CRN Recognizes Karen Kukoda as Someone to Know in the Channel

It’s been a busy couple of months for our channel team, and more specifically, our senior strategic alliance director, Karen Kukoda. Following her recognition over the summer as part of CRN's 2018 Women of the Channel List, Karen has received additional accolades from the prestigious organization as someone you should have on your side in the channel.

The channel management team members named to CRN's "100 People You Don’t Know But Should 2018" list have made significant contributions to the success their company and its partners have seen within the channel.

Why Karen Kukoda is Someone You Should Know

Karen is responsible for driving FireEye’s business and cyber thought leadership agenda in the risk management, legal, and insurance marketplaces. She also developed our global cyber risk partnerships from inception. This new route to market has transformed our sales engagement strategy with new prospects and customers. The cyber risk partner ecosystem that Karen has built holistically addresses all aspects of enterprise risk, including the design and development of multiple pre-breach assessments. As a result of this approach, FireEye partners are better able to align at the executive level and shorten sales cycles. This benefits FireEye customers as well given that these partners compliment both the Mandiant services and FireEye solutions.

But I’m biased, so check out what one of our FireEye partners, Michael Tanenbaum, EVP of Chubb, has to say about how Karen helps his business: "Karen Kukoda is a trusted partner who has been instrumental in helping our clients navigate the cyber security landscape. She is a security and technology specialist whose expertise and knowledge – and her dedication to educating others – is highly valued by both our organization and our clients. I highly value her persistence and professionalism, both traits that help to differentiate her as a proven leader in the technology marketplace."

Thank you for all that you do, Karen!
