Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA) has announced that CRN has named John Sheehan, vice president of channel sales, to its list of 2018 Channel Chiefs. The executives on this annual list represent top leaders in the IT channel who excel at driving growth and revenue in their organizations through channel partners.

Channel Chief honorees are selected by CRN's editorial staff on the basis of their professional achievements, standing in the industry, dedication to the channel partner community, and strategies for driving future growth and innovation. Each of the 2018 Channel Chiefs has demonstrated loyalty and ongoing support for the IT channel by consistently promoting, defending and executing outstanding channel partner programs.

Sheehan's selection as one of 2018's Channel Chiefs is directly linked to his leadership and his ability to help increase Sharp's U.S. market share for both its professional and commercial displays. Under Sheehan's leadership over the past year, Sharp was able to capture more than 50 percent of the market's unit share by expanding the Sharp AQUOS BOARD interactive display product line to key verticals throughout the channel. He also helped lead Sharp to capture the number-one market position for large-format commercial TV displays within the U.S. channel.

"The executives on CRN's 2018 Channel Chiefs list stand out for their exceptional leadership, vision and commitment to the channel," said Robert Faletra, executive chairman, The Channel Company. "These individuals deserve special recognition for their development and support of robust partner programs, innovative business strategies and significant contributions to the overall health of a vigorously growing channel. We applaud each Channel Chief's impressive record of accomplishments and look forward to their future successes."

"We are thrilled that John Sheehan has been named a 2018 Channel Chief," said Doug Albregts, president and CEO, SIICA. "This award is a direct reflection of John's dedication to the channel and his hard work throughout the past year. We are looking forward to this coming year and seeing how John and his team continue to expand Sharp's marketing programs at both distribution and VARs, while simultaneously growing the reseller community."

The 2018 CRN Channel Chiefs list, including the 50 Most Influential Channel Chiefs, is featured online at and will appear in the February 2018 issue of CRN.
