As one of the IT channel’s rising stars, Chevon is being recognized for delivering business excellence at scale for PlanetOne and its growing national network of partners and providers
Scottsdale, Ariz., Sept. 27, 2021 – PlanetOne, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Chevon Martin, Director of Operations, as one of the IT channel’s 100 People You Don’t Know But Should for 2021. Published annually, this list honors the people working tirelessly behind the scenes to support not only their partners, but also the broader channel ecosystem.
The CRN editorial team compiles the list each year to bring well-deserved attention to the best and brightest who may not be as visible or well-known as some channel executives, but whose roles are just as important. Chevon was selected for inclusion on the list based on feedback from leading solution providers and industry executives.
“Chevon has never met a business process she couldn’t improve upon,” said Chris Werpy, COO, PlanetOne. “In her role as Director of Operation, she delivers a tremendous amount of business excellence at scale for PlanetOne, our partners and our providers. When others listen to respond, Chevon listens to learn and take action. We are proud to have Chevon as a member of the PlanetOne team, and thank CRN for recognizing her contributions as one of the IT channel’s rising stars.”
Chevon joined PlanetOne as Senior Partner Success Manager in July 2019 and was promoted to Director of Operations in December 2020. In just two years, she has put her mind to work within PlanetOne—making iterative improvements to nearly every facet of the organization and introducing new and better ways to engage and enable PlanetOne’s growing national network of partners and providers. Her leadership, inclusive nature and drive to deliver clear and differentiated value, have exceeded expectations and enhanced both the employee and partner experience at PlanetOne.
“There are truly talented folks who make game-changing, creative, and strategic decisions every day behind the scenes,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “With the 100 People You Don’t Know But Should, we are excited to shine a light on this exceptional group and honor them for their remarkably important work on behalf of their partners and their contributions to the IT channel at large.”
The 100 People You Don’t Know But Should will be featured in the October issue of CRN Magazine and can be found online at www.crn.com/100people.
