EMC appoints new GM for Australia and New Zealand

Former GM appointed leader of EMC’s Canberra branch

Ingram Micro has taken home EMC’s Distributor of the Year award at the the 2013 Business Partner Awards, held at Sydney’s Quay Restaurant.

The awards ceremony recognised the storage vendor’s highest-performing partners from the past year.

Chris Trevitt, newly appointed general manager of business partner sales, A/NZ, hosted the ceremony along Alister Dias, vice president and managing director, EMC Australia and New Zealand.

Trevitt was recently promoted from his role as regional manager, South Australia and Western Australia for EMC, and will focus on driving EMC’s partner activities in 2014 and beyond.

Trevitt takes over the role of directing EMC’s Business Partner Program activities in A/NZ from Brett Harris who was also in attendance at the awards ceremony.

Harris has recently been appointed leader of EMC’s ACT branch in Canberra. In his new position, he will be responsible for EMC’s Federal Government strategy.

In other awards, Dimension Data took the Signature Partner Australian award; Saxxon IT won Premier Partner Australia and Datacom won Premier Partner NZ.

In the Specialist Partner of the Year categories, Infront won for Unified Storage and Backup and Recovery, while Amcom won for Isilon.

EMC senior vice president, global channel sales, Gregg Ambulos, said he was impressed with the calibre of EMC partners in ANZ.

“It is really exciting to see the innovative projects and solutions our partners in A/NZ are working on with their customers,” he said.

“Australia and New Zealand is paving the way for the rest of world in terms of virtualisation, which is opening up exciting opportunities for our partners and customers moving towards the software-defined datacentre.”

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
