Hewlett Packard Enterprise has celebrated its top-performing partners in New Zealand across three locations from December through to late January.
HPE's partner awards celebrate the outstanding resilience displayed by distribution partners and resellers in navigating the uncertainties of the past year.
"Through unwavering determination and adaptability, these partners have not only weathered the literal storms and floods but also inflationary pressures, cost of living challenges, and three prime ministers," said Craig Murphy, HPE New Zealand's general manager of channels.
They had emerged stronger, demonstrating the power of collaboration and a shared commitment to success, he said.
"We owe a significant part of our success to the vibrant community that surrounds us," Murphy said. "The enthusiasm, feedback, and support inspire us to push boundaries and make a positive impact."
