Westcon Group, a value-added distributor of category-leading unified communications, network infrastructure, data centre, and security solutions with a global network of specialty resellers, today announced its convergence business practice has been named "EMEA Distributor of the Year" by Jabra for the second consecutive year.
Westcon was honoured at Jabra's EMEA Partner Conference in Amsterdam January 30th – February 1, bringing together more than 200 partners. Celebrating the "Power of Partnership," award winners were noted for outstanding revenue growth and alignment to Jabra's strategic objectives.
Westcon’s sales across unified communications have grown dramatically year-over-year, in line with user demand for headsets as the UC accessory of choice. The acceleration is driven by changing working behaviours, such as an increase in remote and flexible working practices.
Joel Hamon, EMEA President Jabra CC&O, said, “Through close alignment and strong geographical coverage within the region, we have been able to build a robust partnership and business plan with the Westcon team. They have an expert understanding of the requirements today’s enterprises face and demonstrate outstanding drive and commitment to growing our mutual business. Westcon also works closely with many of our alliance partners such as Microsoft and Avaya and this has created a solid ecosystem which benefits our partners greatly. We look forward to continued growth in 2013.”
David Grant, Senior Vice President Westcon Europe commented, “It is a true honour to receive this award for the second year and recognizes the efforts of the collective Westcon team to drive our Jabra business. Westcon has developed a number of initiatives to help onboard partners and support the increasing demand for UC-optimised headsets into our growing UC partner base. We anticipate further growth in 2013.”
