Novacoast's Janice Newlon Named to CRN Influencers List
CRN’s editorial team selects Women of the Channel honorees based on their professional accomplishments, demonstrated expertise and ongoing dedication to the channel. The Power 30 Solution Providers belong to an exclusive group drawn from this larger list: women leaders in solution-provider organizations whose vision and influence are key drivers of their companies’ success and help move the entire IT channel forward.
This is Newlon’s eighth selection to CRN’s Women of the Channel list and her first in the Power 30. In addition to running the administrative side of Novacoast’s business with the sure hand that comes from decades of IT industry experience, Newlon handles mergers and acquisitions and the company’s RFP process. For years she served as CFO and has regularly represented Novacoast at industry events and conventions.
“This accomplished group of leaders is steadily guiding the IT channel into a prosperous new era of services-led business models and deep, strategic partnerships,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s 2018 Women of the Channel list honors executives who are driving channel progress through a number of achievements—exemplary partner programs, innovative product development and marketing, effective team-building, visionary leadership and accelerated sales growth—as well as advocacy for the next generation of women channel executives.”
Novacoast CEO Paul Anderson said his company could never have grown so quickly or earned such a stellar reputation without the tireless efforts of Janice Newlon. “In the services business, success in the field is directly tied to the organization, efficiency and ingenuity of the support behind the scenes,” said Anderson. “Janice Newlon has been with Novacoast from the very beginning, has had a hand in guiding us at every stage, and her leadership and efficiency has earned time and again the gratitude and respect of everyone in the company. I can honestly say we couldn’t have done this without her.”
The 2018 Women of the Channel and Power 30 Solution Provider lists will be featured in the June issue of CRN Magazine and online at www.CRN.com/wotc.
