Partners in Excellence The Inaugural SevOne Partner Summit
On the eve of Cisco Live in London we invited our valued EMEA partners to attend a day dedicated to them. We couldn’t have achieved the success of 2010 without them, so this was our chance to give them our thanks and plan for the coming 12 months.
We’ve made no secret of the importance of channel partners to our long term strategy and success. We see our partners as an extension of our organisation, which is why we have an extremely stringent selection process to ensure we only work with partners who are the best in their regions. We were delighted to welcome so many of them to the Novotel Hotel in London. They came from all across the world – from Russia to South Africa, and from Italy to the UK.
With so many in attendance, it was the perfect opportunity for our CEO, Mike Phelan, to fill everybody in on exactly why SevOne is so special, and how every person in the room contributes towards our Culture of Awesome. Our CTO, Vess Bakalov outlined the ambitious 2011 development roadmap and there will be many more reasons for customers to love using SevOne.
As proud as we are of all our partners here at SevOne, we think a little healthy competition is never a bad thing. Which is why we took the opportunity to unveil the inaugural ‘SevOne Partner of the Year‘ and ’SevOne Partner Salesperson of the Year’ awards. Each year we will recognise the partner organisation and individual who has made the outstanding contribution to SevOne.
For 2010, we were delighted to award Partner of the Year to Holonomix from the UK and Partner Salesperson of the Year to Josh Ayres (Sales & Marketing Director, Holonomix). Congratulations to both!
But to all our partners, we want to say a huge thank you. We consider all of you to be part of the broader SevOne family and glad we were to be able to present (conveniently compact)
SevOne 2010 Partner Plates – hopefully you’ll be able to find space for them in your offices. We’re looking forward to an even larger and more exciting event next year, and many more successful projects to celebrate. If you’re interested in joining the SevOne family as a partner, please complete our partner application form.
