President of CMIT Solutions of Monroe Honored as One of CRN’s 2019 Women of the Channel


ROCHESTER, N.Y. – CMIT Solutions of Monroe, one of the region’s leading information technology service providers, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named President Cheryl Nelan 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.

Nelan 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 acheivements.”

As a five-time recipient of the award, Nelan continues to raise the bar for IT solution providers nationwide. At this year’s annual CMIT Solutions conference, Nelan received the “Community Service” award from the franchise system for her work in the Rochester community. Nelan’s office is built on a foundation of teamwork, sacrifice, service, and success. Her causes range from the Sunshine Campus that serves special needs campers to school # 8, the Roberto Clemente Elementary School, where she spends time reading to young students as well as serving on the Board of the Susan B. Anthony House, which has an international impact in inspiring others to change the world for the better while having a local impact on the urban community in which it is located.

“It continues to be an honor to be named as one of this year’s Women of the Channel,” said Nelan. “I’m committed to helping pave the way for other women to enter and thrive in the IT world. I’m proud to be a member of this industry and to be recognized alongside so many other distinguished women. I look forward to continuing to make a name for myself and CMIT in Rochester as the community’s trusted IT advisor.”

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.
