Washington D.C., May 20, 2019 – Thycotic, a provider of privileged access management (PAM) solutions to 10,000 organizations worldwide, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Becca Stucky, Senior Director of Demand Generation & Programs, Katie McCroskey, Director of Knowledge Management & Training, and Kara Trovato, Strategic National Partner Account Manager, to its prestigious 2019 Women of the Channel list. The leaders on this annual list are from all areas of the IT channel ecosystem – representing technology suppliers, distributors, solution providers, and other IT organizations. Each is recognized for her contributions to channel advocacy, channel growth and visionary leadership.

CRN editors choose the list from a multitude of channel leadership applicants and select the final honorees based on their professional accomplishments, demonstrated expertise, and ongoing dedication to the IT channel.

As a demand gen leader, Stucky works to equip the channel community with best-in-class marketing assets, so they can leverage successful tested campaigns to engage their customers through the journey of learning about and evaluating Thycotic. Her biggest channel accomplishment over the last year was to help onboard IBM Security as a strategic OEM. IBM approached Thycotic looking for a PAM solution that would meet the needs of their complex enterprise customers. They had determined we were the best fit and wanted to provide a fully branded IBM experience for IBM Security with Secret Server, powered by Thycotic’s technology.

Over the past year, McCroskey has successfully enabled hundreds of channel partners through E-learning, onsite custom training and thought leadership presentations. She empowers partners to understand our products, market position and selling strategies. She has been responsible for partner training globally and her role includes everything from creating technical or sales content and conducting training webinars; designing and building technical, on-demand E-Learning training courses; and customized onsite training session for partners and partners customers. She excels at taking complex security and technical concepts and converting them into digestible training modules that empower and enable our partners. Her programs educate and empower partners, key influencers and end users to connect with the Thycotic channel.

Trovato is the newest Thycotic recipient of WOTC and arrives with an extensive track record of achievements especially on new partner recruitment and delivery of big revenue numbers when working with high performing IT solution providers who specialize in the cyber-security & disaster recovery. Within the Thycotic channel ecosystem, Kara is the quintessential “Superwoman” driving national and regional partner accounts to attain a doubling in revenues year-on-year with record breaking thresholds in deal registration activity and extensive field marketing engagements which include roadshows, thought leadership summits and security best practice’s workshops. Empowering her clients to understand industry best practices has yielded highly qualified opportunities with and through our partners.

“CRN’s 2019 Women of the Channel list honors influential leaders who are accelerating channel growth through mutually-beneficial partnerships, incredible leadership, strategic vision, and unique contributions in their field,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “This accomplished group of leaders is driving channel success and we are proud to honor their achievements.”

“We are thrilled to be able to announce that Thycotic has received three recipient winners for CRN’s Women of the Channel award and to be able to recognize them publically to their peers and partner communities with whom they work so closely,” said Bob Gagnon, Vice President of Channel Sales. “They’ve been crucial in serving their partners and helping them grow through demand gen assistance, education and sales enablement. All three together embody the DNA that is the Thycotic Channel.”
