Woburn, MA — September 27, 2021 — Kaspersky is excited to announce that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Lisa Kilpatrick, Head of Inside Sales for North America, as one of the IT channel’s 100 People You Don’t Know But Should for 2021. Each year this list honors the people working tirelessly behind the scenes to support not only their partners, but the broader channel ecosystem, as well.

The CRN editorial team compiles the list each year to bring well-deserved attention to the best and brightest who may not be as visible or well-known as some channel executives, but whose roles are just as important. The selections are based on feedback from leading solution providers and industry executives.

Lisa Kilpatrick has been a Kaspersky employee for over six years and has advanced her career within the company’s corporate structure by holding multiple sales and channel positions responsible for cybersecurity sales in the SMB and B2B business segments. As Head of Inside Sales for the North America, Lisa manages a team of account executives and provides them with the tools needed to drive sales by giving partners greater flexibility, control and ease of management.

“Over the past 6 years, Lisa has a tremendous impact on our sales team, helping us achieve unparalleled success in the channel,” said Matt Courchesne, head of channel for Kaspersky North America. “With a strong ownership mentality, Lisa has always strived to make improvements within Kaspersky, taking on additional projects to help align with the goals of our inside sales and channel teams. She continues to be a strong asset to the team, and we look forward to watching her achieve even greater success in the years to come.”

“There are truly talented folks who make game-changing, creative, and strategic decisions every day behind the scenes,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “With the 100 People You Don’t Know But Should, we are excited to shine a light on this exceptional group and honor them for their remarkably important work on behalf of their partners and their contributions to the IT channel at large.”

The 100 People You Don’t Know But Should will be featured in the October issue of CRN Magazine and can be found online at www.crn.com/100people.
