LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 24, 2012) - TeleSign, the market leader in Internet fraud prevention and Intelligent Authentication, today announced that Stacy Stubblefield, co-founder and vice president of product strategy, has been recognized by UBM Channel's CRN Magazine (Channel Reseller Network) as one of the Women of the Channel in 2012. Honorees in CRN's 2012 Women of the Channel list have made a name for themselves as influential leaders within their own company, and the IT channel as a whole.
Executives on the list were selected by the editors of CRN Magazine based on nominations and applications from a field of vendor channel organizations, distributors and solution providers. Criteria for selection was based on the role each applicant played over the past year in driving revenue for their company and the steps they've taken to evangelize the importance of the IT channel.
Stubblefield is responsible for developing the foundation of TeleSign's fraud prevention product suite. In her role as vice president of product strategy, Stubblefield works closely with TeleSign's CTO to create and execute on innovative tech products that solve revenue-threatening problems. Stubblefield's extensive knowledge about fraudster psychology and tactics has allowed her to speak with many organizations to help them better understand the growing fraud climate. Her familiarity with this ever changing problem is critical for both TeleSign and the clients they serve.
"Stacy truly understands the crucial market need for groundbreaking fraud prevention products and works closely with our channel partners. The expertise and leadership she provides is invaluable to the company," said Steve Jillings, CEO, TeleSign. "This recognition speaks volumes of her accomplishments and her future."
