Global technology provider Arrow Electronics is celebrating two wins following Check Point’s annual gala awards.
The awards, held to recognise the achievements of the UK channel partner community, saw Arrow UK and Ireland crowned Distributor Partner of the Year. In addition, business development manager Simon McMillan was awarded “Check Point Most Valuable Person not in sales or presales”, for his contributions to business development in the non-vendor managed space.
Nick Bannister, vice president sales for Arrow’s enterprise computing solutions business in the UK and Ireland, said, “It’s an honour to receive these awards and for the team to be recognised for their hard work and approach. Arrow is Check Point’s largest distributor in the UK. We look forward to another year of working together, supporting our channel partners and helping them grow their businesses.”
“A very well earned, well deserved win on both fronts from Arrow, achieving significant growth across the distribution-managed partner accounts and supporting some major new customer and emerging technology wins within our 2-star partner base” said Martin Rutterford, head of managed channels, UK & Ireland, Check Point Software Technologies. “The award also recognises the close collaboration and supporting nature we hold dear with our distribution community, recognising the efforts, which help drive our mutual growth and continued success as one of the global leader in cybersecurity.”
“Simon’s award was in recognition for his efforts, experience and expertise in driving the success within our distribution-managed partner community. Their continuous support and partner engagement delivered exceptional growth, which included one of the largest emerging technology and new logo deals within this space,” Rutterford continued.
Check Point’s Managed Service Provider Program is available on ArrowSphere, Arrow’s cloud management platform.
