Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA), a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation (SEC), today announced that Erica Calise, Director, Government and Corporate Marketing, has been named to The Channel Company’s prestigious 2015 CRN® Women of the Channel. The annual list honors outstanding female executives across vendor channel organizations, distributors, solution providers and other women prominently involved in the IT channel ecosystem for their successes and the far-reaching impact they are having on the technology industry going forward.
This year’s Women of the Channel were carefully reviewed and selected by the editors of CRN based on their accomplishments and the influence they wield over the technology channel.
With more than 24 years of industry experience, Erica is responsible for managing and developing new opportunities in the government and education vertical markets.
