MINNEAPOLIS, May 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Arcserve, LLC, the data backup and availability pioneer, today announced that Chief Marketing Officer Rachel McClary, and Vice President of Partner Sales for Latin America Daniela Costa, have been named to the prestigious CRN® 2018 Women of the Channel list. The executives who comprise this annual list by CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, span the IT channel, representing vendors, distributors, solution providers and other organizations that figure prominently in the channel ecosystem. Each is recognized for her outstanding leadership, vision and unique role in driving channel growth and innovation.

McClary joined Arcserve as CMO in December 2017 with more than 20 years of channel marketing leadership experience in the IT/Software industry. She has implemented and successfully led initiatives that drive demand, branding, go-to-market strategies and operational best practices. Earlier this year, Rachel and her team were an integral part in successfully bringing to market the new Arcserve Unified Data Protection (UDP) Cloud Direct, a disaster recovery service ideal for channel partners and cloud service providers (CSPs). Rachel has also doubled down on investments to enhance Arcserve’s overall partner experience, with new partner-designed incentives and promotions, optimized pricing, streamlined training, and the development of new partner resource packages.

As VP of Latin America for Arcserve, Costa has a critical role in the leadership, continuity and growth of the company’s brand throughout the region. Before she led Arcserve’s spin out from CA Technologies in Latin America, Costa worked 16 years at CA Technologies, where she started her market development for Arcserve solutions with the channels. Most recently at Arcserve, she spearheaded the very successful rollout of Arcserve Now, an ioS and Android app that gives partners exclusive real-time access to Arcserve’s latest news on licensing models, success stories and promotions.

“Rachel and Dani are two exemplary Arcserve leaders,” said Tom Signorello, CEO of Arcserve. “From launching new products and enhancements within our UDP portfolio that have solidified Arcserve as a dominant industry player across geographies, to enhancing our global Partner Program, Dani and Rachel are dedicated to Arcserve’s focus on delivering innovative technologies and services with our partners top of mind. A well-deserved congratulations to both of them for this recognition.”
