Westcon wins Avaya distributor gong

by Stuart Wilson, Tuesday 23 September 2008

Westcon group has won an Avaya EMEA distributor of the year award for the fifth year in a row. The specialty distributor picked up the prize from Avaya in recognition of its role in developing international business and building up the channel to market for Avaya solutions through its ConvergencePoint programme.

Barry Shakespeare, executive VP of Westcon Group Europe, accepted the award during the recent Avaya EMEA conference in Madrid. This is the fifth consecutive year that Avaya, a global leader in business communications applications, systems and services, has presented an EMEA award to Westcon Group.

For the last four consecutive years, the Avaya EMEA distributor of the year award was presented to Westcon Group and UK-based Crane Telecommunications, which was acquired by Westcon Group in May 2007.

“This achievement is a reflection of the dedication and focus from our entire European team,” commented David Grant, VP of Westcon Convergence for the UK and Northern Europe.

“Westcon has continued to deliver innovative, customer-focused solutions and has a great breadth of skills and expertise across the region. This is complemented by our ConvergencePoint programme which supports our customers in both established and emerging markets. We are proud to receive this award and look forward to another exciting year of growth with Avaya,” he added.

Jeremy Butt, VP worldwide channels at Avaya, said: “Westcon Group has made significant investments across EMEA to enable business partners to successfully sell Avaya solutions.”

“Westcon is now present with Avaya in seven major countries in EMEA and have 64 dedicated Avaya specialists; that is impressive. Westcon has clearly demonstrated its ability to drive business development internationally,” he added.
