Climb Channel Solutions has promoted Kim Stevens to worldwide vice president of marketing.
“This strategic addition to the executive team marks a significant milestone in Climb’s commitment to driving value to our partners,” said the distributor.
Stevens’ global responsibility includes developing and executing a comprehensive marketing strategy, brand management and partner marketing.
She has had a 30-year career in designing, launching, and expanding partner sales plans and marketing programmes, often into new markets and with new products. She has spent the last year at Climb building its emerging technology portfolio.
Prior to joining Climb, she worked for The Channel Company (TCC). She previously led the Women of The Channel (WOTC) Leadership Network, an online community dedicated to helping women from across the IT channel thrive both professionally and personally.
"I take immense pride in being a part of a team that is wholeheartedly committed to nurturing exceptional partnerships with our strategic vendors and cherished customers,” said Stevens. “Together, we are well-positioned to take our brand, marketing endeavours, and client services to new heights.”
“This announcement comes at an exciting time for Climb as it continues to grow and expand its presence in Europe through organic growth and the recent acquisition of Data Solutions in Ireland. The addition of Kim represents a significant step towards realising Climb’s global marketing vision,” the firm said.
Climb CEO Dale Foster added: “Kim’s appointment is part of our company’s long-term growth strategy as we continue to expand our reseller coverage, operations, and marketing presence. With Kim’s expertise and leadership, we are confident that Climb will continue to set new standards of excellence in our industry.”
