To celebrate the first anniversary of its Solutions Group launch, Ingram Micro put on an awards ceremony at the flashy Establishment Hotel in Sydney. More than 150 resellers, vendors and staff were present at the event. Commander scooped the award for Solution Reseller of the Year; Solution Deal of the Year went to Daltron. Bekkers picked up Solution of the Year and HP achieved the Solution Vendor of the Year.
Staff awards were also handed out. Solution Vendor Manager of the Year was presented to Peter Pollari for his work with Juniper Networks, and Solution Team Player of the Year went to the Ingram Licensing Administration Team.
"Ingram Micro has made a strong commitment to the success of the Solutions Group. We have very deliberately invested heavily in people with the requisite technical and other skills to be relevant in the infrastructure and software solutions space, and have augmented this with essential support through establishment of our technical lab, configuration centre and Orbital training programs," Ingram's managing director, Guy Freeland, said.
"These awards are testament to the technology that we can now support and provide, with pieces of work showcased tonight which were beyond our capability before establishment of the Solutions Group."
