Englewood, Colo. - February 25, 2009 - MX Logic, the world's largest independent managed email and Web security provider, today announced that Pete Khanna, president and COO, has been named a 2009 Channel Chief by Everything Channel's CRN.
Channel Chiefs are recognized as influential executives who consistently defend, promote and execute effective channel partner programs and strategies. Robert C. DeMarzo, SVP Editorial Director, Everything Channel explained:
"Effective channel executives consistently ensure that the Channel's voice is heard when strategic decisions are being made and continually nurture mutually profitable relationships. This year's winners are strong channel advocates and we applaud them for their successful partner programs and strategies."
Under Khanna's leadership, MX Logic achieved record growth in 2008, adding a million new users and nearly doubling the number of partners selling its services. The company also moved closer to its goal of driving 90-plus percent of its sales through channel partners. Nearly 65 percent of the company's 2008 revenue came from the channel, up from 45 percent in 2007.
In 2008, MX Logic also continued to expand its award-winning PartnerFocus program. The company dedicated a product development team to build partner-specific features into its line of SaaS-based email and Web security and archiving solutions. It also expanded its Marketing and Sales On Demand programs, providing partners with more tools and resources to help increase their sales. Finally, MX Logic gave partners more high-value, low-cost services to sell, adding Perimeter Defense, a new Message Archiving service, and four new comprehensive email and Web security bundles.
MX Logic has repeatedly been recognized for its commitment to the channel. Its PartnerFocus channel program earned several industry awards throughout the year including being named a Gold 5 Star Channel Program Vendor in VARBusiness Magazine's annual Partner Programs Guide. MX Logic was also voted a "Best Channel Vendor" by channel readers of Business Solutions Magazine.
