Westcon Group is Cisco’s Global Distributor of the Year

Distributor Westcon Group has been presented with two awards at this year’s Cisco Partner Summit, held last week in Hawaii. Westcon was named “Global Distributor of the Year” and “Multi-Theatre Partner of the Year,” an award which has never before been awarded to a distributor.

Tom Dolan, President and CEO of Westcon Group, commented: “These awards mark a key milestone for us in our relationship with Cisco. We are proud of the role we have played in strengthening Cisco’s global reach. By bringing multi-national solutions programs into emerging markets and providing single point order capabilities for large multi-national deployments, we have been able to bring unique value to our customers. Cisco has recognized our ability-along with our loyal multi-national customers–to build a highly effective, forward supply chain for Cisco’s products and solutions.”

Riordan Maynard, CEO of Touchbase, a multi-national integrator, added: “Our partnership with Westcon Group is a fundamental reason our business has experienced exponential growth during the last 18 months. Robust programs like OneVoice have helped differentiate us from our competition; we congratulate Westcon Group on this tremendous distinction.”
