AC3 was named HPE’s coveted Service Provider of the Year 2018 for the third time in three years, backed up by a Partner of the Year award win in 2015.
The award was announced last night at HPE’s Partner Principal Conference in Melbourne, presented by Stephen Bovis, VP and MD of South Pacific at HPE, to Simon Xistouris, AC3 CEO. This latest win highlights the long term, successful relationship between the two organisations.
Simon Xistouris said “we are an organisation built on partnerships. We believe in building true partnerships with our customers, and to consistently deliver on that promise, we need the support of our strategic vendors. HPE has been a trusted partner to us through several evolutions of our business. The support that they provide is invaluable for our business, and our ability to be an excellent service provider ourselves. I want to say thank you to everyone at HPE, it’s pretty special for us to be awarded this accolade for the third time. I also want to call out our awesome team – receiving awards like this is only possible because of them and the incredible effort they put in day in, day out.”
In addition to the awards ceremony, the event is an opportunity for HPE’s partners to come together to learn more about the direction of the organisation, network and share success stories. Simon participated in two sessions, acting as a facilitator, as well as sharing his experience as a member of HPE’s Enterprise Partner Advisory Council (EPAC). Simon is one of the few Australian members who represent the local channel partner community at a regional level, providing feedback to and sharing open dialogue directly with HPE executives to continually improve their channel program at a global level.
