The Rising Star Awards recognise technology companies with exceptional sales growth through European distributors over the past year. This year’s awards were presented during an evening dinner event at the 2016 GTDC Summit EMEA conference at the Grand Hotel Huis ter Duin.
Veeam was among only 15 overall winners chosen from hundreds of manufacturers and publishers who rely on distributors to meet the product and service requirements of technology solution providers in the EMEA region. Gold, Silver and Bronze Rising Star Award winners were selected in four revenue categories and overall software business, respectively, with each category winner based on sales growth over the past year, as tracked by the CONTEXT SalesWatch Distribution Panel.
“We’ve enjoyed great success in the ‘Rising Star’ award in the past – it’s an honour for us – and to win it again is testament to Veeam’s hard work, impressive growth and foresight” said Gilles Pommier, VP Channel & Cloud EMEA of Veeam Software. “Our business depends on the channel and the excellent work of our partner community. Like Veeam, they have acknowledged the need for the Always-On Enterprise™, and recognise that products such as Veeam Availability Suite™ v9 can help their customers make this a reality.”
