Each year CRN’s list recognizes the unique strengths, vision and achievements of female leaders in the IT channel. The women honored on the 2021 list pushed forward with comprehensive business plans, marketing initiatives and other innovative ideas to support their partners and customers, helping them through the uncertainty brought on by the global COVID-19 pandemic. CRN celebrates these exceptional women for their leadership, dedication and channel advocacy.
Rachel Turkus, a proven technology leader and channel marketing executive, is making her first appearance on the CRN Women of the Channel List. In October of 2020, Turkus became Senior Channel Marketing Manager at NetFortris, where she is focused on to-channel and through-channel marketing.
Turkus brings five years of IT/telecom channel experience from both the solutions provider/VAR and service provider/vendor sides of the business to her new role at NetFortris, where she’s made an immediate impact in expanding the perception of the brand, creating a cadence of partner communications, strengthening relationships with master agents, improving web and sales content, enabling partners with marketing tools and bringing awareness of the impact of marketing on sales.
“We’re thrilled that Rachel has been named to CRN’s 2021 Women of the Channel list,” said Tess Smith, Senior Vice President of Sales at NetFortris. “Rachel has been integral to driving NetFortris’ channel-first marketing initiatives, which have resulted in a significant increase in partner quotes for NetFortris’ solutions. We thank her for representing NetFortris well and congratulate her on this well-deserved recognition.”
