SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Gigamon Inc. (NYSE: GIMO), the leader in traffic visibility solutions, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Gigamon CEO, Paul Hooper, to its 2016 list of Top 100 Executives. This latest recognition comes on the heels of Gigamon being recognized in CRN's inaugural 2016 Security 100 List.
The annual CRN list recognizes leaders from the technology industry who have played an integral role in shaping today's IT channel, whether by driving huge cultural shifts, creating rich new opportunities or forging innovative new routes to success.
"The executives on our 2016 Top 100 list have led their companies to extraordinary achievements, both technological and entrepreneurial," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "We congratulate each of this year's Top 100 Executives and celebrate their trailblazing contributions to the advancement of the IT channel."
A seasoned networking and high-tech industry veteran, Hooper has led Gigamon into accelerating double-digit company growth since taking the helm as CEO. The development of innovative channel programs that drive new revenue opportunities for VARs, distributors and solution providers - such as Gigamon's recently launched Professional Service Partner Program - has been critical to the company's continued success. Additionally, Hooper's strategy to expand Gigamon's worldwide partner ecosystem has significantly accelerated the adoption of Gigamon's leading network visibility solutions around the globe.
"Our joint customers are facing serious challenges in trying to implement network protections that can keep up with data volumes and threat complexity," said Paul Hooper, CEO, Gigamon. "Gigamon has redefined effective security through the power of pervasive visibility and, by extension, empowered our partners to lead the market in delivering holistic, multi-tiered defenses that scale better and detect threats faster."
The Top 100 Executives list will be featured in the August 2016 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/top100.
