Exeter, RI, June 5, 2014 – Carousel Industries, a leader in managed services, video solutions, data and visual communications, announced today announced that Lucy Graham, Director of Marketing at Carousel Industries, has been named to the CRN 2014 Women of the Channel list, and has been recognized as one of this year’s inaugural Power 50 Solution Providers. The annual Women of the Channel list highlights the accomplishments of female executives within vendor, distribution, and solution provider organizations, and the impact they are having on the advancement of the IT channel. The Power 50 honors an elite subset of female executives at solution provider organizations who are extending their respective company's sphere of influence as trusted advisers.

Graham, who has earned a position on CRN's 'Women of the Channel' list for three consecutive years in a row and who this year joins the Power 50, has been at Carousel for six years. During the last year, she helped drive Carousel's overall marketing strategy by engaging the company's top partners and maximizing joint programs to increase its visibility and profitability in the marketplace.

"We are very proud that Lucy has been included in the CRN Power 50 and congratulate her on three consecutive years of making CRN's Women of the Channel' list," commented Daniel Edwards, Vice President, Marketing of Carousel Industries. "Lucy brings an enormous amount of drive and passion to her role, and has been instrumental in working with partners to raise Carousel's profile as a leading solution provider." 

“We are seeing a steady increase in the number of female executives making their mark in the solution provider community,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “The new Power 50 list shines a spotlight on both their contributions as individuals and the importance of the solution provider role in the success of their clients.
