Cloudera has impressive female leaders with strategic vision

 May 10, 2022

Cloudera celebrates five Cloudera women - Valaretha Brown, Tracey Jones, Natascha Lee, Roisin Ryan, Rachel Tuller - who are named to CRN's annual Women of the Channel list for 2022. They are recognized as female leaders for their strategic vision, thought leadership, and channel advocacy.

CRN honored the women whose channel expertise, vision, advocacy and mentorship are helping drive the channel and are deserving of recognition in its annual Women of the Channel showcase.

Successful women in leadership

CRN honored nearly 1,400 women whose channel expertise and vision are deserving of recognition. The Power 100 is culled from the ranks of CRN’s Women of the Channel and spotlights the female executives at vendors and distributors whose insight and influence help drive channel success.

Of the impressive group, an elite selection of executives were named by the CRN editorial staff to The Power 100 list. This list highlights the women that are bringing their unique brand of leadership to their vendor and distribution organizations. These high achievers come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences and are no stranger to combatting business challenges.

The IT landscape is changing, as are customer buying behaviors thanks to brand-new trends such as hybrid work, cloud and the return to the office. It’s safe to say businesses and channel partners alike are looking for new, innovative solutions from their technology vendors.

Distributors and vendors are feeling the heat, and the women of the Power 100 have been working tirelessly to collaborate with customers and partners to address their needs, all while working hard alongside their teams to beat out the competition.
