivers business value for their customers. Together, we are helping to make the world a safer place by giving companies of all sizes a comprehensive view of their cybersecurity posture.”

Nicole currently oversees all global channel relationships at SecurityScorecard. To date, her primary objective has been leading a complete relaunch of the partner program while simultaneously expanding existing partner relationships and recruiting new strategic partners. With Security Scorecard being 100% through the channel, the program is stronger and more robust than ever before. Nicole brings 20 years of sales and channel experience to the role with prior sales leadership roles at well-known businesses including CloudGenix, NetApp and Oracle.

“CRN’s 2020 Women of the Channel list recognizes an accomplished group of influential women leaders whose strategic vision and unique achievements accelerate channel growth through cultivated partnerships, innovative thought leadership, and unwavering dedication to the IT channel,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “We are proud to honor them for their accomplishments and contributions to driving channel success.”
