Earlier this week, CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, named PDI’s Bethany Allee to its 2021 list of Channel Chiefs. The annual CRN® Channel Chiefs recognizes leading IT channel vendor executives who continually demonstrate outstanding leadership, influence, innovation and growth. Allee joined PDI following its recent acquisition of Cybera where she led the company’s marketing efforts, with a particular emphasis on growing its channel program.

Like Allee, this year’s 2021 Channel Chiefs are prominent leaders who have influenced the IT channel with cutting-edge strategies, programs and partnerships. All honorees were selected by CRN’s editorial staff based on their dedication, industry prestige and exceptional accomplishments as channel advocates. Key accomplishments that were among the reasons Allee stood out included having grown the Cybera channel program from 36 partners to a robust ecosystem with over 336 partners in just 12 months, redesigned and launched an enhanced partner portal, and completed 16 sell-to programs and 13 sell-through programs.
