SOUTHLAKE, TX., February 8, 2024 – Gradient Cyber, the mid-market leader in MXDR, is proud to announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Steve Chappell, Gradient Cyber’s Chief Revenue and Operations Officer, to the prestigious 2024 CRN® Channel Chiefs list, which recognizes the IT vendor and distribution executives who are driving strategy and setting the channel agenda for their companies.

This empowers them to confidently address a broader market.”
