EASLEY, SC – (MARKET WIRE )- July 27, 2010 – Computer Software Innovations, Inc. (OTC BB: CSWI) today announced that Nancy Hedrick, CEO, has been recognized by Everything Channel’s CRN Magazine as one of the top Women of the Channel. CRN’s annual list recognizes female executives across vendors’ channel organizations, distributors and solution providers for their accomplishments over the past year and the far-reaching impact they are having on the technology industry going forward. This year’s Women of the Channel were chosen by the editors of CRN magazine based on their achievements as executives and the amount of influence they wield over the technology channel.
As CEO, Nancy works with the various CSI teams to expand the offerings within the segments of the business, including core on-premise technologies, cloud solutions, identity management solutions and financial management software. Many of these CSI solutions encompass products provided by CSI’s channel partners.
“We greatly value our channel partners. Without them, we could not provide our customers with the robust solutions that we offer today,“ stated Ms. Hedrick. “I am honored to be selected as one of the top women of the channel by the CRN team.”
“Women hold many prominent executive positions at vendor organizations, distributors and solution provider organizations, providing critical insight and influence when it comes to technology and the channel. We want to honor and congratulate these women for their contributions to the industry and their respective organizations,” said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, Everything Channel.
“Nancy has been both a motivating and stabilizing force in expanding and managing the CSI organization from its founding in 1990 as a software provider, with only a handful of customers in a small one-state region, to its position as an award-winning, leading provider of both software and hardware-based technology solutions to more than 1,000 customers throughout the Southeast, expanding nationally and with a small international presence. CSI’s successes, including obtaining a listing on the VAR500 with the support of our Channel Partners, and having gone public since its founding, are a direct result of her leadership. The CSI team is proud of the accomplishment and congratulates Nancy on this award. It is well-deserved!” said David Dechant, CFO.
A special feature of the Women of the Channel is in the July issue of CRN Magazine and expanded coverage will be featured online at www.crn.com.
