LOS ALTOS, Calif. – March 12, 2015 Netskope, the leader in safe cloud enablement, announced today that Vice President of Channel Sales Gary Ochs has been named to the prestigious list of the “2015 CRN Channel Chiefs.”

The influential executives on this annual list represent the most powerful leaders in the IT channel who hold direct responsibility for driving growth and revenue for their organizations through their indirect channel partners. Individuals are selected for inclusion based on their track record of channel accomplishments, standing in the industry, dedication to the partner community, and plans for driving future business innovation and channel growth. The 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs have demonstrated their enduring support for the channel by consistently defending, promoting and executing effective channel partner programs and strategies.

“Each year, our editors carefully vet an extensive group of highly accomplished channel executives to highlight those exemplary individuals who earn the mantle of CRN Channel Chief,” said Robert Faletra, chief executive officer of The Channel Company. “These executives strive to advance the success and standing of the channel community within their organizations. The 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs lead by example and serve as valuable advocates to help ensure the health and longevity of the IT channel. We applaud their accomplishments and look forward to their continued success.”

Over the past year-plus, Ochs has played an integral role in building out the global Netskope Partner Program. With a pragmatic approach that places high value in forging relationships at the field level, Ochs has ensured that Netskope is a go-to cloud access security broker for a strong and focused group of channel partners in the North America and EMEA markets.

“We have succeeded as a company in building an impressive network of partners over the past year,” said Ochs. “This recognition is not about me, but rather the tireless work of our entire team spanning four continents and countless hours of hard work in establishing some truly impressive partnerships.”

The 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs list was featured in the February 2015 issue of CRN and online at This recognition marks the latest CRN honor recognizing Netskope for its dedication to the channel. Last October, Ochs was named to CRN’s “100 People You Don’t Know but Should” list and Netskope was named one of CRN’s “20 Coolest Cloud Security Vendors of the 2015 Cloud 100” in January 2015.
