Westcon-Comstor, the global technology distributor, has awarded Maintel, the cloud and managed services experts, the UK Partner of the year award at its annual virtual partner summit IMAGINE 2022. The award recognises year on year growth, breadth of products sold and the strength of the strategic partnership.
Westcon’s annual virtual partner summit IMAGINE 2022 saw an audience of over a thousand channel partners from across EMEA and contributions from 26 leading vendors. Announcing its future visions, impact and opportunities for the IT channel, Westcon-Comstor presented awards to select partners, including Maintel, for outstanding performance in regional growth and cloud technology adoption.
Westcon and Maintel have been partners for over 20 years, and have since created a strategic alliance built on a deep understanding of the other’s business and commercial strategy, combined with trusted relationships at all levels of the organisation. While 2021 was a challenging year in terms of industry disruption due to economic headwinds, Maintel achieved significant growth with Westcon with several standout wins across its portfolio.
Accepting the award, Ioan MacRae, CEO at Maintel said “We are thoroughly excited and grateful to have been recognised for such a prestigious award by Westcon, one of our long-term key strategic partners. This award acknowledges our commitment and dedication to driving new business opportunities. We look forward to building on this success in the year ahead.”
Antony Byford, Managing Director at Westcon UK & Ireland (pictured right) said: “Maintel has been awarded our FY22 UK Partner of the Year title for a number of reasons but put simply, we wanted to recognise the company’s fantastic 46% growth across our solutions portfolio. That growth was on top of an already substantial business from a partnership stretching back nearly two decades. The Maintel team has shown real leadership in driving every opportunity from its existing business, as well as adopting new technologies and delivering great service to their customers.”
