The 2021 CRN Top 100 Executives list identifies the forward-thinking and innovative tech leaders who are radically transforming the IT channel
CRN also honors Brockett as a Top 25 Innovator
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., August 02, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Arcserve, the world’s most experienced data and ransomware protection provider, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Douglas Brockett, President at Arcserve, to its 2021 Top 100 Executives list. This annual list honors the passionate and hard-working technology executives supporting, growing, and redefining the IT channel. The executives named on this list have demonstrated their commitment to the channel and proved themselves as exemplary leaders through their innovative channel-focused strategies and initiatives.
In March 2021, Brockett joined Arcserve as president following Arcserve’s merger with StorageCraft. Brockett had been with StorageCraft since its 2017 acquisition of Exablox, where he had served as CEO, creating award-winning scale-out filesystem technology. Under Brockett’s leadership, StorageCraft experienced its most productive and innovative period since its early days as the company worked to achieve Brockett’s vision of radically simplifying the protection and management of data.
At Arcserve, Brockett is responsible for delivering comprehensive, highly scalable data management and protection solutions with flexible, channel-friendly business models. Now one of the world’s largest business continuity companies, the new Arcserve features the broadest data protection and management solutions portfolio under one roof. Additionally, Arcserve’s technology integration and innovation roadmap will soon deliver the most advanced set of data protection and recovery solutions managed through a single pane of glass. This fast-tracked innovation path gives channel organizations easy access to the future of business continuity, ensuring they stay ahead of customer needs.
CRN’s Top 100 Executives list acknowledges the tech visionaries who are blazing new trails within the larger IT space. It honors executives across four sub-categories: the 25 Most Influential Executives, Top 25 Channel Sales Leaders, Top 25 Innovators, and Top 25 Disruptors, each with its own set of strengths that impact the IT channel. Here, CRN recognized Brockett as a Top 25 Innovator.
Blaine Raddon, CEO, The Channel Company
"New technology trends, such as the shift to remote work, cloud computing, SaaS, and IoT, have forced companies to rapidly adapt to an IT landscape that gets more complex by the day. However, with IT executives like those featured on our CRN 2021 Top 100 Executives list leading the charge, those same companies are better equipped to tackle modern IT challenges. These leaders have demonstrated an unceasing commitment to business growth and IT innovation, and I have no doubt they’ll continue to do so as new challenges arise."
Douglas Brockett, President, Arcserve
"I am honored to be named on CRN’s list of Top 100 Executives. I’m incredibly excited about Arcserve’s future and what we can do for our channel partners and their customers. As a global top five data management and protection vendor, we’re changing the market and we’re challenging the status quo of the data protection market with innovation. Previously, there wasn’t a single company with a solution portfolio broad and deep enough to solve all business continuity needs with simplicity, agility, affordability, and scale. Now there is."
Continues Brockett: "Partners can rely on Arcserve for an agile ecosystem that manages data workloads in all environments, as well as protects and recovers data in the event of a disaster. We’re thrilled to empower our partners with an easier route to complete business continuity—helping our partners thrive is the whole point."
The Top 100 Executives list will be featured in the August 2021 issue of CRN Magazine and online at www.CRN.com/Top100.
