There’s a reason why Acronis Cyber Protection Solutions earn the endorsement and accolades of analysts and communities throughout the IT channel. The Acronis team is made up of some of the most dedicated, visionary and influential figures in the industry. Each brings their expertise and experience building solutions, services and support for modern IT channel businesses to the technology they create and provide.

Today, we’re honored to announce that two of Acronis’ cyber protection leaders – Amy Luby, Chief Channel Evangelist, and Alex Ruslyakov, Channel Chief – have been recognized as members of CRN’s prestigious 2022 Channel Chiefs list.

“CRN’s 2022 Channel Chiefs recognition is given exclusively to the foremost channel executives who consistently design, promote, and execute effective partner programs and strategies,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “We’re thrilled to recognize the tireless work and unwavering commitment these honorees put into fostering outstanding business innovation and building strong partner programs to drive channel engagement and success.”

Each year, a panel of CRN editors select top IT channel vendor executives who continually demonstrate expertise, influence and innovation in channel leadership. These honorees are chosen after careful consideration of their stature within the industry, their dedication to advancing the IT channel and their accomplishments as channel advocates. This year, Luby and Ruslyakov join 48 others honored by the celebrated channel news source.

“I’m beyond honored to be included in this years’ award and recognized for our team efforts as well to build out our global community,” Luby said. “Acronis cannot exist without our partners, and it’s our job to know our partners well and to deliver on what they need. To be recognized by CRN is a testament to the partnership we are building together. Thank you, CRN and thank you to our global partners who trust us to go to market together to protect small businesses from cybercriminals.”

Ruslyakov echoed these sentiments and considered the award as recognition of the trust and commitment that Acronis share with its partner community. “We take great pride in our relationship with partners and their fast growth with Acronis,” Ruslyakov said. “At Acronis, we put our partners first, striving to do whatever is needed to deliver the safest and most cost-efficient cyber solutions available on the market, and we’re thrilled to be recognized for this devotion to our partners."

Acronis’ partner community built for success

Acronis has demonstrated a fierce devotion to building and supporting a IT channel partner community designed to achieve success in the modern world. Speaking at the first Acronis #CyberFit Summit of 2021, CEO Patrick Pulvermueller cemented his personal commitment to this goal. Delivering his keynote address to thousands of MSPs, MSSPs, distributors, resellers and more, Pulvermueller pledged to “listen to all of you to learn what you need to be successful and deliver cyber protection with the power of you.”

This commitment has been central to all of the work the Luby, Ruslyakov and the rest of the Acronis team has delivered since. And it’s having a clear impact on the success of Acronis partners.

“The partner program at Acronis is a key fundamental to the success of our company,” said Cramer Snuggs, Founder and CEO of Cascade Technologies. “From MDF funds to jumpstart marketing initiatives, to sales and leadership training by some of the leading industry experts, Acronis constantly strives to provide us with the resources we need to succeed.”
