Christine is a tech journalist with over 20 years experience writing about IT, half of which has been spent exclusively covering the IT sales channel. From 2006-2009 she worked as the editor of Channel Business, before moving on to ChannelPro where she was editor and, latterly, senior editor.
In her role at ChannelPro, she oversaw the day-to-day running of the site, including both writing and editing content, commissioning specialist writers, attending key industry and vendor events, and generally building her expertise in the field.
Since 2016, she has been a freelance writer, editor, and copywriter and continues to cover the channel in addition to broader IT themes, notably cloud and security. Her work for ChannelPro since moving into freelance work has included analysis of the changing trends of how vendors work with their channel partners, their role in increasing sustainability in the IT sector, and breaking news. She has also written more broadly for ITPro on the topic of the challenges faced by women in tech, as well as women working in the IT channel.
In addition to writing, copywriting and editing, Christine provides media training, with a particular focus on explaining what the channel is and why it’s important to businesses.
