SAN DIEGO, CA, Jul 26, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --Overland Storage (NASDAQ: OVRL), the trusted global provider of effortless data management and data protection solutions across the data lifecycle, today announced that Jillian Mansolf, vice president of global sales and marketing at Overland Storage, has been recognized by Everything Channel's CRN Magazine as one of the "Power 100" Most Powerful Women of the Channel in 2011. This annual list recognizes female executives for their accomplishments over the past year, based on their achievements as executives and the amount of influence they wield over the technology channel. This year's Women of the Channel were chosen by the editors of CRN Magazine from a field of vendor channel organizations, distributors and solution providers.

"This year's Women of the Channel list honors those female executives who epitomize success within the IT channel -- a traditionally male-centric industry. Whether they come from tier-one vendors, VAR500 solution providers or just bring a bevy of channel experience that cannot be ignored, the 2011 Women of the channel list will recognize the most influential women of the channel based on their overall achievements, and their influence in the technology industry," said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, Everything Channel.

Mansolf, who was also named to the list in 2010, currently oversees all aspects of global sales and marketing at Overland Storage, including all corporate and channel marketing, worldwide sales, order management and field engineering. She also spearheaded the company's initiative to sell branded data management and data protection solutions through its worldwide channel and launched the FastTrack Partner Program, which includes the company's first global and comprehensive partner portal. FastTrack features an integrated deal registration system with automated notifications and approvals, online training and customizable sales tools for partners.

"It's an honor to be named to the Power 100 List and recognized among the Most Powerful Women of the Channel by CRN Magazine for the second time," said Jillian Mansolf. "Overland is 100% committed to the channel and has made significant investments to enhance the support and service of our worldwide channel partners. Over the past year we have seen more than 20% growth in our active partner base and we remain dedicated to providing our partners with a solid foundation and the tools they need to grow their business and increase profitability."
