The award was presented to Ingram Micro by Acer Australia's National Sales Manager for Retail, Channel and Distribution, Amir Sinanovic.

"This award recognises Ingram Micro's role in securing significant growth across the independent retail, commercial and SMB market segments in the last year," Sinanovic said.

"This success is attributed to the very close relationship between Acer and Ingram Micro at all levels and the hard work and dedication of the teams involved." It is the first time Ingram Micro has won the award, according to Julian Phua, Senior Director, Volume Technology Group at Ingram Micro.

"The team has worked really hard, and this shows in the results that they've seen over the past twelve months," Phua says. "We're delighted to receive this award, and we would like to thank both Acer and our resellers who have helped us this year. We look forward to continuing this success next year."
