INFINIDAT Channel Executive Mitch Diodato Named 2019 CRN Channel Chief
INFINIDAT, the market’s leading independent provider of enterprise-class data storage solutions, announced today that Mitch Diodato, Head of Channel Sales for North America, has been recognized as a 2019 CRN® Channel Chiefs. CRN Channel Chiefs represent the top leaders in the IT channel and are chosen as a result of their exceptional leadership, vision and commitment to their channel partner programs, their professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the channel partner community and strategies for driving future growth and innovation.
“The individuals on CRN’s 2019 Channel Chiefs list deserve special recognition for their contribution and support in the development of robust partner programs, innovative business strategies, and significant influence to the overall health of the IT channel,” said Bob Skelley, CEO at The Channel Company. “We applaud each Channel Chief’s remarkable record of accomplishments and look forward to following their continued success.”
With more than twenty years of experience in the IT and storage industry, Diodato joined INFINIDAT in 2018 to further develop INFINIDAT’s growing and maturing partner channel program. Over the last year, he has taken a data-informed approach to better engage with existing partners and expand the overall program – driving revenue growth and helping INFINIDAT continue to evolve its solution set to better meet the needs of both customers and partners. As a direct result of his commitment and strong strategic plan, channel sales now account for a majority of all INFINIDAT sales.
“It is a huge honor to be recognized as a 2019 Channel Chief. It is truly a testament to the hard work of the entire INFINIDAT team and to the strong partnerships that we have built. Without them, and without those partners working alongside us every step of the way, this would not have been possible,” said Mitch Diodato, Head of Channel Sales for North America. “INFINIDAT’s clear focus on the needs of the customers and partners – rather than on its own transformation and corporate drivers – is unique. I cannot wait to see how we build on the current program in the coming year.”
INFINIDAT’s channel program is driven by its world-class enterprise channel partners and customers. Through programs such as Capacity on Demand, INFINIDAT enables companies to effectively drive transformation of their IT strategies by cost-effectively deploying petabyte-scale storage solutions. Aligned with each partner’s contribution and dedication to the program, Mitch and the INFINIDAT channel team have been able to grow the program while driving significant customer success.
“We have seen incredible growth in our partnership with INFINIDAT over the last year and a half, more than doubling our business year over year,” said Darren Gourley, VP Infrastructure Solutions at Sirius Computer Solutions. “Our field sales and engineering teams have built direct relationships with INFINIDAT that allow Sirius to act as the trusted advisor to our end clients by illustrating the INFINIDAT value of speed, reliability and cost savings. I look forward to the progression of the INFINIDAT technology and channel program in 2019 and beyond.”
“We’re thrilled to see Mitch receive this recognition from CRN and congratulate him on all the work he does to ensure his partners’ success,” said Bob Elliot, VP Storage Sales at Mainline Information Systems. “Working with Mitch, his Channel team, and all the folks at INFINIDAT has been an exceptional experience for us and our customers. INFINIDAT understands what we’re trying to accomplish for our mutual customers, and they work hard to help us increase our opportunities in this rapidly changing market.”
