Cloud Girls Rising Award Winners and PartnerPath 2017 Results to be announced

Seattle, April 4, 2017 Nuvalo announced today that its Principal and CEO Manon Buettner will be a panelist and presenter at Channel Partner Conference & Expo on April 12, 2017, at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada. The conference runs from April 10-13, 2017.

Channel Partners teamed up with PartnerPath for the 2017 State of Partnering survey that examines what vendors think about their channel partners’ experiences — and how those choices of policies, programs, people and systems affect the partner’s business.

In addition, Ms. Buettner and Cloud Girls co-founder, Jo Peterson, and Women in the Channel, will be presenting the second annual Cloud Girls Rising Awards, which recognizes women who have demonstrated innovation, solution-orientation and thought leadership in the cloud space in 2016. The award winners will be named in the categories: “Trailblazer” and “Rising Star.”
