February 2017

Bitdefender, a leading Internet security company protecting 500 million users worldwide, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Rob Daniel Chomko, Vice President North America Sales, to its prestigious list of 2017 Channel Chiefs

Chomko was selected by CRN’s editorial staff in a process that emphasizes professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the channel partner community and strategies for driving future growth and innovation. Each 2017 Channel Chief has demonstrated loyalty and ongoing support for the IT channel by consistently promoting, defending and executing outstanding channel partner programs.

Constant innovation and a sharp focus on benefits for partners has helped double the membership of Bitdefender’s partner network in the past two years. A variety of recent awards from independent channel auditors further attest to the high level of partner satisfaction with Bitdefender’s program.

The latest enhancements to the Bitdefender Partner Advantage Network enable partners to improve their competitive positioning so Bitdefender’s top partners can as much as double their previous margins.

“The executives on our 2017 Channel Chiefs list have distinguished themselves by building strong partner programs, developing and executing effective business strategy and helping to advance the channel as a whole,” said Bob Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “They represent an extraordinary group of individuals who lead by example and serve as both invaluable advocates and innovators of the IT channel. We applaud their achievements and look forward to their successes in the coming year.”   

“I’m honored to be included in this year’s CRN Channel Chiefs,” said Chomko. “I believe we are doing everything we can to ensure Bitdefender’s partner program is fruitful for all involved. Our innovation and meaningful investments continues in 2017, as we have increased deal registration margin, added significantly more to our MDF budget, and are improving our partner on-boarding and business review processes.  Our top priority is to make it easy to do business with Bitdefender.”
