Strong Channel Focus Earns Rebit Recognition

LONGMONT, CO – March 17, 2009 – Rebit™ Inc., the company dedicated to relieving the burden of backup for PC users, today announced that Charlene Murphy, executive vice president of sales and marketing, has been named a 2009 Channel Chief by the Everything Channel’s CRN. CRN Channel Chiefs are recognized as influential executives who consistently defend, promote and execute effective channel partner programs and strategies.

Ms. Murphy launched Rebit’s Reseller partner program in 2008, and the company is currently recruiting channel partners seeking to meet the demand for easier-to-use and more competitive personal backup and recovery solutions by their customers.

Rebit was named one of the “25 Coolest Emerging Tech Vendors” by CRN for its innovative, cutting-edge technology in August 2008.

To drive greater market penetration and increased sales for its Reseller partners, Rebit is offering several exclusive programs, including dedicated sales, marketing and support teams, an online portal, a demonstration and evaluation program, enhanced marketing programs and product specials.

“I am pleased to be included with such an esteemed group of Channel professionals by the leading IT Channel publication,” commented Charlene Murphy, executive vice president of sales and marketing, Rebit, Inc. “We are excited about the opportunities we are building with our Channel partners and look forward to growing our Channel presence.”

This is the seventh consecutive year that CRN has developed the Channel Chief list. Top Channel Chiefs were identified based on criteria including policy and program innovations made during the past year, the amount of revenue their company generates through partners, their willingness to speak out publicly on behalf of the channel, and the number of years they have dedicated to channel activities.

“Effective channel executives consistently ensure that the Channel’s voice is heard when strategic decisions are being made and continually nurture mutually profitable relationships,” said Robert C. DeMarzo, senior vice president and editorial director, Everything Channel. “This year’s Channel Chiefs are strong channel advocates and we applaud them for their successful partner programs and strategies.” For additional information on the CRN Channel Chief list, go to

Rebit is a self-contained backup appliance. Just plug the Rebit backup drive into the PC’s USB port, and it quickly and silently goes to work. There’s no software to install, no confusing configuration settings, and no complicated schedules to setup.
