Each of these five women has shown exceptional channel leadership as the ecosystem undergoes an exciting evolution by investing heavily in technologies enabling the workplace of the future, such as RPA. UiPath works diligently to educate and empower channel partners around the world to meet the skyrocketing demand for RPA through a drumbeat of partner communications, partner events, activities, and resources.

  • Formed an alliance with Deloitte to jointly develop and deliver RPA solutions to its clients with a focus on implementing and managing large-scale, transformational digital programs

All five women named to CRN’s list played vital roles in building the infrastructure for UiPath’s partner ecosystem:

  • Chin drove 2.4x partner bookings growth, representing 50% of UiPath’s 2019 business
  • Hausler established and led a global marketing strategy and team to drive co-marketing with more than 180 partners, generating more than 2,500 net new joint customers across every geography

  • Ng established foundational marketing and communications programs during the first-ever year of channel marketing operations in the APAC territory, propelling partner growth that drove 80% of new business in the region
  • Zhang built meaningful GSI relationships with Deloitte, KPMG, PwC, Cognizant, and NTT in Greater China while also developing global-level infrastructure to scale partner relationships, including tools like the Partner Portal which offers deal registration and co-marketing resources

“At UiPath, we’re committed to providing our partners with the education, delivery, and selling frameworks needed to be successful,” said Daniel Dines, CEO of UiPath. “Our achievements are powered directly by Cheryln, Janette, Gena, Dawn and Jessie’s efforts. I’m extremely proud to work with these women, and excited for them to receive this recognition.”

Over the next year, UiPath will continue to help its partners address and support the significant demand for RPA technology and position value added services and complementary technologies around RPA and AI. The company will continue to evolve its strategy, programs, policies, and systems to help partners choose to invest in UiPath every day.
