Verizon Business SMB Solutions Executive Recognized by Everything Channel's CRN Magazine

Everything Channel's CRN magazine recognized on Monday (Aug. 24) a Verizon Business executive, Susan Molnar, as one of its Top 100 Women in the Channel.

Molnar, executive director of indirect sales channels for the company's recently formed Small and Medium Business (SMB) Solutions organization, is responsible for the channels, which sell integrated Verizon communications and information technology solutions to SMB customers.

Molnar and the other women in The Top 100 Women in the Channel were chosen by the editors of the magazine, based on the women's achievements as executives and the amount of influence they wield over the technology channel.  The honorees represent a changing trend in a traditionally all-male industry.

"We are very pleased to see women executives reaching the highest levels in a wide range of dynamic companies," said Robert C. DeMarzo, senior vice president and editorial director of Everything Channel, a one-stop Web site for managing and accelerating technology sales. "It is with great pleasure that we honor the women who have made a profound impact in the technology marketplace.  We offer our congratulations to Susan Molnar for her significant contributions to our industry." 

James Geary, vice president of Small and Medium Business Solutions sales for Verizon Business, said: "We are very proud of Susan's recognition by CRN Magazine for her accomplishments in the technology industry.  Susan has helped us establish our indirect sales channel as we continue to serve our customers."

Throughout her career, Molnar has held leadership positions in product line management, sales, desktop systems development, training and education, and marketing communications.
