President of CMIT Solutions of Downtown Fort Worth and Dallas-Addison Honored as One of CRN’s 2019 Women of the Channel

CMIT Solutions of Downtown Fort Worth and Dallas-Addison, one of the region’s leading information technology service providers, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Shirley Peterson to its prestigious 2019 Women of the Channel list. The leaders on this annual list are from all areas of the IT channel ecosystem; representing technology suppliers, distributors, solution providers, and other IT organizations. Each is recognized for her contributions to channel advocacy, channel growth and visionary leadership.
 
CRN editors choose the list from a multitude of channel leadership applicants and select the final honorees based on their professional accomplishments, demonstrated expertise, and ongoing dedication to the IT channel.
 
Peterson earned the honor following a nomination from the editors of CRN Magazine, who chose candidates based on their achievements as executives and the amount of influence they wield over the technology channel. All of the recipients are women who represent a changing trend in a traditionally male dominated industry.
 
“CRN’s 2019 Women of the Channel list honors influential leaders who are accelerating channel growth through mutually-benefical partnerships, incredible leadership, strategic vision, and unique contributions in their field,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “This accomplished group of leaders is driving channel success and we are proud to honor their achievements.”
 
As a seven-time recipient of the award, Peterson continues to raise the bar for IT solution providers nationwide. In addition to being named a Women of the Channel, Peterson was recognized as “Franchisee of the Year” by the CMIT Solutions Corporate office in 2014 for leading CMIT Solutions of Downtown Fort Worth and Dallas-Addison to the top of the franchise system.
 
“It has been an honor to receive this award for the past seven years and to continue being acknowledged for the work I do in IT services,“ said Peterson. “Every year I am impressed and inspired by the women included in this list. My hope is that together we can encourage the next generation of women to pursue a career in technology.”
 
Offering a broad spectrum of proactive computer maintenance, monitoring, and virtual technology packages, including cloud computing and hosting, along with quick response services when unexpected crises occur, CMIT Solutions has carved out its niche as an industry innovator that specializes in working with the small business community.
 
The 2019 Women of the Channel list will be featured in the June issue of CRN Magazine and online at www.CRN.com/WOTC.
