Executive Perspectives
Sean Collins, Director of EMEA Channels, Extreme Networks
"We are thrilled to take our cloud-driven networking message and 'The Extreme Difference' approach directly to our partners in EMEA this year. It has been a fantastic experience spending the time with our channel partner community, exploring the themes of community and collaboration, and nurturing and strengthening our relationships. Further, we are very proud to recognise excellence in overall sales, innovation, services, and also solution-specific wins among our partners with The EMEA Partner Awards. We had a number of truly worthy participants in every category, but this year's winners proved to be a cut above the rest in the way that they delivered against our shared objectives. We're incredibly fortunate to work with so many great partners in EMEA and I am looking forward to seeing what next year holds for us all."
