EMEA Partner Summit at Tower of London Energizes SevOne Partners
SevOne held its second annual EMEA Partner Summit last week at the Tower of London, preceding our activities at Cisco Live London. Over 30 partners attended from a dozen regions across Europe and the Middle East, including representation from Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and Turkey. They joined the SevOne executive team from the USA and the EMEA sales teams for a full day of interactive presentations and a night of entertainment.
Mike Phelan, our CEO, kicked off the Summit with the vision and strategy that has enabled SevOne to become the fastest and most scalable network performance management solution— bar none. He reiterated how In 2011, our EMEA region grew 100% year over year and is contributing profitably to our company. We have earned the business of leading global brands and how along with our Partners, we will dominate the EMEA region in 2012! Key presentations during the day included training for the launch of SevOne version 5, the new SevOne Partner Certification program, as well as expanded partner marketing and support programs. Energizing and supporting our partners in EMEA and APAC is key to our worldwide growth and success.
Following the all day session, we toured the Tower of London grounds, taking in the spectacular white tower and Medieval Palace but unfortunately the Crown Jewells room had closed early. No worries though since we simply started our night time festivities a bit earlier at The Living Room at the St. Katharine Docks. During dinner, Telonic GmbH was acknowledged as SevOne's EMEA Partner of the Year for 2011, and Helmut Dreymuller won the EMEA Partner Sales Person of the Year award.
It was exciting to see so many of our partners make the trip to London for the Summit this year. Some of our partners even joined us at Cisco Live after the Summit later in the week.
Last year, SevOne was recognized as a CRN Emerging Vendor for 2011 for the success of our Partner Program. This is an exciting time for SevOne with the release of v5. Our valued partners will continue to play a major role in our success.
