industry leader to expand its international footprint in 2007 to include Asia
Pacific and Europe.
    "Under Mike's leadership, N-able's sales team really raised the bar and
set a new standard of excellence for growth, innovation and partner enablement
in 2007," says Gavin Garbutt, president and CEO of N-able Technologies. "Mike
is truly one of a kind and his enthusiasm for ensuring the success of our
partners and growing the business is contagious. He is a channel advocate
through and through."
    This is the sixth consecutive year that CRN has developed the Channel
Chiefs list and the second year in a row Mike Cullen has been named to it. Top
Channel Chiefs were chosen based on criteria that include policy and program
innovations made during the past year, the amount of revenue their company
generates through partners, their willingness to speak out publicly on behalf
of the channel, and the number of years they have dedicated to channel
    "Successful channel programs and strategies are what fuel the growing
solution provider ecosystem," says Dan Dignam, vice-president and publisher of
CMP Channel. "We applaud each of this year's CRN Channel Chiefs for their
efforts in building and advocating the industry's most successful channel
programs and strategies."
    "It's an honor to be named one of the IT industry's top Channel Chiefs,"
says Cullen. "We brought home a record year in 2007 and for that I want to
thank the entire N-able team, as well as our partners. There's tremendous
opportunity on the horizon and we're ready for another great year of
innovation, robust growth and successful partnerships."
