CDI’s Alyssa Hall and Emily Hopkins Named on CRN’s 2022 Women of the Channel Power 70 Solutions Provider List
New York – May 9, 2022 — Leading Hybrid IT Systems Integrator, CDI (Computer Design and Integration, LLC.) announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named both Alyssa Hall, Chief Marketing Officer, and Emily Hopkins, Director, Integrated Marketing, to its 2022 Power 70 Solution Providers list, an elite subset of honorees chosen from the annual CRN Women of the Channel list.
These extraordinary women support their solution provider businesses and customers with exceptional leadership through solid business acumen, innovation, and strategic thinking. CRN celebrates these women, who deserve recognition for their constant dedication to channel excellence.
The CRN editorial team selects the annual Power 70 Solution Provider honorees, an incredible group of distinguished female channel leaders, based on their expertise and contributions to building strong solution provider businesses. This exclusive list features elite industry professionals who drive success daily through leadership and a deep dedication to their organizations and the entire IT channel.
Alyssa Hall was named CDI’s first-ever Chief Marketing Officer in March 2022. Starting at CDI in 2016, Ms. Hall has been integral in the organization’s growth, adapting in just six years to the increase from a handful of partner vendors to over 200. She has built a world-class marketing team to support these partnerships through integrated marketing campaigns and elite events, as well as increased media coverage and social media engagement, all with an emphasis on lead generation. The focus remains on growth, both organic and through acquisitions, including a now global presence with the creation of CDI International.
Emily Hopkins serves as Director, Integrated Marketing overseeing strategic promotional efforts through digital and live event campaigns. She has been a key driver in aligning the Candoris and CDI strategies through the acquisition and integration. With an expertise in paid digital media, she has been instrumental in compounding inbound leads as well as enhancing existing campaigns and events with a digital component.
Ms. Hall and Ms. Hopkins join CDI’s Angie Gomez, VP of Human Resources & Compliance, on this year’s CRN Women of the Channel list.
“With each acquisition, I have been so lucky with regard to the level of talent joining the marketing team,” said Hall. “When Emily joined from Candoris and was able to become our internal digital marketing strategist, it added a missing element to our team that touches all aspects of our marketing strategy. It’s amazing to see the impact that each marketing team addition has made, and it’s wonderful to keep adding to our group of strong women professionals.”
“It has been my privilege and honor to work alongside Alyssa Hall and her team,” said Rich Falcone, CEO & President, CDI. “To say Alyssa has been influential in our success is an understatement. She has leveled up our branding and business development strategy each year, and continues to set us apart from our competitors.
Women make up only 11% of the workforce in tech, but our number is double that – over 22%. Of that group, a quarter of them are in leadership roles. Our success as a company absolutely can be attributed to a diverse, engaged workforce, and these women are a huge part of that success.”
“We are proud to once again recognize the remarkable leaders on this year’s Women of the Channel list. Their influence, confidence, and diligence continue to accelerate channel success significantly,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “Their accomplishments will inspire others, and we look forward to witnessing their future contributions to the channel.”
CRN’s 2022 Women of the Channel and Power 70 lists will be featured in the June issue of CRN Magazine and online at www.CRN.com/WOTC.
