Chris GardnerChris Gardner has been a successful sales and marketing leader for growth-stage enterprise technology companies in the cybersecurity software and AI space since 2003.  His experience building channel partner programs started back in 2003 with Ivanti (formerly Lumension), after which he led the channel for BakBone Software (acquired by Dell).  From there Chris was brought in repeatedly by Silicon Valley venture capital teams as head of sales for multiple cybersecurity software and solution companies including EdgeWave, Wontok SafeCental, Sendio, Proficio and AttackIQ.

Chris commented: “I’m very excited about the value PartnerOptimizer solutions bring to channel teams, whether they’re well-established or growth-stage.  Finding the right partners and activating them is a huge yet-to-be solved problem for most, if not all, channel teams, and I fully respect and trust the SaaSMAX approach.   In fact, I wish I had had access to PartnerOptimizer’s partner data, insights and predictive analytics when I was building partner programs that needed to recruit and sell through MSPs and MSSPs, especially in the cybersecurity space.”
