HP Middle East’s recognises top partner performance at eighth annual Channel Awards
Regional channel partners gather to celebrate the prestigious awards ceremony
HP Middle East today announced the winners of its annual HP Channel Award 2008 held last week at the InterContinental Hotel, in Festival City during GITEX Technology Week 2008.
The awards, attended by over 400 partners from across the region, including key retailers and customers, are designed to celebrate HP’s relationship with its channel partners across the Middle East, as well as recognising and rewarding partners for their outstanding achievements over the past twelve months.
Bernhard Isemann, SPO Manager, HP Middle East, said “HP has an excellent partner network across the Middle East of which we are extremely proud of. The past twelve months has proved extremely successful for HP and we take the annual Channel Awards to thank our partners for their loyalty, dedication and investment within HP”
HP recently introduced two models for its Preferred Partner Programme: Preferred Partner and Gold Preferred Partner. Preferred Partners are typically resellers that sell based on volume, usually addressing volume need but nonetheless strategic market segments, that do not specialise themselves in specific areas. The Gold Preferred Partners are focused on solutions and operations with a requirement for high skill investments.
Attending the event was Todd Bradley, Executive Vice President, HP PSG Worldwide;
Eric Cador, Senior Vice President HP PSG EMEA; Susanne Heis, Vice President HP IPG MEMA and Jos Brenkel, Vice President HP PSG MEMA.
The achievement awards were presented by HP Middle East executives: John Hoonhout, Managing Director and General Manager for Technology Solutions Group (TSG); Anil Kumar, General Manager for Personal Systems Group (PSG); Amr Hassan, General Manager for Imaging and Printing Group (IPG) and Bernhard Isemann, SPO Manager, HP Middle East who hosted the evening.
