ROCHESTER, N.Y., 6 February 2023 – Kodak Alaris is delighted to announce that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized Leonel Da Costa, Sales Managing Director for the Americas region, on its 2023 Channel Chiefs list. Every year, this list honors the IT channel executives who work tirelessly to advance the channel agenda and deliver successful channel partner programs and strategies.
Da Costa has more than 25 years of experience deploying growth strategies within the large enterprise and government segment. He was appointed Sales Managing Director of the Americas region in April 2021 and works closely with customers and partners in the United States, Canada and Latin America.

“I am honored to be recognized as a 2023 Channel Chief,” Da Costa said. “Kodak Alaris is a channel-first company, and our partners are integral to our go-to-market and growth strategy. I look forward to continuing to collaborate with my team to further strengthen our partner network, build solution expertise to deliver even greater value, and ultimately grow our partners’ bottom line.”
“Leonel is widely respected and has a deep understanding of the challenges that our customers and partners face today. His recognition as one of CRN's 2023 Channel Chiefs is well deserved and a reflection of his strong leadership and commitment to creating new business opportunities for our partner ecosystem and providing industry-leading levels of service and support,” said Global Vice President of Sales, Cassio Vaquero.
The 2023 Channel Chiefs have helped their solution provider partners and customers navigate an increasingly complex landscape of interconnected challenges and shifting industry dynamics.
