Leading publication for the US IT channel recognizes ScanSource as a top distributor for 2016

Greenville-based ScanSource, Inc., a leading global provider of technology products and solutions, was recently named Distributor of the Year by Channelnomics.com, a leading provider of US IT channel news and analysis, in the inaugural Channelnomics Innovation Awards (CIAs). The recognition was presented to ScanSource by Channelnomics US editor Jessica Meek and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author Carl Bernstein at a winners’ ceremony in New York City.

The CIAs, which covered categories for solution providers, distributors and vendors, were designed to ensure that channel players across North America who bring innovation, forward thinking and excitement to the IT channel are recognized. The awards series is completely independent and based solely on innovation and achievement in the channel over the past year.

“ScanSource is honored to be the recipient of the first-ever Channelnomics Distributor of the Year award,” said Christy Thompson, vice president of worldwide marketing at ScanSource. “It’s a true testament to the dedication of our employees – the focus we all put on the success of the business, and more importantly, the shared success of our customers. We couldn’t be more excited to receive an accolade of this significance in such a competitive market.”

Several entry categories were available in the CIAs, and the Distributor of the Year recognition was one of only three reader-voted categories.

“We are thrilled to honor 2016’s channel innovators in our inaugural year for the Channelnomics Innovation Awards,” said Jessica Meek, U.S. editor of Channelnomics. The overwhelming number of submissions for the CIAs, plus the outstanding quality of entrants, showed us just how important these awards are to the channel, and we are delighted to be able to recognize the winners on behalf of the channel.”
