The annual list honors outstanding female executives across vendor channel organizations, distributors, solution providers and other women prominently involved in the IT channel ecosystem for their successes and the far-reaching impact they are having on the technology industry going forward.

This year’s Women of the Channel were carefully reviewed and selected by the editors of CRN based on their accomplishments and the influence they wield over the technology channel.

“These executives have made a lasting mark on the industry, expanding the breadth of influence in the technology channel,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “We congratulate the Women of the Channel, and celebrate their innovative contributions and commitment to the IT channel community.”

Dee Zepf led a major initiative over the last year to launch Continuity247, a fully managed backup platform specifically designed for the channel.

She was also honored in the 7th Annual MSPmentor 250 by Penton Technology Group. Dee is chartered with ensuring Continuum’s products and services allow Continuum’s MSP partners to be the most profitable in the industry.
