We work very hard at Progress to ensure that our partners succeed, and no one works harder than Kimberly King, Vice President of Worldwide Partners and Channels. Kim is responsible for the success of the Progress partner community, and is in charge of strategic direction and management.
It's an exciting time for the 2200+ global partners in the Progress family. Several hundred partners met just last month at our ProgressNEXT conference, which Kim led. After the conference, 91% rated the event either better than other Partner Conferences they've attended or as the best one they'd ever attended.
As one new partner put it, "I am new to Progress and felt very, very welcomed at the conference. The conference was really well-organized and had a fun environment."
The community is expanding—under Kim's leadership we have added hundreds of new partners as well as grown our existing partner revenues throughout the year. With our growing product portfolio and industry-leading support, there's never been a better time to be a Progress partner.
Fresh off her win last year, Kim has maintained her dedication to partner success and has once again been recognized as a CRN Channel Chief. We don't take this recognition lightly, as CRN is a respected and longstanding resource for channel-related information and strategic guidance. It is the de-facto standard for the market.
This seventh consecutive naming is no small feat, and an acknowledgement of Kim's accomplishments and expertise in this space. CRN has also recognized Kim as a Top Women of the Channel and in their Power 100 from 2013-2015, a testament to her dedication and standing in the industry.
We applaud Kim for her hard work and well deserved recognition.
