EMC Execs Dominate Annual “Women of the Channel”

The success of any organization can be almost entirely attributed to its people.

And more specifically, its leadership. At EMC, we have been blessed with tremendous leadership in the forms of Joe Tucci, David Goulden, Erin McSweeney, and Bill Scannell, and others. Building upon our outstanding leadership, it gives me tremendous pleasure to call out the nine—yes, NINE—EMC executives recently named to CRN’s prestigious 2016 Women of the Channel list.

This annual list recognizes those female channel executives whose vision and actions are driving growth and innovation. To have so many of our own celebrated as channel power players is a testament to each woman’s individual excellence as well as our collective strength. After all, we are only as good as our people; only as strong as our leaders.
