Seven distribution bosses reveal the rival they most respect

clock • 2 min read

Often fighting over the same turf, it's fair to say distributors don't always get on. But CRN sister publication Channel Partner Insight tracked down seven distie bosses who weren't above expressing a grudging respect for a competitor.

CRN's pan-global sister publication Channel Partner Insight tracked down seven distribution bosses from the UK, Europe and US and asked them which of their competitors they respected the most and why. Here is a flavour of the article, which can be read in full here.

Nominator: Hayley Roberts, CEO, Distology

Nominee: Tech Data

Although they are not a direct competitor of mine, I think that TechData are an interesting company who seem to consistently do well given their size. With such a diverse tech portfolio, not only do they keep the majority of their vendors happy, their sales people need to be able to sell and support literally millions of different product lines and maintain the same level of standard and support. The logistics of delivery must be immense, so I take my hat off to them
