They say that the most valuable recognition a person can receive is from his or her peers.

Each year, The Channel Company's Midsize Enterprise Summit highlights the IT industry's most influential vendor executives who focus on the midmarket. According to The Channel Company, this segment “is one of the IT industry's fastest-growing, and its channel executives are faced with challenges daily. The best meet those challenges head on, while also serving the demands of senior IT leaders of midsize organizations.”

We’re thrilled to announce that the Top Midmarket IT Vendor Executives for 2015 list includes Information Builders’ chief marketing officer, Michael Corcoran. The list, honoring the top 100 influential vendor executives currently serving midmarket and midsized customers, is compiled by polling midmarket CIOs and gaining their perspective on vendors.

“CIOs judge such organizations by their actions not words,” according to Robert DeMarzo, senior vice president at The Channel Company.

Michael is included in a group of honorees that have been nominated by peers, colleagues, customers and partners for “the leadership, strategic thinking, and solution excellence they have demonstrated.” He received the award for his achievements along with other honorees at the Midsize Enterprise Summit West conference held in Los Angeles this week.
