Westcon-Comstor awarded top Ruckus Distributor in Africa for fourth time

Westcon-Comstor Sub-Saharan Africa, the value-added technology distributor, is pleased to announce that the company has for the fourth year running been awarded as the African Distributor of the Year (FY17) from its vendor partner Ruckus Networks, an ARRIS company.

The award was received by a contingent of Westcon-Comstor at the company’s annual Ruckus Big Dogs 2018 EMEA partner event, which this year was hosted in Madrid Spain. The event is aimed at providing partners a platform to network, engage and garner insights into a future roadmap for the vendor. It is topped off with a prestigious partner awards event – where the best of the best are lauded for their efforts in the last financial year.

“To have won the award as Africa distributor of the year for the fourth year running is not only a wonderful achievement, but it stands as a testament to the value our team places on the relevance of Ruckus as a vendor to our customers,” states Rentia Booysen, business unit manager: Unified Communications and Collaboration at Westcon-Comstor Sub-Saharan Africa.

“I am exceptionally proud of my Ruckus team and the effort they place on taking the Ruckus wired and wireless message to market – while at the same time continually developing the local channel,” she adds.

The award is given to the distributor that has managed to maintain year-on-year growth, has exceeded their targets with exceptional revenue growth, who are able to support the technologies beyond just the sale of product, and who have a core focus on partner enablement.

“Ruckus continues to gain traction throughout the continent and we are constantly assisting customers with helping them design better wired and wireless networks with Ruckus Networks. We are very excited to see where we can now take the vendor with the recent addition of its switching line. This is such a proud moment for our whole team and one we are exceptionally proud of,” states Andries Janse van Rensburg, Channel Manager Ruckus at Westcon-Comstor Sub-Saharan Africa.
