CHICAGO – May 20, 2019 – CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Trustwave Vice President of Worldwide Channel Sales Suzanne Swanson to its prestigious 2019 Women of the Channel list. The leaders on this annual list are from all areas of the IT channel ecosystem; representing technology suppliers, distributors, solution providers, and other IT organizations.
