Data Storage Specialist Continues to Deliver Industry Excellence in 2013.

Frank Salmon Receives CMS Distributopn's ‘Storage Distributor of the Year' Award for Second Consecutive Year

We have not lost sight of our guiding philosophy of exceeding expectations.

CMS Distribution, the UK and Ireland based Value-Added Distributor of data storage products and solutions, was recognised as ‘Storage Distributor of the Year' for a second running in what was for many the best Storage Awards since the event’s launch ten years ago.

More than 430 of the industry’s top leaders and talent gathered for the Storage Awards 2013 (the Storries X) in the prestigious Grand Connaught Rooms, Covent Garden, to acknowledge outstanding products, services and people in the Channel today. This year’s elite were selected by 11,500 readers of Storage Magazine and over 50,000 votes - 25 per cent up on 2012- were cast in total.

CMS Distribution’s founder and group managing director Frank Salmon – who was also awarded ‘ICT Person of the Year’ in May - received CMS' ‘Storage Distributor of the Year' award on the night; commenting afterwards, he said “Winning this award for the second time in a row is an incredible achievement in itself but it is especially significant this year, as it shows despite the challenges faced by the CMS team around the integration and rebranding, we have triumphed and we have not lost sight of our guiding philosophy of exceeding expectations. We continue to provide a value-added distribution service to our resellers in the UK and Ireland. Once again, we'd like to thank all those resellers and vendors who voted for us."

As well as celebrating the achievements in the UK Storage arena, the Storage Awards also serves as one of the largest networking events in the industry, and on the night CMS celebrated wins with a number of its vendor partners, including CA Technologies, CommVault, Exagrid, Quantum, Symantec and Spectra Logic who all also picked up awards.

This year marks 25 years since the Storage Specialist emerged on the competitive IT market landscape. Since then it has grown to become the UK and Ireland’s largest independent distributor of IT data storage products and solutions. The company remains focused on bringing the right opportunities to the UK and Ireland reseller community and maintaining an organic growth rate of 20 per cent per annum; with this in mind CMS has launched a number of new enterprise and consumer brands so far this year.
