EXETER, RI, May 17, 2021 — NWN Carousel, the leading Cloud Communications Service Provider (CCSP) delivering solutions for today’s work-from-anywhere environment, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Gina Thompson, Vice President of Cloud and Carrier Operations, to its 2021 Power 60 Solution Providers list, an elite subgroup of honorees chosen from the highly regarded Women of the Channel list.
The women honored on this year’s list pushed forward with comprehensive business plans, marketing initiatives and other innovative ideas to support their partners and customers, helping them through the uncertainty brought on by the global COVID-19 pandemic. CRN celebrates these exceptional women for their leadership, dedication and channel advocacy.
The Power 60 Solution Providers are chosen by the CRN editorial team based on their contributions, expertise and dedication to building strong solution provider businesses. The award recognizes an exclusive subgroup of elite industry role models who continue to drive professional success through leadership and dedication to their own organizations and the entire IT channel.

As a member of the NWN Carousel leadership team, Thompson has successfully developed Cloud strategies across business units to achieve operational excellence, drive alignment and optimize processes for scalable growth.  In 2020, Thompson developed and implemented a strategic plan to structure, organize, standardize, and identify new opportunities to refine and support the growth of NWN Carousel’s Cloud and Carrier businesses.  This was accomplished by formalizing the company’s Partner Support and Order Management teams that champion the company’s mission of being “Customer Success Obsessed.”

“CRN’s 2021 Women of the Channel list acknowledges accomplished, influential women whose dedication, hard work, and leadership accelerate channel growth,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “We are proud to honor them for their many accomplishments and look forward to their continued contributions to the IT channel.”
