Riverbed: ‘Thank You, Partners, For Our Great 2013’
This week sees application performance infrastructure vendor Riverbed hosting hundreds of partner firms at its annual sales kick-off event – SKO 2014.
And when we say ‘hundreds,’ we do mean just that – as 300 channel partners are over in San Francisco for the event.
There, they are hearing one message loud and clear, it seems: a big vote of thanks about their hard work.
“We share a common goal of enabling our customers to benefit from location-independent computing,” the company’s SVP of worldwide channels and strategic account programs, Keith Hoskison, told the assembled channel partners.
Hoskison later presided over a gala prize-giving ceremony where Riverbed partners celebrated specific firms’ performance.
Companies receiving recognition include Partner of The Year in EMEA (Teneo Ltd) as well as the firm’s EMEA Distribution Partner of 2013, European value-added distributor Zycko.
Riverbed’s Bob Gilbert provided more detail about the event in their blog on the WAN optimisation specialist’s website.
According to Gilbert, partners were told at the gala reception that: “We are thrilled to recognise and honour these top-performing partners who excelled at meeting the needs of our joint customers.”
Riverbed Technology delivers the most complete platform for location-independent computing in the market.
