McAfee's Ken McCray Recognized as 2019 CRN® Channel Chief

McAfee (News - Alert), the device-to-cloud cybersecurity company, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Ken McCray, head of Americas channel sales and operations at McAfee, to its exclusive list of the 50 Most Influential Channel Chiefs for 2019. The top executives on this annual list are part of an elite group of leaders who drive the channel agenda and evangelize the importance of channel partnerships. This distinguished group is recognized for outstanding commitment to driving growth and revenue in their organization through partners, as well as extraordinary leadership in the channel as a whole.

Channel Chief honorees are selected by CRN's editorial staff as a result 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 2019 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated loyalty and ongoing support for the channel by consistently promoting, defending and executing outstanding partner programs. However, only 50 of those were selected for the Most Influential list, each singled out for his or her prominent role in guiding and shaping the IT channel itself.

In 2018, McCray oversaw the launch of a new initiative that drove double-digit growth with managed security partners while establishing relationships with key cloud service providers. This initiative and resulting relationships led to new customers and increased bookings for MSPs and cloud service providers.

"The individuals on CRN's 2019 Channel Chiefs list deserve special recognition for their contribution and support in the development of robust partner programs, innovative business strategies, and significant influence to the overall health of the IT hannel," said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. "We applaud each Channel Chief's remarkable record of accomplishments and look forward to following their continued success."

"It's a great honor to be recognized as one of the top 50 Most Influential Channel Chiefs by CRN," said McCray. "McAfee has made considerable progress in building a program that provides the right tools and processes to our partner community. As we set our sights on the future, we'll continue to make investments to drive successful customer outcomes."

The 2019 CRN Channel Chiefs list, including the 50 Most Influential Channel Chiefs, is featured online at and will appear in the February 2019 issue of CRN.
