September 29, 2020

Brother International Corporation announced that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognised Stephanie DeSanto, Senior Partner Programme Development Manager, as one of the IT channel’s 100 People You Don’t Know But Should for 2020.

This annual list pays tribute to the below-the-radar best and brightest who power the channel every day. Based on feedback from leading solution providers and industry executives, the CRN editorial team uses the 100 People You Don’t Know But Should list to draw attention to those outstanding channel players who may not be household names, but still work tirelessly to keep their partners thriving and the IT channel growing.

“We have consistently been impressed by Stephanie’s work here at Brother in providing value for our Brother Authorised Partners, whether that be in the form of channel programmes or the new Partner Portal,” said Greg Shipmon, Director, B2B Channel Development, Brother International. “We are so pleased to see her recognised by others outside our organisation for her hard work and the contributions she makes to our partner programme.”

Stephanie has over a decade of channel experience and previously managed the Brother Authorised Partner Channel Account Team. In her new role as Senior Partner Programme Development Manager, she focuses on designing, implementing and launching channel programmes for the Gold Brother Authorised Partners and leading the implementation of a new partner portal and all of its connecting components to make it simple and easy for the Brother Authorised Partners to leverage Brother’s support programmes.

“Managing a successful channel partner programme today calls for a small army of people, but only a few Channel Chiefs tend to enjoy widespread recognition,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “With the 100 People You Don’t Know But Should, we are delighted to shine a spotlight on an exceptional group of unsung team members, giving them some of the acclaim they deserve for their indispensable contributions to channel success.”

The 100 People You Don’t Know But Should will be featured in the October issue of CRN Magazine and can be found online at
