Sunnyvale, CA, February 23, 2009

Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc., a leading supplier of innovative computer products including hard disk drives, peripherals and biometric security solutions, today announced Lorne Wilson, Senior Vice President, Sales, Corporate Marketing, and New Products Group, has been named a 2009 Channel Chief by the Everything Channel’s CRN. CRN Channel Chiefs are recognized as influential executives who consistently defend, promote and execute effective channel partner programs and strategies

Since taking the channel sales and marketing leadership role for the Fujitsu Hard Disk Drive (HDD) business in January 2001, Wilson has significantly expanded the Fujitsu channel presence for Mobile, Enterprise HDD’s and new products business. His commitment and advocacy for the channel and Fujitsu partners remains a top priority. This year Wilson was selected to be a Channel Chief because of his success enabling solution providers to increase profitability and introduce new products. Several channel partners developed unique solutions for the healthcare industry utilizing the PalmSecure biometric sensor and 2.5-inch SAS Enterprise HDDs have enabled partners to compete against their larger rivals in the server market.

This is the seventh consecutive year that CRN has developed the Channel Chief list. Top Channel Chiefs were 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.

“CRN is the definitive voice in the IT channel and to be recognized as a Channel Chief for the seventh year is truly an honor,” said Lorne Wilson, Senior Vice President, Sales, Corporate Marketing and New Products Group, Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc. “More than ever, we are devoted to developing the channel products and programs our partners need to be successful. This award marks a great achievement for our organization, but moving forward we are focused on how we can adapt to make our partners successful in a difficult economy.

“Effective channel executives consistently ensure that the Channel’s voice is heard when strategic decisions are being made and continually nurture mutually profitable relationships,” said Robert C. DeMarzo, SVP/Editorial Director, Everything Channel. “This year’s Channel Chiefs are strong channel advocates and we applaud them for their successful partner programs and strategies.”
