Chicago, IL, May 12, 2020 — RedLegg announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Laura Hees, RedLegg Partner, to its esteemed 2020 Women of the Channel list.

Recognizing the unique strengths, vision, and achievements of a select group of women, this prestigious, annual list acknowledges channel leaders who are blazing a trail for future generations. These women are from all areas of the IT ecosystem, including technology vendors, distributors, solution providers, and other IT organizations.

CRN® editorial team selects the honorees to celebrate a list of exceptional women acclaimed for their contributions to channel advocacy, growth, thought leadership, and dedication to the IT channel.

Whether it's an Iron Man event or a unique cybersecurity challenge, Laura is your go-to for getting things done. Armed with 22+ years of enterprise service, infrastructure and security experience, and a customer-centric perspective, Laura has a penchant for making even the most complex projects simple and successful. Laura holds a degree in Kinesiology at the University of Michigan and leads RedLegg's growth in sales and partnership opportunities, specifically serving VAR channel partners. Laura is passionate about privacy and protecting data.

“CRN’s 2020 Women of the Channel list recognizes an accomplished group of influential women leaders whose strategic vision and unique achievements accelerate channel growth through cultivated partnerships, innovative thought leadership, and unwavering dedication to the IT channel,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “We are proud to honor them for their accomplishments and contributions to driving channel success.”

The key is to make it simple, fun, and consumable all while keeping customers’ best interests at the heart of it all,” Laura says.
