AUSTIN, Texas - February 9, 2022 - M-Files Corporation, the intelligent information management company, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Scott Erickson, senior vice president of worldwide channel sales at M-Files, to its prestigious 2022 Channel Chiefs list. The annual list recognizes influential leaders who demonstrate outstanding leadership, influence, innovation and growth.
"Recognition as a 2022 Channel Chief is an honor and a true testament to our channel team and our partners at large," said Erickson. "We look forward to continuing to build our thriving global partner network and providing an opportunity to empower our channel partners with the resources they need to transform their businesses."
Erickson was responsible for launching the new M-Files Partner Program in April 2021, which enabled a record number of partners to attain fundamental accreditations to showcase their proficiency in delivering M-Files solutions.
