Ingram Micro Inc. today announced it has been named Distributor of the Year for the fourth consecutive year by Samsung Electronics America Enterprise Business Division.
The annual award, presented last month to Ingram Micro at the InfoComm 2010 Marketplace in Las Vegas, honored the Ingram Micro Digital Signage Division for its specialized expertise and outstanding performance in successfully marketing, selling and supporting Samsung's award-winning large format displays within the U.S. IT channel.
Richard Hutton, senior marketing manager for Samsung, credits the Ingram Micro Digital Signage Division with generating increased awareness, demand and channel sales for Samsung's large format displays.
"Winning Samsung's Distributor of the Year award four years in a row demonstrates the ability of the Ingram Micro Digital Signage Division to execute against our go-to market channel strategy and build strong relationships with solution providers that drive loyalty and increase sales," Hutton said. "Over a twelve month period, Ingram Micro generated the highest sales and enabled our channel partners to grow their digital signage business during a very challenging economic climate. We're thrilled to recognize Ingram Micro with this accolade and commend them for their ongoing partnership and dedication to Samsung's success."
As a full-service distributor dedicated to the digital signage market, the Ingram Micro Digital Signage Division continues to grow faster than the general market and has earned a reputation for helping channel partners and IT vendors build stronger, more robust businesses around digital signage, according to the company release. ã€€
