Performive Earns 5-Star Rating in the 2021 CRN® Partner Program Guide

Performive, the VMware-centric Managed Cloud provider built for the Mid-Market, earned a 5-Star Rating of their newly launched Channel Program by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, in its 2021 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide provides a conclusive list of the most distinguished partner programs from leading technology companies that provide services through the IT Channel.  
“Our organization has benefited greatly from Channel Chief Mark Mercado’s leadership in developing our new Channel Program,” commented Performive CEO, Gary Simat. “Through our relationships in the Channel, we are able to reach and serve mid-sized companies across the globe to optimize their hybrid and VMware cloud operations. ” 
The Performive Channel Program was developed in early 2020 during the global pandemic. “We are thrilled to be awarded a 5-star rating from CRN, but I wouldn’t say we are surprised,” remarked Danielle Walter, Marketing VP. “If anyone could build a strong channel program in so little time during 2020 – it was going to be a proven channel expert and veteran like Mark Mercado.” The uncertain business market of 2020 allowed the Performive team to consult with top channel partner and build a Channel Program and technology services portfolio that met Mid-Market client’s needs.  
“As innovation continues to fuel the speed and intricacy of technology, solution providers need partners that can keep up and support their developing business.” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s 2021 Partner Program Guide gives insight into the strengths of each organization’s program to recognize those that continually support and push positive change inside the IT channel.”  
“Businesses are facing an unprecedented era of disruption and are accelerating cloud adoption which creates a great opportunity for the Channel, particularly in the Mid-Market space. Organizations need value-added advisors to guide them to solutions that align specifically with their unique needs,” added Mark Mercado. “Performive is proud to provide cloud training and marketing campaigns empowering Channel agents to be that knowledgeable guide.”
