CRN Channel Chiefs are selected by the CRN editorial team based on channel experience, program innovations, channel-driven revenue and public support for the importance of IT channel sales.

This marks the sixth consecutive year Mr. Stegner has been selected as one of CRN's Channel Chiefs. For 2014, he was selected for expanding SYNNEX' Varnex Community to partners in Japan, in addition to already established communities in the U.S. and Canada. He enhanced Varnex membership benefits based on input from the community to create deeper value and return and enhanced PROMOCentral, SYNNEX' application for managing SPIFFs, SYNNEX exclusive rebates and manufacturer national rebates.

Mr. Jow was selected for continuing to drive growth of the SYNNEX Solv practices, technology solutions that address complex business problems for vendors and reseller partners. He implemented new strategies for SYNNEX' Varnex Community to help partners grow and add value to their businesses. Jow was also responsible for making significant enhancements to SYNNEX' SMB teams, allowing for more meaningful engagement with partners in the small-to-medium business space.

Mr. Dow was selected for successfully launching SYNNEX' MOBILITYSolv group in April 2013, enabling resellers to offer best-in-class end-to-end enterprise mobility solutions. Since its inception, Dow has executed MOBILITYSolv's go-to-market strategy through value-added services for connected people, work forces, devices and network solutions and partnered with carriers and OEMs, facilitating mobile device choice with activation, device management, tools and services. Dow's connect, move and control strategy continues to gain traction and leverage best-of-breed vendors to keep workforces connected and productive.
