United Kingdom: broadliner Ingram Micro has launched its VentureTech Network (VTN) partner community in the country. The United Kingdom is the first country in Europe to be covered by VTN, established by Ingram Micro 15 years ago in the United States. VTN is an exclusive network of independent resellers who share ideas, resources, and technologies in a non-competitive environment. VTN makes it possible for members to easily partner with one another and to turn a local or regional business into a nationwide or multiregional operation. The network offers access to technology best practices, best-in-class solutions, and industry-leading service deployment through Ingram Micro partners. As part of the community, VTN members have the opportunity to network with and learn from other successful resellers, share best practices, leverage capabilities, and have greater visibility of vendors and market evolution. Mark Williams, Client Services Director of Wavex, will serve as VTN UK's first council President. To date, almost 20 resellers have already joined the new network.
