Park Place’s Staci Rodriguez honored by CRN Women of the Channel Awards

Park Pace Technologies Channel Partner Director Staci Rodriguez has been named to the 2020 CRN Women of the Channel Awards list. Each year, CRN honors women whose channel expertise and vision are deserving of recognition.

Rodriguez, who has worked in channel sales for 14 years, has been with Park Place since 2018. An accomplished leader with broad experience and recognized success in sales, operations and management, she is a strategist behind initiatives that drive annual revenue gains, profit growth, and market share in highly competitive markets. She grew business 40% year-over-year by organizing monthly channel training and engagement events across the US. She has advanced Channel business by expanding and aligning channel coverage in the field to support both Park Place and channel sellers more consistently, taking a leadership role in creating a public sector specific business program that benefits the partner’s ability to leverage TPM in a broader customer base and a lead role in ensuring the partner community is quickly trained on new products we acquire and release, such as Entuity.

“Continuing to diversify revenue through the expansion of services is a key for me in 2020,” she said. “That means working with vendors that offer customers more choices and alternatives to freeing up dollars to fund more projects. On-premises spend will only get tighter, so partners need to make every dollar count, and offering customers alternatives on service and support, along with new ways to provide multi-vendor proactive monitoring will be key to unlocking growth in 2020.”

Jeff McCullough, Global VP of Park Place Channel Sales, congratulated Rodriguez for her achievement.

“Park Place is very proud of Staci for earning this recognition,” he said. “She is a strong presence and strong sales leader, and we are fortunate to have her at Park Place. Her skills and effort set her apart, not just among her women colleagues, but among all sales professionals.”
