Lou Antonucci, VP of Sales for Scribe Software, Recognized as 2016 CRN Channel Chief


Manchester, NH - February 23, 2016 - Scribe Software, a global data integration leader, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Lou Antonucci, Scribe's vice president of sales, to its prestigious list of 2016 Channel Chiefs. The executives on this annual list represent top leaders in the IT channel who excel at driving growth and revenue in their organizations through channel partners.

Channel Chief honorees are selected by CRN's editorial staff on the basis of their professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the channel partner community and strategies for driving future growth and innovation. Each of the 2016 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated loyalty and ongoing support for the IT channel by consistently promoting, defending and executing outstanding channel partner programs.

Antonucci was selected as a 2016 Channel Chief for his success in enabling channel partners to build repeatable revenue streams from cloud integration services, and for helping traditionally premise-focused partners adapt to new pricing and service models designed for enterprises that buy cloud integration services. In 2015, Antonucci restructured the pricing of Scribe Online, the company's integration platform as a service (iPaaS) offering, increasing new and existing partner adoption of Scribe Online by making it easier to qualify, quote and sell the platform. He included Scribe's partners and most valuable professionals (MVPs) in pricing structure discussions, resulting in a significant increase in the number of partners selling Scribe's iPaaS and in net partner bookings in 2015 compared with 2014.

"We are honored to present the 2016 lineup of CRN Channel Chiefs, comprised of outstanding executives who move our entire industry forward by cultivating exemplary partner programs and executing cutting-edge business strategy," said Robert Faletra, CEO, 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 incredible strides and look forward to following their accomplishments in the coming year."

"I am honored to be named a Channel Chief because of Scribe's full commitment to helping SIs, VARs and SaaS providers of all sizes during this exciting time," noted Antonucci. "The shift to cloud applications along with the increased emphasis enterprises are placing on improving data quality and analytics represents a tremendous opportunity for solution providers of all types to dramatically increase their strategic value to their customers. Just about every enterprise wants to continuously improve their mission critical data integration, data flow and analytics processes. Solution providers that can help the enterprise adapt to this current cloud disruption, and the resulting enterprise need for agile connectivity, will benefit dramatically. Scribe has always succeeded when our partners do, so we look forward to empowering even more SIs, VARs and SaaS providers to successfully transition to the cloud in 2016."
