The leaders on this annual list are from all areas of the IT channel ecosystem; representing technology suppliers, distributors, solution providers, and other IT organizations.

Cheh has more than 20 years of experience in the technology business developing successful marketing strategies, guiding marketing operations and increasing customer demand. Her role is to provide leadership to the marketing team in business-to-business (B2B) marketing, and develop marketing strategies, programs and initiatives to generate demand for display solutions.

“As an organization, NEC Display puts a strong importance on successfully working with our partners and I’m grateful for this recognition,” Cheh said. “We continuously maintain our focus on achieving smart growth, improving programs & tools that enable the channel to sell our products and solutions, and improve internal processes to make it easier to do business with the company.”

Also honored this year is Betsy Larson, with an extensive background of 24 years in the channel industry, the majority of which she has spent in various positions with NEC. She has spurred improvements and innovation to the company’s partner programs, including creating additional margin incentives, increasing vertical-selling tools and enhancing resources where resellers obtain NEC pricing and promotions.

“Our goal is to continue to create programs that help enable NEC Display’s current and future channel partnerships and this award is evident of the effort we put into these initiatives,” says Larson. “Each vertical we serve is unique to its own industry, so we want to continue to create offerings and innovate solutions to the industries that our partners serve.”
