Dell Technologies has handed out nine awards to its top-performing Australian and New Zealand partners for 2021.
The virtual event was held during the A/NZ Dell Technologies Forum 2021, held on 15 September during the vendor’s dedicated partner track.
The awards were presented by Shant Soghomonian, senior director and general manager of channel sales, A/NZ, and Paulo da Silva, director of global alliances for Asia Pacific, Japan and Greater China.
"If there is anything the past 18 months have shown us, it is that we can’t predict the future," said Soghomonian. "However, during this time we have all understood the true value of relying on each other and the true value of partnership.
"I’d like to thank all Dell Technologies partners across Australia and New Zealand, for making a real difference in our customers’ lives this past year. Congratulations to all of our winners and I look forward to working with every one of our partners in the year ahead.”
