LOS ANGELES, Nov. 6, 2023 -- Mission Cloud, a cloud managed services provider, and Amazon Web Services (AWS) Premier Tier Services Partner, is proud to announce that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has chosen Elena Shorb, Vice President, Channel & Alliances, as one of the 2023 Next-Gen Solution Provider Leaders. This list honors the exceptional individuals who are key contributors to driving growth and strategic direction for the companies they work for today and are poised to be tomorrow's channel innovators.

The third-annual Next-Gen Solution Provider Leaders list includes rising star executives, managers and directors, 40 years of age or younger, who have demonstrated clear leadership qualities in their roles at integrators, VARs, MSPs and other IT solution provider organizations.

With over eight years of channel sales experience, Elena has played a pivotal role in Mission Cloud's exponential growth. She has led a dynamic channel team that works in close collaboration with AWS, ensuring the delivery of exceptional customer outcomes.

It's a testament to the amazing team at Mission Cloud who work tirelessly to strengthen our partnership with AWS and provide exceptional value to our customers. Our success in the AWS marketplace, particularly in the area of Generative AI, shows how forward-thinking our company is. I want to emphasize that while we're constantly innovating and growing, we're also dedicated to promoting diversity, inclusion, and cloud education in underserved communities. I imagine a future where the tech world reflects the diversity of the challenges we're tackling, and this award pushes us closer to that goal."
