CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Anastasia Petrova (Head of Alliances EMEA) and Sheryl Wharff (VP Global Alliances Marketing) to its Women of the Channel list for 2022. This esteemed list honors the incredible accomplishments of female leaders in the IT channel. Those named on this annual list come from all corners of the IT channel — including vendors, distributors, and solution providers whose vision, expertise, and contributions make an impact on the industry every day.  


By bringing innovative concepts, strategic business planning and comprehensive channel initiatives to life, these extraordinary women support partners and customers with exceptional leadership. CRN celebrates these women, who are so deserving of recognition, for their constant dedication to channel excellence.  




Anastasia Petrova  

Anastasia looks after Quantexa’s partner ecosystem across EMEA, growing license revenue via strategic alliances, helping organizations to contextualize their data and make better operational decisions. Over the last year, Anastasia has signed two partnership agreements which led to joint pipeline growth of over 20%. These partnerships have included finalized go-to-market (GTM) and joint marketing strategies.



Sheryl Wharff 

Sheryl is responsible for helping Quantexa build its new partner program, working with the organization’s partners to drive integrated campaigns and generating revenue growth. In 2021, Sheryl built Quantexa’s first ever Partner Program, which is launching later this month. She has also built joint demand generation materials, and driven campaigns that have helped key alliances drive pipeline and revenue growth of 50% from 41%. As a result of her hard work and dedication, last year, Quantexa was awarded the Google Cloud Partner of the year for Financial Services. 


We are proud to once again recognize the remarkable leaders on this year’s Women of the Channel list. Their influence, confidence, and diligence continue to accelerate channel success significantly. Their accomplishments will inspire others, and we look forward to witnessing their future contributions to the channel.

Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company
