“To be recognized as a Channel Chief is always an honor for me, but this year I am especially proud of what we have accomplished in the channel,” said Wensley. “Our team at ScalePad has worked hard to develop our solution in order to bring value to our Partners, so to be included in this list with so many thought leaders in the IT industry is truly a reflection of the work and dedication our team of Rocketeers has put in over the last year.”
Giraldo serves as ScalePad’s CXO, helming it’s partner success team. He has been a consummate IT professional and product strategist, and provides thought leadership to the industry through his own experience building his own MSP business.

With these additions, we look to improve our Partner’s client relationships with the goal of getting clients to modernize their technology to mitigate risk.”
“CRN’s 2022 Channel Chiefs recognition is given exclusively to the foremost channel executives who consistently design, promote, and execute effective partner programs and strategies,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “We’re thrilled to recognize the tireless work and unwavering commitment these honorees put into fostering outstanding business innovation and building strong partner programs to drive channel engagement and success.”
In the past year, investment from Integrity Growth Partners has enabled ScalePad to expand into six additional countries in EMEA, while adding more integration tools. The ScalePad Strategy feature-set was developed to address the challenges of measuring, monitoring, and communicating risk by making data actionable through a technology health score, known as the Digital Maturity Index, (DMI™). This score provides critical insights and the framework for immediate action by Partners to improve their clients experience.
ScalePad also acquired Backup Radar, an end-to-end automation platform for backup monitoring, reporting, and compliance. Combined, the two solutions provide IT service providers with the ability to achieve better technology outcomes through data-driven insights, automation, and scalability.
