Ivanti has made two global channel hires.


Ivanti’s Michelle Hodges

The first is new senior vice president, global channels and alliances, Michelle Hodges. Hodges has global experience working with companies in international expansion both in operating and go-to-market strategies. Most recently, she led the channel business at GitLab during its IPO.

Ivanti cited Hodges’ experience of building global channels at companies like Microsoft, VMware and Business Objects.

“I am excited to join Ivanti and eager to get to work building value for our partner community,” said Hodges. “There is tremendous opportunity in the Ivanti Partner Program.”

The exec said her first focus will be on building Ivanti’s ecosystem strategy and expanding its programs around the world.

“I am committed to driving impact for Ivanti by building value and profitability for our partners across our strategy, programs and go-to-market,” she said.

Here’s our list of channel people on the move in October.


Ivanti’s John Beuchert

At the same time, John Beuchert joins Ivanti as VP, global partner programs and strategy.

Beuchert is a seasoned channel executive wit a background in SaaS and Fortune 500 companies. He has held leadership channel roles with brands such as Citrix, CA, Veritas, and Symantec. He was most global head of partner programs and operations for Freshworks.

“Joining Ivanti is a great opportunity to build a strong partner community and make a real impact for our partners and customers,” said Beuchert. “I was attracted to the culture of collaboration and opportunity at Ivanti and am eager to bring this same culture to our partner community. Ivanti has the right solutions to help organizations solve the problems presented in today’s hybrid work environment and address the needs of IT teams and employees.”

More Partner Benefits and Support

Ivanti COO Dennis Kozak said he was “thrilled” for Hodges and Beuchert to join the company.
