"I am beyond honored to have not only been named to the Women of the Channel list, but to also be recognized on the Power 100 list. My time in the channel has taught me so much and only continues to do so - that's part of why I love it so much," said Butler, vice president, channels, Infor. "Leigh and Annette have dedicated so much of their time and efforts to continually improve and innovate our channel operations and could not be more deserving of the recognition of being named to this year's list."

Cunningham joined Infor in 2016 as regional vice president, responsible for all channel partners representing multiple Infor solutions in the UK, Ireland and Benelux. Lebow is the director for the Infor Partner Network (IPN). She is responsible for bringing tools, resources and enablement programs to channel and alliance partners.
