Jabra names top partners in Australia & New Zealand

08 May 2018

Jabra has named its top partners across Australia and New Zealand at the company’s APAC One Partner conference in Hanoi, Vietnam.

The awards ceremony named top performers within Jabra’s partner ecosystem across both enterprise and consumer markets.

They recognised channel partners who have delivered exceptional value for customers, demonstrated expertise in provisioning Jabra solutions, and delivered outstanding sales results across 2017.

Polaris Communications was named the 2017 Top Enterprise Partner for ANZ in recognition of their significant growth over the last two years.

Throughout 2017, Polaris delivered a number of significant wins and exceptional sales growth, to be named the Top Enterprise Partner and taking the top spot as Jabra’s biggest partner in Australia, with plans underway to expand into New Zealand.

Ingram Micro Australia was awarded the 2017 Top Consumer Partner for A/NZ for its pivotal role in supporting key retail partners and driving channel relationships.

With a core focus on the Elite Sport and the Sport Audio range, Ingram Micro excelled in driving a collaborative channel strategy to deliver significant value to retail partners.

“2017 proved to be another successful year, with over 35% year on year growth in the A/NZ region,” says Jabra A/NZ managing director David Piggott.

“Our most valued partners are the driving force behind this achievement, and we are thrilled to award them for their significant contribution, and acknowledge the support and commitment between our partners and the Jabra team.”

Dimension Data was also recognised as the 2017 Top Enterprise Partner for APAC.

As an enterprise partner of choice, Dimension Data’s alignment across the region throughout 2017 and combined sales team commitment delivered outstanding year-on-year growth.

The Jabra One Partner Conference was held in recognition of the past year’s success of Jabra partners across the APAC region, and to share Jabra’s vision, strategy, and support to the channel for 2018 and beyond.

The event also gave Jabra staff and partners the opportunity to give back to the Vietnamese community, in connection with the Blue Dragon Children's Foundation.

The Blue Dragon Foundation works with children and families in crisis, and Jabra staff and partners were tasked with assembling bicycles, which were then donated to be given to the children who needed them most.
