SAN DIEGO - September 19, 2016 — Leading IT news source, The Channel Company, today announced that ESET Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Gerald Choung, has been named to The Channel Company’s Top Midmarket IT Executive list.

This annual list honors influential vendor and solution provider executives who have demonstrated an exceptionally strong commitment to the midmarket.

With a career that has spanned multiple Fortune 500 technology companies such as Microsoft, Oracle and Qualcomm, Choung brings more than 20 years of experience to the technology industry and to ESET, the fifth-largest IT security company globally. His business acumen is bolstered with a strong analytical and sales leadership background, with proven hands-on execution results in partner channel development, enterprise software sales and sales operations. While ESET services small business and enterprise customers alike, the midmarket is a significant part of ESET's customer base.

ESET's installation service, Rip and Replace, is one example of how the company prioritizes midmarket companies. The service makes migrating from one security solution to ESET as painless as possible, with a streamlined process that works 100 percent of the time, without affecting the performance of the machines (or systems). Also, all supporting materials are designed with the midmarket in mind, acknowledging that most organizations of this size don't have IT professionals on staff who are seasoned security experts. ESET provides ongoing U.S.-based support throughout the customer lifecycle, ensuring that midmarket organizations have access to resources when they need them.

“The Channel Company and Midsize Enterprise Summit are proud to recognize these individuals, and the companies they represent, for their remarkable efforts to meet the unique IT needs of this fast-growing industry,” said Robert C. DeMarzo, senior vice president of event content and strategy, The Channel Company. “We are happy to honor the winners at this year’s Midsize Enterprise Summit West event this month in Austin, Texas, the nation’s largest gathering of midmarket senior IT executives and the ideal venue in which to honor these deserving leaders. We congratulate each of the honorees and look forward to their continued success.”

The Top Midmarket IT Executives List will be announced at the 2016 Midsize Enterprise Summit West at the JW Marriot Hotel in Austin, Texas on September 20, 2016.
