Lenovo Canada Wins Top Reseller Choice Awards
Lenovo chosen as industry leader for channel programs and channel support

TORONTO, ON – February 13, 2013:  Lenovo Canada today announced it was chosen as Vendor of the Year matched with leading awards at the 6th Annual eChannel News Reseller Choice Awards ceremony. For this particular year, over 500 vendors were nominated in 82 categories. The eChannel Awards are based on the results of 16,000 votes from value added resellers across Canada.

“These are important awards for Lenovo, so we are humbled by the attention and you have my commitment, and the commitment of my teams that we will work hard to live up to these accolades,” said Stefan Bockhop, director channel sales Lenovo Canada. “We’re a channel-first organization, so to have validation from the partners means that we’re doing the right things. We’re bringing the products to market that they want to deliver to their customers.

“Lenovo programs and support are what our partners need to be successful and profitable. It’s a really important validation for us.”

In addition to the coveted Vendor of the Year award, Lenovo also won in the following categories:

Hardware Awards
Best Business Notebook
Best Business Desktop
Best Tablet Computer
Best Workstation

General Awards
Best Profitability
Best Vendor Support
Best Channel Programs

In reference to the 2012 awards, Bockhop stated: “Most of the changes we’ve made to our channel program in the past few years have come as direct feedback from our business partners -- how to make it easier, more effective or quicker to do business with our mutual customers. I hope our partners continue to give us feedback and engage with our teams, both informally but also through events like our yearly Accelerate conference.”

Accelerate 2013, is Lenovo’s annual channel partner forum, taking place April 29 to May 1 at Mandalay Bay, in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event provides channel partners with hands-on access to Lenovo’s newest products, programs, and solutions.
