“Effective industry partnerships are critical to providing high quality
solutions and services to our more than 250,000 customers. This year’s
award recipients consistently went above and beyond, enabling us to
better understand and meet the needs of our business, government,
education and healthcare customers,” said Matt Troka, CDW senior vice
president of product and partner management. “We congratulate Avnet for
achieving CDW’s Partner of the Year award, and we thank them for their
outstanding support of CDW initiatives as well as their commitment to
