ATLANTA, May 14, 2018 – ADAPTURE, an Atlanta-based IT consulting company and technology integrator, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Laura Burdine, Sales Operations Manager, and Mandy Glidewell, Director of Marketing, to its prestigious 2018 Women of the Channel list. The women who comprise this annual list span the IT channel, representing vendors, distributors, solution providers and other organizations that figure prominently in the channel ecosystem. Each is recognized for her outstanding leadership, vision and unique role in driving channel growth and innovation.
CRN editors select the Women of the Channel honorees based on their professional accomplishments, demonstrated expertise and ongoing dedication to the IT channel.
Burdine is a ten-year veteran of the channel, having contributed to the growth of two CRN Solution Provider 500 honorees as a strategic operations expert with a strong background in logistics. She assumed her current role at ADAPTURE in 2013 and leads sales operations efforts for the organization. This is Burdine’s second recognition on CRN’s Women of the Channel list.
Glidewell spearheads marketing and demand generation efforts at ADAPTURE, working closely with internal teams and channel partners to increase sales activity and drive revenue. She is an eight-year veteran of the channel and assumed her current role in 2016. This is Glidewell’s third such recognition.
