Westcon EMEA wins Global Distributor of the Year award


CRAWLEY, UK – 26.10.18: Extreme Networks has recognised Westcon EMEA with its prestigious Global Distributor of the Year award.  Presented to Rene Klein, SVP Westcon Europe, at Extreme’s global partner conference in Prague, the award is in recognition of Westcon’s achievement of delivering against every objective for business and partner development in the region.  Westcon’s growth outstripped all competitors across the globe and resulted from its major investments in people, services and partner initiatives. 


Rene Klein stated: “We have a very long-standing and deep relationship with Extreme Networks.  We are delighted to see the results of our investments in our solutions teams and support services recognised in this way. We became the only distributor to be an Extreme Authorised Training Centre across EMEA to help develop the partner community, we invested significantly in our renewals and refresh services and delivered impactful partner marketing strategies. It all means customers benefit swiftly from Extreme’s innovative and expanded technology solutions, and partners make a highly profitable contribution to customer retention, growth and strengthened relationships. Our end-to-end technology and service capability is pivotal and made a very positive impact - our success with the Mobiliser initiative for new partners being one example. We now look forward to beating our own achievements in the coming year and retaining this award.”
