CRM Cloud Computing: Salesforce Exec Listed as 2011 Channel Chief
The Vice President of global ISV alliances at salesforce.com, Ron Huddleston, has been recognized as a 2011 Channel Chief by Everything Channel’s CRN Magazine. As a leader in the worldwide sales software organization, Huddleston was a staple figure in Salesforce’s shift toward partner-led implementations and the development of partner-centric technologies.
Kelley Damore, VP, editorial director, Everything Channel, stated, "Being named a Channel Chief is one of the most prestigious honors in the IT industry. This year's Channel Chiefs offer tremendous insight into the who's who of the Channel. Top channel executives consistently ensure that the Channel's voice is heard when strategic decisions are being made and continually nurture mutually profitable relationships. We applaud this year's Channel Chiefs for their successful partner programs and strategies."
The Salesforce partner program provides partners with the capabilities to deliver social, mobile, and open cloud computing solutions using Force.com, according to the company. CRN Magazine noted that Huddleston was an integral part of Salesforce’s development of its channel program, and its effective deliverance of Cloud 2 to the channel.
Huddleston noted, "The salesforce.com partner program is based on the fundamental idea that we do not succeed unless our partners succeed. It is this mantra that motivates us to continue building innovative tools that help our partners build and deliver Cloud 2 solutions that are social, mobile and open. That makes us incredibly proud to receive this honor."
Salesforce’s ever-growing cloud computing partner program was enhanced last year through its cloud platform-as-a-service, Force.com. Enabling companies to easily develop and deliver innovative Cloud 2 business applications, Salesforce provides instant social, mobile, and open capabilities.
