Dh2i’s Connor Cox, director of business development, recognized as 2018 CRN® channel chief

Recognized for Executing Outstanding Channel Programs that Provide Partners with Optimum Outcomes and Dramatically Increased Revenues

announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Connor Cox, Director of Business Development, to its prestigious list of 2018 Channel Chiefs. The executives on this annual list represent top leaders in the IT channel who excel at driving growth and revenue in their organization through channel partners.

Channel Chief honorees are selected by CRN’s editorial staff on the basis of their professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the channel partner community, and strategies for driving future growth and innovation. Each of the 2018 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated loyalty and ongoing support for the IT channel by consistently promoting, defending and executing outstanding channel partner programs.

Cox was recognized for his unyielding dedication to the success of DH2i’s channel partners, as well as his direction of DH2i’s channel organization.  Key accomplishments during the past year included leading DH2i’s expansion into the APAC region for the first time, with the addition of partner organizations based in India and South Korea: ApON Innovative Solutions and Korea Cyber Tech Inc.

Cox personally facilitated the smooth on-boarding of both organizations through live demos, sales training meetings and personalized tours through DH2i’s partner portal. Moreover, in short time DH2i closed its first deal within a country where the dominant language is not English. 

Cox worked closely with Korea Cyber Tech to ensure the organization received all of the resources and assistance they required to close their first deal. Cox also expanded DH2i’s presence into Nigeria and Ghana, signing on Storhet Solutions (formerly, Igwet).

“The executives on CRN’s 2018 Channel Chiefs list stand out for their exceptional leadership, vision and commitment to the channel,” said Robert Faletra, Executive Chairman of The Channel Company. “These individuals deserve special recognition for their development and support of robust partner programs, innovative business strategy and significant contribution to the overall health of a vigorously growing channel.

We applaud each Channel Chief’s impressive record of accomplishments and look forward to their future successes.”

“While growing DH2i’s DxAdvantage Partner Program’s global presence has certainly been a priority—one Connor has met with flying colors—his innate ability to enable and empower our partner network to achieve the best possible outcomes is where Connor really shines,” said Don Boxley, CEO and Co-Founder, DH2i. “Bottom line, Connor does whatever it takes to make sure our partners identify or are provided opportunities and then close the deals.

For our partners, that means fast time to value, leading to dramatically increased revenues and profits.”

The 2018 CRN Channel Chiefs list, including the 50 Most Influential Channel Chiefs, is featured online at and will appear in the February 2018 issue of CRN.
