Xirrus’ Hayley Tabor Named as One of CRN Magazine’s Top Women of the Channel
Xirrus, the leader in high performance wireless networking, today announced that Hayley Tabor, Vice President of Worldwide Sales, has been recognized by Everything Channel’s CRN Magazine as one of the top Women of the Channel in 2011. This annual list recognizes female executives for their accomplishments over the past year and the far-reaching impact they are having on the technology industry going forward. This year’s Women of the Channel were chosen by the editors of CRN Magazine from a field of vendor channel organizations, distributors and solution providers.
With experience in building effective sales coverage and vertical market models as former Vice President of U.S. Enterprise Sales at Juniper Networks, Tabor has implemented an effective channel strategy for Xirrus and added new professionals to the Xirrus sales team to open up additional geographies and routes. As a result, she has helped to transform the company from a direct sales organization to a blended direct and channel business, while expanding its presence in the global wireless networking market. In addition, Tabor has driven aggressive growth through the channel and increased market share in key geographies for Xirrus, such as APJ and EMEA.
“This year’s Women of the Channel list honors those female executives who epitomize success within the IT channel – a traditionally male-centric industry. Whether they come from tier-one vendors, VAR500 solution providers or just bring a bevy of channel experience that cannot be ignored, the 2011 Women of the channel list will recognize the most influential women of the channel based on their overall achievements, and their influence in the technology industry,” said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, Everything Channel.
“Marked by significant regional expansion in APJ as well as EMEA, our business continues to grow internationally with the channel expertise Hayley brings to the company,” said Dirk Gates, CEO and founder of Xirrus. “We are proud to have Hayley recognized by CRN Magazine as one of the top Women of the Channel. With Hayley on board, Xirrus is poised to expand rapid growth globally with commitment to providing customers and channel partners the best Wi-Fi solutions in the wireless networking market.”
