May 16, 2017


Marietta, GA, May 16, 2017 – MicroCorp, an advanced solutions distributor for data, voice, Unified Communications and data center services, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Karin Fields, CEO to its prestigious 2017 Women of the Channel list. The executives 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.

Karin Fields has been the CEO of MicroCorp since her 2014 induction, at which time she retained her COO title as well. She has been a part of MicroCorp since 1994, and was recently named Chair of The Alliance Partners — an industry group devoted to the development of the channel partner ecosystem. She has led MicroCorp through significant evolution as the company more closely works with industry giants including CenturyLink and Verizon.

“These extraordinary executives support every aspect of the channel ecosystem, from technical innovation to marketing to business development, working tirelessly to keep the channel moving into the future,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company “They are creating and elevating channel partner programs, developing fresh go-to-market strategies, strengthening the channel’s network of partnerships and building creative new IT solutions, among many other contributions. We congratulate all the 2017 Women of the Channel on their stellar accomplishments and look forward to their future success.”

“I am honored to make the 2017 Women of the Channel list, and to be named among so many other talented leaders in our industry,” Fields said. “Each year sees more and more women entering the channel and creating success for themselves and their partners. I am grateful for the recognition, and humbled to be alongside other trailblazing women.”
