CRN Celebrates the Up-and-Comers of the IT Channel

Ashburn, VA, November 2, 2021 – Clearpath Solutions Group is proud to announce that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has chosen Felix Vargas, CTO, and Chris Emery, VP of Marketing, as two of the 2021 Next-Gen Solution Provider Leaders. This list honors the exceptional individuals who are key contributors to driving growth and strategic direction for the companies they work for today and are poised to be tomorrow’s channel innovators.

The second-annual Next-Gen Solution Provider Leaders list includes rising star executives, managers, and directors, 40 years of age or younger, who have demonstrated clear leadership qualities in their roles at integrators, VARs, MSPs, and other IT solution provider organizations.

Felix’s focus as CTO has been on setting Clearpath’s strategic product roadmap across data center, cloud, cloud management, automation, and security. Felix has created a comprehensive security approach that positions Clearpath’s security solutions to improve customers’ security posture and has developed a workshop-led initiative that allows the team to work with customers to develop IT strategies and roadmaps around data center and cloud, digital transformation, and comprehensive security.

As VP of Marketing, Chris Emery has been at the helm of Clearpath’s marketing footprint, implementing several modern marketing initiatives and campaigns. Chris’ emphasis on data analysis and optimization to increase ROI and reduce costs has been invaluable. By focusing on generating go-to-market content through various employees, Chris has made every employee a “marketing employee”, allowing for expanded reach and improved customer engagement.

“Clearpath has always championed forward thinkers so we are thrilled to have not one, but two, exceptional members of the team be recognized as Next-Gen Solution Provider Leaders,” said Gary Vaughan, Clearpath President & CEO. “Both Felix and Chris have displayed proven leadership throughout their tenure. Congratulations and keep up the great work!”

“CRN’s Next-Gen Solution Provider Leaders list pays tribute to the IT channel visionaries and trailblazers who are ushering in the next era of the IT channel,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “We would like to formally congratulate the individuals featured on this year’s list for bringing fresh ideas and innovations that exemplify the very best of what the IT channel has to offer.”
