Gulf Business Machines (GBM) has been announced as the “Partner of the Year in Europe, Middle East, and Africa” at the annual F5 Agility 2017 conference in Barcelona, Spain.

The award seeks to recognise a partner of F5 Networks that has demonstrated “exemplary performance in business growth, customer focus, and technical excellence.”

Commenting on the award, Michael Schoenrock, director, channel sales EMEA, F5 Networks, said “The past year has been full of success across EMEA and our partners been at the heart of it all.

“Through agility and innovation, GBM has brought F5’s key solutions to life to secure new projects and build receptivity for our evolving portfolio, particularly as we intensify our focus on security and multi-cloud deployments. This award is well deserved, and I would like to congratulate the team for continually redefining what it means to make apps go faster, smarter, and safer.”

GBM has been previously recognised by F5. Most recently, GBM was named the Middle East Partner of the year and Security Partner of the year at the F5 Middle East Forum in Dubai.

Hani Nofal, vice president of intelligent network solutions, security and mobility at GBM, commented: “We are beyond honoured to have received an accolade of this scale from F5, particularly considering the aggressive competition we faced from large European systems integrators. Awards such as these further cement GBM’s commitment to partnering with internationally renowned technology brands with the goal of bringing the most cutting edge digital solutions to the GCC market.”
