SAN DIEGO, Calif., February 06, 2023 - Wrike, the most powerful work management platform, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized Archie Sharma, Vice President Partnerships, Business & Corporate Development at Wrike, on its 2023 Channel Chiefs list. Every year, this list honors the IT channel executives who work tirelessly to advance the channel agenda and deliver successful channel partner programs and strategies.

Sharma is a technology executive with over 15 years of experience leading and executing across SaaS, CWM, CRM, digital advertising, multi-sided marketplaces, and technology businesses. He currently oversees partner, ecosystem, and business development at Wrike, where he grew partner revenue by 190%+ in Q4 2022. In addition, Sharma reinvigorated the company’s existing channel program to build a world-class partnerships team, extending from one person to nine strong. 

“I believe that channels and partners are one of the few ways to scale non-linear & efficient growth in SaaS companies today,” said Sharma. “I am proud of the growth we realized across the channel program last year – both in revenue and headcount – and am optimistic about the continued health of the program. It’s an honor to be named in this prestigious list amongst my peers.” 

The 2023 Channel Chiefs have helped their solution provider partners and customers navigate an increasingly complex landscape of interconnected challenges and shifting industry dynamics.
