In the dozen years that Pure Storage® has been in business, we've always relied on a strong, global ecosystem of partners who offer, install, service, and support our products and solutions. Each year, this network of allies expands and grows to meet the needs of customers in all industries around the world.
For the first time in several years, I was able to thank these partners in person at the Americas Partner Forum hosted in Los Angeles, CA, on June 7, 2022. It was great to be back "live" with these incredible partners and to celebrate their success with Pure.
Focus on Doing What It Takes
I don't think anyone will argue that the past few years have been unique and challenging for customers everywhere. From supply chain issues and difficulties finding qualified candidates to fill critical roles, to a slowdown in growth in general, Pure's partners have helped to fill gaps and deliver storage and data management solutions that keep businesses open and successful. It's only appropriate we take time to recognize the focus, dedication, and perseverance these teams displayed and to thank them for all they did in 2021.
From "Fastest Growth" and "Most New" to "SLED" and "Customer Advocate" winners, we have partners who make business look easy. What's not easy is trying to select just one partner to win in each category! Throughout my tenure here, it's been a pleasure to work alongside so many of Pure's partners. Now, as VP of Americas Partner Sales, it's an honor and privilege to lead the organization as we continue to expand these relationships so customers continue to thrive.
