Women in the Channel (WiC) has named a new president, new officers and two new members of its board of directors.
Longtime WiC board member Stacy Conrad, Fusion’s vice president of channel sales, is the group’s new president. She succeeds Hilary Gadda, TPx’s director of national channel development, who held the role for the past two years.
“I am overjoyed and honored to be elected as WiC’s president,” Conrad said. “I want to take this opportunity to thank WiC’s former president, Hilary Gadda. A great leader is one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way. Hilary, you are an exemplary leader and a great friend. I feel privileged to continue in your shoes in developing the future of the WiC organization, together, working side by side.”
Gadda, who relinquishes her seat on the board, continues in her role as co-chair of the outreach committee.
“We are thrilled to have someone with Stacy’s experience serving as our new president,” Gadda said. “She brings a powerful energy to our organization. Stacy will make a big impact to grow WiC, while ensuring our members gain insight, knowledge and most importantly, a voice in the rapidly changing technology channel.”
Shaquille Fontenot, director of marketing at Converged Network Services Group (CNSG), and Michelle Kadlacek, senior director of the Enterprise Channel Partner Program at Spectrum, have joined the WiC board of directors. Both began serving two-year terms on Jan. 1.
They join WiC’s continuing board members, including: Rebecca Rosen, Broadvoice’s vice president of marketing; Helene Kidary, OnSIP’s vice president of channel sales; Raquel Wiley, TPx’s senior channel marketing manager; and Amy Bailey, Telarus’ vice president of marketing.
In addition to Conrad as president, WiC’s new officers include Rosen as vice president and treasurer, and Kidary as secretary.
Khali Henderson, senior partner of BuzzTheory Strategies, also completed her two-year term on the board. She continues in her role as chair of the communications committee, and member of the newsletter and events planning committees.
WiC will host its semiannual networking event April 17, 5-8 p.m., at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo in Las Vegas
