Westcon Group wins Jabra award
Westcon says it has developed a number of initiatives to help on board partners and support the increasing demand for UC-optimised headsets.

Westcon Group, a value-added distributor of unified communications, network infrastructure, data centre and security solutions, has announced that its convergence business practice has been named "EMEA Distributor of the Year" by Jabra for the second consecutive year.

Westcon was honoured at the recent Jabra EMEA Partner Conference held in the Netherlands, that brought together more than 200 partners across the region.

Joel Hamon, EMEA president Jabra CC&O, said: "Through close alignment and strong geographical coverage within the region, we have been able to build a robust partnership and business plan with the Westcon team. They have an expert understanding of the requirements today's enterprises face and demonstrate outstanding drive and commitment to growing our mutual business. Westcon also works closely with many of our alliance partners such as Microsoft and Avaya and this has created a solid ecosystem which benefits our partners greatly. We look forward to continued growth in 2013."

David Grant, senior vice president at Westcon Europe commented: "It is a true honour to receive this award for the second year as it recognises the efforts of the collective Westcon team to drive our Jabra business. Westcon has developed a number of initiatives to help onboard partners and support the increasing demand for UC-optimised headsets into our growing UC partner base. We anticipate further growth in 2013."
