Will Briggs of Arctic Wolf Networks Recognized as 2019 CRN® Channel Chief

February 25, 2019

SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 25, 2019--Arctic Wolf Networks (AWN), a leading security operations center (SOC)-as-a-service company, announced today that CRN , a brand of The Channel Company, has named Will Briggs, Director of Channel Sales, to its prestigious list of 2019 Channel Chiefs. The top IT channel leaders included on this list continually strive to drive growth and revenue in their organization through their channel partners.

Each of the 2019 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated exceptional leadership, vision and commitment to their channel partner programs. Channel Chief honorees are selected by CRN’s editorial staff as a result of their professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the channel partner community, and strategies for driving future growth and innovation.

As Arctic Wolf’s Director of Channel Sales, Briggs leverages his experience by building award-winning channel programs to design and scale the company’s MSP and Resale program and partnerships, and continues to drive the channel-first sales strategy. This year, along with his dedicated channel sales and marketing team, Briggs also launched the Arctic Wolf Partner Portal including the on-demand Arctic Wolf Training Program.

“The achievement marks a notable year of growth for the Arctic Wolf, specifically in the channel where our revenue tripled with the addition of more than 200 security-minded and cloud-focused MSP and Resale partners,” Briggs said. “The Arctic Wolf Partner Portal is the epicenter of channel recruitment, deal registration, opportunity management, sales and marketing enablement and on-demand partner training. Our partners enjoy a single go-to resource to manage their business and relationship with Arctic Wolf and consume information in the way that works best for them.”

In addition to channel momentum, Arctic Wolf more than doubled its year-over-year customer growth rate in conjunction with a recent Series C funding round of $45 million that expanded offerings and jump-started company growth. Additionally, in December 2018 Arctic Wolf acquired RootSecure, a leader in advanced cybersecurity risk assessment, to improve their ability to assess and manage mid-market enterprises’ cybersecurity risk and improve customers’ overall cybersecurity posture.

“The individuals on CRN’s 2019 Channel Chiefs list deserve special recognition for their contribution and support in the development of robust partner programs, innovative business strategies, and significant influence to the overall health of the IT channel,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “We applaud each Channel Chief’s remarkable record of accomplishments and look forward to following their continued success.”

The 2019 CRN Channel Chiefs list, including the 50 Most Influential Channel Chiefs, is featured online at www.crn.com/channelchiefs and will appear in the February 2019 issue of CRN.
