FHCisco Partner Summit 2015 is off to a great start this week in Montreal, Canada, with 2,200 global partners and 70 press and analysts in attendance. The theme for this year’s event is “Be Bold,” which Bruce Klein, SVP, Worldwide Partner Organization, Cisco, expanded upon during his opening speech last evening. “Be bold about business – but be bold in life,” he said. “Be bold as leaders. What do we do, we do for people in our communities.”

Cisco CEO John Chambers followed with a message around the digital transformation powered by the IoE (Internet of Everything). “Every single city, country, company is transforming digitally,” he said. Companies will need to make this transformation or they won’t survive, he warned, summarizing his message with, “Disrupt or be disrupted.”

Rounding out last night’s events, Ingram Micro was the recipient of several special honors during a global awards reception, including:

  1. US Distributor of the Year Award
  2. Enterprise Networks Distribution Award and
  3. Global Distributor of the Year Award (Ingram Micro India Pvt. Ltd)

"We're pleased to once again be recognized by Cisco as one of its industry-leading distribution partners,” said Paul Bay, Executive VP and President, Ingram Micro North America. “It is a testimony to Ingram Micro's excellence in business execution and proven ability to innovate, enable and accelerate success for our mutual Cisco channel partners through our in-depth Cisco expertise, dedicated resources and proven track record for business enablement and cloud services.”
