We’re thrilled to announce that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has once again recognized our own Alex Ruslyakov as one of its 2023 “Channel Chiefs.” This honor reflects the incredible growth and momentum of Acronis’ partner program and Ruslyakov’s impressive leadership in driving the team forward.

A leader in partner success

Each year, a panel of CRN editors identify the top executives at IT channel vendors who have demonstrated continued expertise, influence and innovation. The resulting list of Channel Chiefs honors these leaders and is a powerful resource for solution providers looking for the best vendors to work with.

CRN Channel Chiefs are influential executives who consistently support, promote and execute effective channel partner programs and strategies. Leaders are chosen based on their record of business innovation and their dedication to the partner community.

For Ruslyakov, this honor is a recognition of the trust and commitment that Acronis shares with its partner community.

“I am humbled to be featured in CRN’s Channel Chief’s List for the second year in a row,” says Ruslyakov. “When our partners succeed, so do we. Our mission is not only to support our partners but also to become an extended business development unit for them, leveraging our leading position in the market and extensive knowledge we’ve collected over years in selling software solutions and services.”

Fueling your momentum through innovation

Over the past year, Acronis has focused heavily on improving partner services and programs.

The Acronis #CyberFit Partner Program saw a variety of updates and enhancements in 2022, including:

  • Simplified requirements for joining
  • Benefits extended to zero-commit service providers
  • New, unique programs and promotions for all partner types

More than 3,500 new service providers joined the program last year — a testament to Ruslyakov’s partner-first approach to leadership, and his team’s effectiveness in helping MSPs accelerate their growth.

The #TeamUp program has also seen extraordinary growth, with 15 new sports partnerships in the past year. Since its launch in February 2021, the program has helped MSPs to deliver world-class cyber protection solutions in defense of the world’s most preeminent sports organizations.

Additionally, Acronis offers financial incentives to help service providers invest in cutting-edge technologies. The Competitive Displacement Program enables MSPs to affordably migrate clients to Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud with a 100% rebate on the Acronis platform through the end of their existing vendor contract, while the Sales Development Funds (SDF) Program assists MSPs in hitting their growth objectives with joint marketing investments.
