Westcon Group, already Comms Business Award Distributor of the Year received Juniper Networks’ ‘EMEA Distributor of the Year’ award and QuesCom’s ‘Distribution Partner of the Year’ award for 2007.
Juniper Networks’ award was presented to Westcon’s NOXS security practice at a gala dinner during the vendor’s EMEA Partner Conference in Alicante, Spain, on 15th May, an event that attracted more than 300 active partners from around the region. Meanwhile, QuesCom’s award was presented during its Distributor Summit early last month in Nice, France.
Barry Shakespeare, Executive Vice President of Westcon Group Europe, commented: “These awards are the result of hard work by our entire European organization, including our new NOXS employees. Over the last year, we have dramatically increased our competitiveness in our chosen technology areas–being recognized by Juniper Networks and QuesCom validates the overall positive effect our efforts have had on customers.”
Philippe Oros, CEO of QuesCom, added: “Over the past year, Westcon Group has excelled in serving small and medium-scale enterprises — a critical customer base for QuesCom. We are especially impressed with Westcon Group’s strong focus on reseller development, one of the reasons they represent the ideal partner for us.” QuesCom is part of Westcon Group’s solutions programs, OneVoice, VoicePoint and MobilityPoint.
“Juniper Networks recognizes partners who achieve customer-centric qualitative, all-round success, rather than just focusing upon revenue delivery,” said David Small, vice president of channels, EMEA for Juniper Networks. “NOXS Europe has consistently achieved this, and over the past year has also developed its geographical reach for Juniper Networks. We are pleased to be able to acknowledge its value to us as a distributor accordingly.”
