SaaS distribution trade association board now led by Jake Wallace

The Cloud Software Association, the SaaS partnership network, has
appointed Jake Wallace, strategic partnerships manager at AWeber, as
Chair of the board. Wallace will further the association's mission of
bringing together SaaS vendors, resellers, distributors, marketplaces,
channels, platforms and API services to build the market for cloud
software distribution.

"Jake's deep knowledge of software partnerships and integrations, as
well as his dedication to collaboration, make him the ideal Chair," said
Sunir Shah, President and founder of the Cloud Software Association.
"For example, having run successful Slack communities in the past, Jake
saw the value this type of collaboration could bring to the association,
which has enabled our members to connect and continue conversations from
our annual SaaS Connect retreat."

As the current partnerships manager for AWeber, a global provider of
email marketing and automation software, Wallace drives customer and

SaaS Connect is invaluable to partnership leaders across SaaS," said
Wallace. "Sharing honest struggles, big wins and best practices with
fellow partnership and integration professionals is truly moving the
market for SaaS distribution forward."
