March Madness isn’t just for athletes and sports fans! Channel partners and industry leaders now have their own bracket to follow.
CRN is holding its fourth annual Channel Madness Tournament of Chiefs, and Xerox’s own Darren Cassidy, President of Xerox’s US Channels Group, has been selected as one of 32 executives that will be featured in the competition. Each of the 32 chiefs nominated is ranked among the industry’s most influential, making this both a prestigious nomination – and also a lot of fun. Here’s how it works.
The tournament of Chiefs pits some of the channel’s best-known executives against each other in head-to-head battles where CRN readers vote to determine the victors.
Voting opens today at 10am ET and the tournament wraps up on Thursday, April 5th where the Champion will be announced.
Voting for Round 1 is now closed.
