The Rising Star Awards recognize technology companies with exceptional sales growth through U.S. distributors over the past year. Global Technology Distribution Council (GTDC) members are the world’s leading technology distributors, driving more than $130 billion in annual product sales worldwide.
This year’s awards were presented in Burlingame, Calif., during the annual dinner event kicking off the 2016 GTDC Summit U.S. conference at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport. This year, 16 GTDC Rising Star winners were selected in the eight categories. Two winners were honored from each of these eight categories based on the highest total market share and year-over-year growth rates within The NPD Group’s Distributor Track. Veeam was named a Sector Market Share Champion in the Network Software category.
