Brightpoint has been appointed as the sole distributor by HTC with the announcement coming as a result of Brightpoint’s recent acquisition of the wireless distribution business of Hugh Symons Telecom. This agreement is part of a wider-reaching global master agreement that HTC and Brightpoint entered into in October of 2007.
Steen Pedersen, President of Brightpoint Europe commented: “We are proud to have been chosen by HTC as the exclusive distributor for its products across the UK and Ireland. We believe that the strong working relationship HTC has with the Hugh Symons team combined with the knowledge and competencies from Brightpoint will be a powerful platform for helping HTC to continue the development of its business within the Channel.”
Paul Ghent, HTC’s Executive Director for UK and Ireland, said. “We are delighted to be working with Brightpoint, and at the same time, retaining the relationship we have with the Hugh Symons Telecom team in their new and strengthened position in the UK and Ireland. Our channel customers play a major role in our market success, and we are committed to building strong relationships with them through the new Channel Partner Programme.”
