The annual list honors outstanding female executives across vendor channel organizations, while those within the Power 50 are honored for their insight and influence in their companies and in the industry.
This year’s Women of the Channel were carefully reviewed and selected by the editors of CRN based on their accomplishments and the influence they exhibit over the technology channel.
With a strong emphasis on growing industry relationships, Melody has exponentially improved CCB’s partnerships and overall revenue.

These initiatives helped take CCB into new verticals, such as SMB commercial, while continuing to expand within their existing nonprofit and healthcare markets. As vice president of marketing, Melody has grown her department from two to eight employees and now provides resources and content marketing to 40,000+ customers. She serves on marketing engagement boards for SYNNEX, Microsoft, and Intel.
