Heather K. Margolis, Founder, Channel Maven Consulting
After years in financial services, high tech, and the obligatory 8 months at a start-up, Heather K. Margolis founded Channel Maven Consulting in 2009. Having graduated from Babson College's entrepreneurial MBA program, and the weight of 4 generations of entrepreneurs behind her, she dove in enthusiastically. Having led channel programs for companies like EMC, EqualLogic, and Dell, Heather focused on what she knows best, helping channel organizations of all sizes build smarter channel programs, manage channel relationships to find added value, and engage their communities through social and traditional media. Continued focus, almost 5 years, a move from Boston to Boulder, and all the necessary war-wounds later, Heather continues to grow Channel Maven from it's original sole-preneurship to a small business with all the HR, finance, and hiring challenges that come with it. She wouldn't want it any other way.
