Simon Richards, EMEA Distribution Manager of Wyse, presented the awards to Avnet Applied Computing's Thomas Kleinkuhnen, European Business Manager, Networking, and Waltraud Pawendenat, Product Manager, Europe, for Server Based Computing & Security. With the award for the best Distributor in Central Europe, Wyse above all acknowledged Avnet Applied Computing's distribution performance in Germany, which led to many major projects. Avnet Applied Computing received the award for Pan European Distributor in particular for excellent performances in the Netherlands, Germany and Great Britain. Since the two companies signed the distribution agreement with Avnet for the U.K. in November 2002, Wyse has enjoyed further strong growth in the British Isles.

"These awards are an incentive to further expand the market share of the Windows-based terminals in the whole of Europe on behalf of Wyse. The market has a great growth potential, which Avnet will certainly know how to exploit together with its partner Wyse," Pawendenat said.
