Wick Hill has won the strongly contested ‘Distributor of the Year’ title at the IT Europa European IT and Software Excellence Awards 2016. These are the only pan-European awards that recognise best practices and service excellence in the IT community. Wick Hill won in the supplier section which recognises the distributor who best supported its channel partners to deliver excellence.
Ian Kilpatrick, chairman Wick Hill Group, commented: “Our business model has always been different from that of other distributors. Our primary focus is, and always has been, on striving for excellence, with the expectation that sales and profits will follow that. We have always maintained a deliberately small portfolio to ensure focus on our partners. This award recognises the contribution of all of our team to delivering that excellence and we would also like to thank all of our channel partners. This is a very timely and important award, as we are significantly increasing our presence across EMEA.”
