CRN’s 2023 “Women of the Channel” Honors Two Netwrix Channel Executives: Melissa Schmulson and Eleonora Lyapina

Every year, CRN recognizes women whose expertise and vision are leaving a noticeable and commendable mark on the technology industry.

Netwrix, a cybersecurity vendor that makes data security easy, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named two Netwrix executives to its Women of the Channel list for 2023: Melissa Schmulson and Eleonora Lyapina. Every year, CRN recognizes women whose expertise and vision are leaving a noticeable and commendable mark on the technology industry.

Melissa, Vice President of North America channel sales at Netwrix, has been involved with the channel for seven years, after beginning her career as a sales representative for a technology solutions provider. Now she oversees channel strategy for North America at Netwrix, a vendor that has an extensive portfolio of sixteen security products, including one tailored specifically for MSPs. Melissa is committed to ensuring alignment between leaders at Netwrix and its partners, and under her leadership, Netwrix channel bookings in this region have grown by over 30% for two consecutive years.

Eleonora, Director of Global Partner Marketing and Operations at Netwrix, has more than a decade of marketing and operational leadership in the software industry. She built the company's channel infrastructure from the ground up, overseeing all channel marketing, enablement and operational functions from its startup stage to the present day. With Eleonora's guidance, in 2022, Netwrix's channel business in North America achieved bookings that were more than five times the corresponding investment into channel marketing and doubled the number of Netwrix AMER with-partner events.

As a channel-first company, Netwrix understands that our partners are vital to our success. We are committed to growing our businesses together and further driving channel success. We are delighted that Eleonora’s and Melissa’s experience, dedication and leadership in support of Netwrix partners has been recognized by the IT channel community.
