Sharp’s announced Saundra Merollo and Mehryn Corrigan have been honoured as CRN’s 2019 Women of the Channel, joining Konica Minolta’s Laura Blackmer and Patty O’Brian of Epson America.
Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America, a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation, announced that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Saundra Merollo and Mehryn Corrigan to its 2019 Women of the Channel list.
The leaders placed on this annual list reflect all areas of the IT channel ecosystem; representing technology suppliers, distributors, solution providers, and other IT organisations.
Every woman is recognised for her contributions to channel advocacy, channel growth and visionary leadership. CRN editors choose the list from a multitude of channel leadership applicants and select the final honourees based on their professional accomplishments, demonstrated expertise, and ongoing dedication to the IT channel.
Sharp explained that as an associate director, Corrigan has advanced Sharp’s smart office strategy by building strategic alliances and channel programmes that support this critical corporate initiative. With the launch of several smart office bundles, Mehryn brought together industry leaders to create best-in-class channel solutions. Her continued success has been marked by a deep understanding of channel partner needs and the ability to bring together alliance partners to create unique offerings.
With more than 15 years of experience in the technology, integration and audio visual industry, Merollo has accelerated Sharp’s success and stature by training and educating partners about market requirements, user needs and the value Sharp technologies deliver. With her pulse on industry changes and ability to distill technical information into easily understandable terms, her training often speeds audiences toward technical certifications and helps solidify Sharp’s thought-leader status.
“CRN’s 2019 Women of the Channel list honours influential leaders who are accelerating channel growth through mutually-beneficial partnerships, incredible leadership, strategic vision, and unique contributions in their field,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “This accomplished group of leaders is driving channel success and we are proud to honor their achievements.”
“We are fortunate to have not one, but two, amazing professionals recognised as Women of the Channel,” said Mike Marusic, President and CEO, Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America. “Saundra and Mehryn possess incredible leadership skills and work ethic, with each bringing her own skillset to change how we think and work at Sharp. We’re proud to have them as part of our team.”
Saundra Merollo and Mehryn Corrigan join Konica Minolta’s Laura Blackmer and Patty O’Brian of Epson America who earlier this month were also named on CRN’s 2019 Women of the Channel list.
