CrowdStrike’s Matthew Polly, Michael Rogers and Matt Kelly
acknowledged for channel partner leadership across the industry

SUNNYVALE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CrowdStrike® Inc., the leader in cloud-delivered endpoint protection,
announced today that CRN®,
a brand of The
Channel Company
, has named Matthew Polly, vice president of
Worldwide Alliances, Channels and Business Development, Michael Rogers,
vice president of Americas Alliances, and Matt Kelly, director of Public
Sector Partner Sales, North America, to its prestigious list of 2019
Channel Chiefs. The top IT channel leaders included on this list
continually strive to drive growth and revenue in their organization
through their channel partners.

CrowdStrike’s awardees have demonstrated exceptional leadership, vision,
and commitment to the company’s channel partner program. Channel Chief
honorees are selected by CRN’s editorial staff as a result of their
professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the
channel partner community, and strategies for driving future growth and
innovation.

“This validation from CRN speaks to the success of CrowdStrike’s
partner-first approach as a fundamental part of our business model,”
said Matthew Polly, vice president of Worldwide Business Development and
Channels. “Michael Rogers, Matt Kelly and myself are thrilled to be
named to this prestigious list. We are dedicated to actively growing
CrowdStrike’s global partner network through a combination of
initiatives and enablement tools to better serve our global customer
base.”

The Elevate
Partner Program
encompasses a “whole-ecosystem” approach based on
six paths to partner engagement and profitability — Channel, Technology
Alliances, MSSPs, OEMs, CrowdStrike Platform, and Cloud Procurements.

Under the leadership of Polly, Rogers and Kelly, partner relationships
in both the private and public sectors have been strengthened through a
variety of enablement tools and programs. Most recently, CrowdStrike announced
new program tiers
of its Elevate Partner Program. The evolved
partner program allows reseller partners to further accelerate sales and
offer partners additional revenue streams through partner-provided
services, solutions, and other opportunities. CrowdStrike also announced
a historic
partnership with Dell and Secureworks
to deliver endpoint security
to enterprise and mid-markets on a massive scale.

“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,
chief executive officer of The Channel Company. “We applaud each Channel
Chief’s remarkable record of accomplishments and look forward to
following their continued success.”

Channel Chiefs, is featured online at www.crn.com/channelchiefs
