Sunnyvale, CA, February 27, 2006

Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc., one of the world's leading suppliers of innovative computer products including hard disk drives, peripherals and biometric security solutions, today announced that Lorne Wilson, senior vice president, sales and marketing was named a Channel Chief by CMP Media's Computer Reseller News (CRN) Magazine – a respected source of information for VARs and technology integrators. CRN Channel Chiefs are a group of influential executives selected based on their ability to consistently promote and execute effective channel partner programs and strategies.

This year Lorne Wilson was recognized for his success developing the Fujitsu Storage Group channel program and, in so doing, advancing the hard disk drive industry as a whole. In 2005 the Fujitsu Channel team, led by Mr. Wilson, helped continue the rapid adoption of the Serial interface in both the mobile segment with Serial ATA (SATA) and in enterprise markets with Serial Attached SCSI (SAS).

"Through years of working in the channel I've learned that the key to success is to develop personal, interactive relationships with partners," said Mr. Wilson. "I am honored and humbled to have been recognized by CRN again this year but the real acknowledgment should go to the amazing Fujitsu channel team. Together we've worked hard to develop a strong program and we'll continue on that path in the months and years to come."

Lorne Wilson is a veteran Channel Chief having been selected annually since 2002 when the program was instated. Top Channel Chiefs are chosen based on criteria including policy and program innovations made during the past year, the amount of revenue their company generates through partners, their willingness to speak out publicly on behalf of the channel, and the number of years they have dedicated to channel activities.

"Effective channel executives can mobilize an army of Solution Providers to increase their sales efforts," said Dan Dignam, vice president/publisher, CRN. "Solution Providers are always looking for strong advocates, such as the 2006 ‘Channel Chiefs', and will embrace them for potential partnerships and successful program advice."
