Datto’s own Samantha Ciaccia was recently honored as a Cloud Girls Rising Star by Cloud Girls. Sam was recognized as a woman to watch in the cloud community due to her efforts to help Datto partners go to market by engaging different aspects of Datto’s business. As the Channel Engagement Manager at Datto, these efforts include marketing, partner programs, sales, and business development.

"Our goal was to honor and recognize women who have truly innovated in the cloud space,” said Jo Peterson, founder of Cloud Girls and vice president of converged cloud and data services at Clarify360. “We were overwhelmed by the quality and caliber of applicants we received.”

The Cloud Girl Rising award was created to honor women in the telecom and IT channel who have shown leadership and innovation in the emerging cloud space as well as to inspire more women to step forward and follow their example.

“It's a true honor and humbling experience to be recognized by these two organizations, who are making huge strides for women in the IT community. This kind of recognition helps motivate me to work even harder as I continue to be active within the industry as an advocate for both women and millennials,” said Sam.

Prior to the Cloud Girls Rising Star, Sam was the recipient of the 2015 CompTIA Channel Changers award, she was also recognized in 2014 and 2015 as the “CRN Women of the Channel”, the 2015 CRN “Up and Comers” list, the 2014 MSPmentor 250: Top People In Managed Services.
