Los Angeles, CA – June 20, 2013 – TeleSign, an Internet security and authentication leader, today announced that Stacy Stubblefield, TeleSign's co-founder and vice president of product strategy has been recognized by UBM Tech Channel's CRN as one of the top Women of the Channel. CRN’s annual list recognizes nearly 300 female executives across vendor channel organizations, distributors and solution providers for their accomplishments over the past year, and the far-reaching impact they are having on the technology industry going forward. This year’s Women of the Channel were chosen by the editors of CRN based on their achievements as executives and the amount of influence they wield over the technology channel. These women represent a changing trend in a traditionally male dominated industry.
As VP of Product Strategy, Stacy Stubblefield is responsible for developing and executing the foundation of TeleSign’s fraud prevention products. She has been leading TeleSign’s product strategy since the launch of the company more than eight years ago. As part of the founding team, Stubblefield conceptualized and developed the company's platform and patented technology and now works closely with the CTO to create and execute innovative products that solve major security and fraud problems. Stubblefield’s experience and knowledge has enabled her to speak at many industry events and consult with leading organizations, educating them about the dynamic fraud market.
“We honor and congratulate this list of influential women who are dedicated to supporting the mission of the channel,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, UBM Tech Channel. “For years, we have identified and celebrated the women who have made an indelible mark on the technology industry through unmatched innovation and razor focus on meeting the needs of the IT channel community.”
“Stacy truly understands the mind of a fraudster and is an expert in creating effective identity confirmation products,” said Steve Jillings, CEO, TeleSign. “We are very proud of Stacy and this recognition speaks immensely of her accomplishments and her future in our industry.”
A special feature of the Women of the Channel is in the June issue of CRN magazine and expanded coverage of The 100 Most Powerful Women of the Channel will be featured online at www.crn.com.
