FARGO, ND / ACCESSWIRE / May 10, 2022 / ConnectBooster, the world-class payment solutions provider for IT services firms, is announcing today that CRN has named Chief Software Development Officer Jeanette Haugen and Channel Manager Taylor Thorson to its annual Women of the Channel list for 2022. The esteemed accolade honors the incredible accomplishments and leadership of female leaders throughout the IT channel. Those named on the annual list from CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, come from all corners of the industry - including vendors, distributors, and solution providers - and their vision, expertise and contributions make an impact on the industry every day.
Haugen and Thorson combine nearly 27 years of channel experience and bring an extensive set of skills to the table, including quality assurance, project and product management, reporting software, cybersecurity, marketing and payments/sales.
"Those recognized by CRN are among the most driven and influential female leaders in the industry," said Brady Nash, CEO of ConnectBooster. "We are lucky - and thankful - to have the best of the best working at ConnectBooster, as they help propel us into the future of accounting software integration."
In the face of the coronavirus pandemic and IT skills shortages, Haugen was able to almost double her software development team - from 7 to 13 skilled professionals - just in the past year. At the same time, she was building multiple new features and integrations to help partners optimize invoicing and collections tasks. Thorson handled logistics, partner recruitment and engagement responsibilities for ConnectBooster's roadshows in 2021. In the past year, she has focused on launching the company's Secure Payments program - while collaborating with partners and the sales, marketing and asset teams to execute event strategy. Thorson is also the co-host of the company's podcast.
"We are proud to once again recognize the remarkable leaders on this year's Women of the Channel list. Their influence, confidence, and diligence continue to accelerate channel success significantly," said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company.
