Red Hat’s Katie Giglio
Giglio previously was director of product marketing, though she maintains she has worked closely with Red Hat’s ecosystem.
“While my background is product marketing, I have been within the partner ecosystem for the past four years,” she said. “I have worked with partners for 20 plus years at a variety of different companies. So partnering is really my way of life.”
In her new role, Giglio reports to Stefanie Chiras, senior VP of Red Hat’s partner ecosystem success. Giglio now leads Red Hat’s ecosystem development team.
“We have a collection of folks who help in terms of co-creating with those partners, and then also helping with any technology development, and then making sure that they’re in a readiness state in order to go to market in our field,” she told Channel Futures.
In the slideshow above, Giglio discusses her responsibilities, IBM, and the future of the Red Hat channel.
