“As HP’s largest enterprise distributor, Avnet has the proven resources and support partners need to market and win across the entire HP enterprise solutions portfolio, including services, software and hardware,” said Chris Swahn, vice president and general manager, Avnet Technology Solutions, Americas, HP Solutions group. “Avnet significantly invests in enabling our partner community to solve the business challenges of their customers. These investments are paying off for HP and our partners as evidenced by Avnet’s leading in market share, growth and success of our HP partners, and this outstanding recognition from HP.”

The HP Partner in Excellence - Top U.S. Enterprise Distributor Award honors Avnet Technology Solutions for demonstrating the highest year-over-year growth. Avnet was recognized for profitably increasing its solution providers’ businesses in 2012 by enabling them to sell complete data center solutions that include high-value services, software and hardware. In particular, Avnet increased its services offerings to help solution providers capitalize on HP ProLiant servers and HP 3PAR storage opportunities, and was selected as the first distributor to offer its professional services and technical resources through the HP ServiceONE program. Avnet’s continued success is also driven by its methodologies, practices and resources that help solution providers target high-growth, specialized markets, such as healthcare, energy, finance, government, and retail, through Avnet’s SolutionsPath® vertical market practices.

Additionally, Avnet received the HP Partner in Excellence - U.S. Software Growth Award for top balanced revenue and growth across the software portfolio year-over-year. Avnet significantly increased its portfolio of innovative offerings to grow HP’s software business through the acquisition of Pepperweed Consulting in 2012. For example, Avnet now offers a complete set of packaged, fixed-price implementations in the U.S. and Canada—Cloud Evolution Paks (E-Paks). The Cloud E-Paks deploy fully monitored, private clouds with HP CloudSystem or HP Cloud Service Automation products.

“Avnet continually evolves its capabilities to bring HP solutions to market in ways that meet the changing needs of CIOs and IT leaders,” said Tony Vottima, senior vice president and general manager, Avnet Services, Americas. “Building on our 30-year relationship with HP, Avnet is now providing innovative services specifically designed to augment our partners’ ability to drive HP Enterprise Solutions while helping businesses harness the power of cloud computing. Our channel ecosystem is already seeing tremendous success in this area as Avnet’s services position them for long-term growth. We thank HP for their continuing support, our partners for making it possible, and our solutions and delivery teams for their dedication to customer service excellence.”

HP Partner in Excellence Award winners are selected by a panel of HP Channel executives and presented to outstanding HP partners worldwide who have demonstrated exceptional business performance, achieved significant overall growth, have delivered innovative solutions to customers, or have demonstrated IT innovation through philanthropic activities in their local communities.

“Congratulations to this year’s HP Partner in Excellence – Growth Award winners,” said Terry Richardson, vice president and general manager, U.S. Channel Sales, Enterprise Group, HP. “Each of these partners has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to partnership in the spirit of delivering the technology, solutions and value-added services that matter to our mutual customers.”
