Carbonite™ is proud to announce Sabine Schilg and Katie Popowski are among the “CRN 2019 Women of the Channel” winners.

Schilg and Popowski are among the women whose channel expertise and vision have been deemed worthy of special recognition by CRN. Both women were also named to the list in 2018.

Schilg, Vice President of EMEA Sales, said the newly enhanced Carbonite Partner Program and an expanded product portfolio marks a turning point for the company. “We have an expanded Data Protection Platform and more resources than ever focused on our partners,” Schilg said. “The success of our partners, and their customers, is paramount to Carbonite. There’s never been a better time to partner with Carbonite, and I’m so proud to be able to say that.”

This year, CRN is honoring more than 700 women on its annual list. “CRN’s 2019 Women of the Channel list honors 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.”

For Schilg, Carbonite’s expanded portfolio is key to her success. “We launched a set of new products to enrich our end-to-end data protection platform. It aligns the right technology for each system so we can help partners lower costs and simplify business continuity. It’s our goal to ensure nobody overpays to protect less critical systems, or leaves systems that are essential to the business without enough protection.”

Partner education is where Popowksi specializes, she said, especially cross-sell opportunities. “I’m always looking for ways for Carbonite Partners to deepen their engagement with customers.”
