“We are thrilled to have been recognized by Extreme Networks as its top performing distributor in North America,” said Vince Piccolomini, vice president of business development. “Our relationship with Extreme, which started in 2008, has continued to grow and strengthen even as Extreme has grown both organically as well as through its most recent acquisitions. We look forward to continuing to serve Extreme’s partners as we finish 2017 and move into 2018, including serving partners who now are part of the Extreme family through the company’s acquisitions of Zebra Technologies, Avaya’s networking business and most recently Brocade Communications Systems, Inc.”

The team operates with a “Customer First’ attitude and treat not only their customers, but our team as a customer in every engagement.”
