Avnet selected as IBM Most Outstanding Distributor for APAC

Global IT solutions distributor Avnet Technology Solutions has been named the winner of an IBM Choice Award for most outstanding distributor in the APAC region.

Announced last week at IBM’s PartnerWorld Leadership Conference in Las Vegas, the Choice Awards recognises a select number of IBM partners who have demonstrated business excellence in delivering IBM-based solutions resulting in “exceptional client experience and business growth”.

William Chu, president, Avnet Technology Solutions, APAC, says, “We are honoured to receive this prestigious IBM award as this is yet another testament to our solid relationship with IBM, the skill and dedication of our team, and our strong commitment to accelerating IBM’s success in the Asia Pacific region.” 

He says, “Avnet and IBM have been collaborating globally for nearly 30 years, and together, we evolved to bring to the marketplace relevant systems, software, and services including education and training."

The Choice Awards, selected by IBM leadership in each geography, are given to business partners across a range of categories, recognising their working relationships with clients and demonstrated skills in selling IBM solutions.

“Today, more than ever, we are tightly aligned with IBM’s growth strategies and look forward to continued success in 2015,” Chu says.

Marc Dupaquier, general manager, IBM Global Business Partners, says, “With our joint focus on customer satisfaction, IBM and Avnet will continue to help our clients achieve higher value by delivering advanced technology solutions.”
