Axon and Gen-i win at Symantec Partner Awards

21 Oct 09

Held last night in Auckland, the recipients of the two 2009 Symantec Partner Awards were Axon and Gen-i, chosen based on a set of criteria including overall performance in revenue, deal registration, technical and marketing investments, customer service and certification. 


Axon Computer Systems won the New Zealand Enterprise Partner of the Year and Axon CEO Scott Green said: “We are delighted to be recognised as Symantec’s New Zealand Enterprise Partner for 2009. This award demonstrated the continued focus and commitment from both Symantec and Axon to better serve the storage, security and systems management needs of our joint customers in New Zealand.” 


Gen-i won the New Zealand Specialist Partner of the Year 2009 and Gen-i CIO Peter Finch said: “We are very proud to have received the Symantec New Zealand Specialist Partner of the Year Award. Our relationship with Symantec continues to strengthen and we look forward to the continued success of this partnership in 2010.” 


Craig Scroggie, Symantec Vice President and Managing Director, Pacific Region, gave a speech and thanked all of Symantec’s partners for their contributions, especially during a time when people are adjusting to the ‘new normal’ and customers are focused on better utilisation of existing hardware. 


Speaking to the partners, Scroggie said, “I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your support, we couldn’t have experienced the success that we’ve had in our business without the support of all of you.”
