LOS ANGELES, May 8, 2023 — Mission Cloud, a cloud managed services provider and Amazon Web Services (AWS) Premier Tier Services Partner, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Elena Shorb, Vice President of Channels & Alliances, as a 2023 Women of the Channel Power 80 Solution Provider — a subset of prominent executives selected from the CRN 2023 Women of the Channel list.

The CRN 2023 Women of the Channel honorees bring their creativity, strategic thinking, and leadership to bear, turning their unique talents toward driving success for their customers and technology partners. The annual Power 80 Solution Provider list honors the most influential women in leadership at some of the country’s most prominent solution providers, based on their remarkable expertise, channel advocacy, and contributions to building solution provider businesses that thrive.

“To be recognized as a prominent executive in the 2023 Women of the Channel is truly an honor and I can’t express my gratitude enough to my colleagues at Mission Cloud, AWS and CRN,” said Shorb. “I am grateful for the opportunities to work with our customers and technology partners, and to collaborate with other exceptional women in the cloud channel community. I am committed to continuing to drive success and innovation in our industry, and to empower and inspire other women to achieve their full potential."

The women who populate the Power 80 Solution Provider list have gone above and beyond with their extraordinary commitment to the IT channel community, implementing strategies that have accelerated the success of their customers and technology partners—and the broader channel ecosystem as a result.

Shorb brings over eight years of Channel Sales experience to her role in leading Mission Cloud's strategic partnership with Amazon Web Services and their key ISV Partners. She comes from G2 Tech Group, one of the Advanced Consulting Partners that merged to form Mission Cloud Services in 2017. Through her roles at G2 and Mission Cloud, Shorb has been an instrumental member of the AWS Partner Ecosystem since its launch and has grown and developed Mission Cloud's partnership to align with the AWS program.

Shorb’s key accomplishments over the past year include:

  • Establishing Diversity reporting in all of Mission Cloud’s messaging to AWS and Key ISV Partners
  • Growing the solution provider business by 70% year over year
  • Launching Mission Cloud’s AWS Marketplace Business which generated numerous Net New Logos for Mission Cloud in 2022 
  • Producing over 100 AWS and customer events in the US in 2022 
  • Creating a new customer acquisition growth channel within the AWS Ecosystem by leveraging AWS Marketplace 

“We are ecstatic to announce this year’s honorees and shine a light on these women for their significant achievements, knowing that what they’ve accomplished has paved the way for continued success within the IT channel,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The channel is stronger because of them, and we look forward to seeing what they do next.” 

“Elena is an integral part of our team and everything we accomplish at Mission Cloud and has played a major role in our growth and success since joining the company," said Ted Stuart, Chief Revenue Officer at Mission Cloud. “She truly exemplifies hard work, innovativeness, and all of Mission’s core values. No one is more deserving of this honor than Elena and we are all proud to call her one of Mission’s own.”

The 2023 Women of the Channel list will be featured in the June issue of CRN Magazine, with online coverage starting May 8 at
