Annual Award Recognizes Elite Women Leaders in Solution Provider Organizations

Chantilly, VA May 9, 2018 – Copper River Technologies, a leader in providing advanced IT solutions and services to both Public Sector and Enterprise organizations, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Jennifer Keating, President of Copper River Technologies, to its prestigious list of 2018 Women of the Channel for the second year in a row. The executives who comprise this annual list span the IT channel, representing vendors, distributors, solution providers and other organizations that figure prominently in the channel ecosystem. Each is recognized for her outstanding leadership, vision and unique role in driving channel growth and innovation.

CRN’s editorial team selects Women of the Channel honorees based on their professional accomplishments, demonstrated expertise and ongoing dedication to the channel.

As a technology industry veteran, Ms. Jennifer Keating holds over 20 years’ experience focused on federal government contracting. Officially joining the Copper River Family of Companies in October 2015, Ms. Keating served as Vice President of Sales for Copper River Information Technologies (Copper River IT) where she had responsibility for all of sales, marketing, engineering and partner management. During her tenure within this capacity, Ms. Keating consistently demonstrated her exceptional leadership aptitude and forward-thinking business approach which led to the increase in revenue attainment, expanded partner alliances and overall growth for Copper River IT. These accomplishments led to the transition to her current position as President of the newest Copper River Family of Companies – Copper River Technologies. Previous to her current tenure with Copper River, Ms. Keating served as Director of Sales for CDW’s Mid-Atlantic commercial business, as well as Director of Sales for CDWG’s Federal Civilian business. Ms. Keating’s contributions continue outside of the industry through her extensive work and leadership with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, where she currently serves on the Board of Trustees.

“These extraordinary executives support every aspect of the channel ecosystem, from technical innovation to marketing to business development, working tirelessly to keep the channel moving into the future,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “They are developing fresh go-to-market strategies, strengthening the channel’s network of partnerships and building creative new IT solutions, among many other contributions. We congratulate all the 2017 Women of the Channel on their stellar accomplishments and look forward to their future success.”
