the leading enterprise Robotic Process Automation (RPA) software
company, announced today that CRN,
a brand of The
Channel Company
, has named Chris Morgan, global vice president of

CRN’s annual Channel Chiefs list includes IT leaders who continually
drive growth and revenue in their organization through their channel
partners, and who demonstrate exceptional leadership, vision and
commitment to their channel programs.

As organizations make shift to digital, the channel is under tremendous
pressure to invest in technologies that address the workplace of the
future. UiPath is deeply committed to the channel and empowers its
partners to address growing customers’ demand for RPA and artificial
intelligence technologies that support this digital transformation. To
that end, in 2018 the company:

  • Grew its partner community tenfold, starting from approximately 100
    partners to over 1,000 by year-end
  • Launched a Partner Acceleration
    Fund and Venture Innovation Fund
    to help partners prepare for the
    demand in RPA
  • Hosted its two first-ever Partner Forward events (in the U.S. and
    EMEA), supporting more than 900 attending partners
  • Introduced formal infrastructure to scale partner relationships,
    including tools such as the Partner Portal (offering deal registration
    and co-marketing) and the Business Partner Program (to empower
    partners to build RPA technical and sales skills)
  • Built out its partner sales team from three employees in the Americas
    to more than 50 globally to support strategic and regional partners

Morgan joined UiPath in early 2018 and has been the driving force behind
the company’s channel organization. Morgan has extensive experience
leading global business and channel development organizations at
technology companies, and is responsible for the development and
execution of all indirect pathways to marketing including value-added
resellers, distribution, global systems integrators and technical
alliances at UiPath. Prior to joining UiPath, Morgan was global vice
president of channels and distribution at Nutanix.

“UiPath saw unprecedented
in 2018 and two fundraises that value the company at $3

address and support the significant demand for our technology,” said
Craig Bumpus, chief revenue officer, UiPath. “Most importantly, our
channel network has allowed us to democratize RPA and drive the
Automation First era. We are proud of Chris’s accomplishments and the
partner-first culture he’s helped instill at UiPath.”
