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.”
