Denise Ahrens, Andrea Jaime, Annia Rodriguez of Synopsys Software Integrity Group named to CRN’s 2023 Women of the Channel Awards list.
Denise Ahrens, global channel marketing director; Andrea Jaime, senior global channel enablement manager; and Annia Rodriguez, head of partner operations and programs have been named to CRN’s Women of the Channel list for 2023. Every year, CRN recognizes women from vendor, distributor, and solution provider organizations whose expertise and vision are leaving a noticeable and commendable mark on the technology industry.
The CRN Women of the Channel list honors exceptional women for their strategic vision, thought leadership, and channel advocacy that impacts growth and innovation in the channel. The annual Women of the Channel list is the official guide to the top female leaders of the IT channel, and Synopsys is proud that three of our female leaders are named for 2023.
To honor their achievements, we asked the three women to share their thoughts about making the list, and about their work this past year at Synopsys.
I am incredibly proud and beyond humbled to share this honor with so many colleagues in the industry. It is great to be recognized for doing something you love. Working with channel partners and marketing teams is my passion, and this award just solidifies Synopsys’ investment and commitment to our partners and partner program. This year alone, Synopsys was represented at demand generation events in collaboration with our partners in 32 countries. Adding the MDF program for Synopsys partners was a primary driver of our channel marketing success so far in 2023.
This award culminates my efforts this year with the launch of the new partner training program and enablement program, including a persona-based training model for our partners. It’s an honor to be recognized for these efforts.
This recognition means a great deal to me because it not only highlights all the work that the whole team has been busy implementing for the past two years, but it shows our partners that we are doing everything we can to continue to support them. It also means that I get to show off my 6-year-old’s photography skills, since he was the one who offered to take my picture.
Official coverage for the 2023 CRN Women of the Channel list will begin May 8 at CRN.com/WOTC. Some of the honorees will also be featured in the June issue of CRN Magazine, published in print and online at CRN.com/Magazine.
