Leslie Bois, Veracode’s Vice President of Global Channel and Alliances, has been selected to the prestigious CRN 2019 Channel Chiefs list. Bois earned the industry recognition for the second consecutive year, a reflection of the growth and influence she has introduced since joining Veracode in 2017.
Bois is responsible for developing and executing Veracode’s global strategy to build a strong partner network that plays a significant role in the company’s go-to-market efforts. She works cross functionally to align all aspects of the business to support channel partners to grow their businesses with Veracode’s platform of leading application security solutions.
Under her leadership, Veracode’s channel pipeline has grown by three times over the past 12 months, and the company’s international business is growing rapidly in partnership with managed security service providers around the world. Veracode has added partners in emerging markets in Asia, Latin America, Europe and the Middle East, and has enabled channel partner success by realigning channel support and resources.
“It’s an honor to earn this recognition from CRN, and reflects the hard work Veracode is doing on behalf of customers to maintain security at the speed of development,” said Bois. “The application security market is poised to take off, and our focus in 2019 will be ensuring our partners are equipped to provide the solutions and training businesses need to secure their software. It’s imperative that good software is synonymous with secure software. Solution providers are going to be critical in helping meet the demands of enterprise and SMB application security programs.”
Each of the 2019 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated exceptional leadership, vision, and commitment to their channel partner programs. Channel Chief honorees are selected by CRN’s editorial staff as a result of their professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the channel partner community, and strategies for driving future growth and innovation.
“The individuals on CRN’s 2019 Channel Chiefs list deserve special recognition for their contribution and support in the development of robust partner programs, innovative business strategies, and significant influence to the overall health of the IT channel,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “We applaud each Channel Chief’s remarkable record of accomplishments and look forward to following their continued success.”
