Long View, one of North America’s most powerful providers of Hybrid IT solutions and services, is pleased to announce that Morreau, the company’s Director of Licensing and Software Asset Management, was named today to the prestigious 2016 CRN® Women of the Channel list.

This marks the second straight year that Morreau has earned a spot on the Women of the Channel index—compiled by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company.

“Sarah cares deeply about taking care of our clients, and she ensures that our team is there to walk all of our clients through the challenging world of licensing and software—every step of the way,” says Kevin Crowe, Long View’s Vice President of Procurement Services.

“This is a world that can be complex, overwhelming, and tedious at the same time.

The women executives who comprise this annual list span the IT channel, representing vendors, distributors, solution providers and other organizations that figure prominently in the channel ecosystem. Each is recognized for her outstanding leadership, vision, and unique role in driving channel growth and innovation.
