Commenting on his new role, Ceraolo stated: “We have already seen strong growth in both our Lenovo and Dell business and with the additional resources and investment now being made, and the extensive reach we have in the reseller channel, I’m very confident that we can build on that foundation and open up many new and exciting opportunities for our partners.”
Azlan has recently increased the size of its dedicated server and storage team and is looking to drive new opportunities across its customer base. It offers lead-generation and business development support and providing access to vendor partner programmes.
