Four finalists for SCC in CRN Women in Channel Awards 2021
Four women from SCC, Europe’s biggest independent IT solutions provider, have been named as finalists at this year’s prestigious CRN Women in Channel Awards 2021.
Now in its fourth year, the CRN Women in Channel Awards celebrates and recognises women from all areas and levels in the IT channel – from graduate newcomers to top leaders and entrepreneurs. SCC had a record 21 women on the peer-nominated longlist, with four shortlisted as finalists following judging by 23 of the channel’s leading women and men, including former CRN Women in Channel Awards winners. Patricia McIntosh, Head of National Internal Account Management and Inside Sales, and Sara Wilkes, Head of Customer Service Management, are finalists in the Manager of the Year (Reseller/Solution Provider) category. Gabrielle Barthelemy, International Marketing Manager, and Rohima Begum, Vendor Marketing Manager, are finalists in the Marketing Employee of the Year (Reseller/Solution Provider) category. Mike Swain, SCC UK CEO, said: “SCC has always worked hard to increase diversity and ensure opportunities exist for all – particularly in recent years. Women remain under-represented in our industry, but we and others are doing all we can to address this, and we are proud to have four women representing SCC as finalists. “This is an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women in the IT channel and highlight female role models who are inspiring the next generation and pushing diversity forward. To Pat, Sara, Gabby, and Rohima: thank you, congratulations, and good luck from all of us at SCC!” All winners will be announced during the CRN Women in Channel Awards ceremony on Thursday, 14 October 2021 at The Brewery, London.
