Westcon Group scoops vendor awards
Congratulations to convergence and networking distributor Westcon and its Cisco unit, Comstor, which have both picked up some vendor awards this week.
Westcon's Willem de Haan was on hand at the 2010 Juniper networks J-Partner Summit in Barcelona to pick up the vendor's award for EMEA Distributor of the Year for its work with the vendor in the UK, France, Italy and Benelux.
Juniper VP of EMEA channel sales David Small praised the distie's "focus and investment" noting "Westcon [grew] their business quarter-on-quarter across all product groups, general business and named account business during 2009."
Comstor, meanwhile, will be needing to invest in a new display cabinet after walking away with no fewer than seven Cisco awards*, three in Spain, two in Germany and two in the UK; Geography Winner and Distributor Partner of the Year.
Comstor Worldwide president Jon Pritchard said the awards validated the "commitment we have to our partners in the delivery of a true value add supply chain business."
* Before security stopped them at the door, that is.
