I’m thrilled to share that three executives here at Symantec – May Mitchell, Tricia Atchison and Sue Fossnes – have been recognized by CRN for its 2014 “Women of the Channel” list. CRN’s annual list highlights the accomplishments of female executives within vendor, distribution and solution provider organizations, and the impact they are having on the advancement of the IT channel industry as a whole. Additionally, May and Tricia were selected to be a part of CRN’s “Power 100,” the top 100 most powerful women in the channel.

May Mitchell has helped to champion Symantec’s transformation toward a partner-centric model. As Symantec’s Vice President for North America Marketing, she has taken a market-led approach in the development of new market-pull and market-push campaigns and programs, product roadmaps and enablement tools to support our key priorities. This year, May is helping to lead the charge with our...

As a Symantec alum who co-founded a startup, I’ve had the opportunity to gain a unique perspective on business by working both for a global industry leader, as well as launching a new venture. I’m proud of the grounding Symantec provided for me as a new business leader – my Symantec experience provided a macro perspective that many startup leaders don’t have. One of the most valuable takeaways from my Symantec career is the positive, productive community I found there – a supportive network that rightly takes pride in working for the industry’s best company. But how do the two workplace experiences differ?

But working for a large company is equally valuable: being part of a diverse, knowledgeable team is an education that is just as essential and also transferable to all business environments. At Symantec, I learned that it is...
