Rachel Schaeffer, ACW’s Big Impact Winner for Q3 2022, started her professional journey in another industry; she spent the first part of her career in commercial and residential finance. After literally losing everything in 2007, she sought a career that was more “recession-resistant” – while still providing the opportunities and scale she loved. That decision led her to an inside sales job in healthcare IT; she was promoted into the channel soon after and hasn’t looked back.
Today Rachel serves as the Global Director of Channel, Strategic Alliances at SuccessKPI, where she focuses on strategic partnerships, like AWS. She’s also an engaged community volunteer, a competitive equestrian, an entrepreneur, a sometime boxer…and Ms. New Jersey Corporate America 2023. She is devoted to family, friends, and mentoring other women in the channel and in the tech space. Rachel sat down recently with eChannelNEWS’s Julian Lee for the “Women in Tech” podcast.
