Our key partner Infoblox has hired a new channel chief. Lori Cornmesser started April 30 as Infoblox’s vice president of worldwide global partners.
Empowered built strong rapport with Lori during her tenure with Ixia, and CEO Brian Hepburn was quoted in the exclusive story in CRN announcing her new role.
Lori Cornmesser “commands a seat at the table of the executive team and more thoughtful discussion on how to leverage and support the partner community,” Hepburn said. “This is going to be really positive. I’m a big fan of Lori’s, she’s going to be a great addition to the team.”
Infoblox, and the NetMRI solution, has been a major focus area, and engine of growth, for Empowered.
“Infoblox has been the only vendor to continually invest in network automation over the past several years, with the company adding new features, device certifications, and new versions of the vendor’s NetMRI software three times per year. Other vendors haven’t put as much work into continuous development of their network automation products,” said Hepburn.
