Paolo Del Nibletto, the long-time Editor of CDN – Computer Dealer News, is now the inaugural Editorial Director for the Canadian Channel Chiefs Council (C4).
“The Canadian Channel Chiefs Council is a growing organization that will benefit from the channel knowledge that Paolo will bring,” says Fawn Annan, the chair of the C4. “His 17 years as a journalist and editor with Computer Dealer News ensure he has the skills required to help take the Council to the next level.”
The Canadian Channel Chiefs Council is the voice of technology channel professionals in Canada. Membership consists of IT vendors, solution providers and distributors that are on the front lines of solving major IT business challenges.
Corinne Sharp, the Council’s new president, said the addition of an editorial director to the organization’s small but powerful team guarantees the value of the C4 mission and mandate will be communicated widely to channel organizations ranging from startups to industry leaders.
“Joining the Canadian Channel Chiefs Council – on a full-time basis – is an exciting new chapter in my career,” says Del Nibletto. “While leaving CDN – Computer Dealers News was a hard decision, I know it’s time to pass the torch and I have full confidence that the most trusted brand in IT channel news is in good hands.”
Del Nibletto’s mandate with the C4 will be to identify and attract born in the cloud vendors and next generation channel companies. He will also turn the ChannelChiefs.ca Web site into one of the premier online sources for membership news and insight.
On top of these duties, Del Nibletto will be working closely with board members on a special team called the Research Committee. The C4 Research Committee has been tasked to develop new and informative research reports not just for members but the channel community in Canada as well.
In 2017, the C4 Research Committee launched a special report outlining the state of cloud adoption in Canada. This unique piece of research was spearheaded by the C4 and included highly respected partners such as IDC Canada and Ryerson University.
“C4 has been a passion of mine since it was founded in 2012. Since that time, the Council has seen a lot of growth. Now with a new President on board and my role as C4 Editorial Director, I believe the sky is the limit for C4 and channel professionals everywhere,” Del Nibletto said.
The Not-for-Profit C4 is dedicated to advancing the growth of channel professionals through education, research, events, and advocacy and it is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.
