Cloud-based email management provider picks up two prestigious UK channel awards for Best Vendor Marketing Manager and Best Vendor Account Manager
London, UK: Mimecast®, the leading supplier of cloud-based email archiving, continuity and security for Microsoft Exchange and Office 365, picked up two prestigious UK channel awards as Gillian Crewdson was named Best Vendor Marketing Manager and Trevor Highley named Best Vendor Account Manager at the 2012 CRN Sales & Marketing Awards.
The two awards recognise the hard work, high standards and incredible success both Gillian and Trevor have achieved for Mimecast, its partners and the UK channel community. Mimecast was also shortlisted for the Best Partner Programme at the awards ceremony held in London.
Nessa Lynchehaun, UK&I Channel Director at Mimecast, commented: “Both Gillian and Trevor have gone above and beyond the call of duty to help service the needs of our partners. These two awards are fantastic and very well deserved recognition for their hard work and dedication to Mimecast, its partners and the channel. We work very hard to make sure we have the right team in place to support the growth of our channel programme while maintaining our ‘SaaS with a face’ approach and these awards are a real testament to that. We’d also like to congratulate our partners Softcat, Trustmarque and ANS who were also recognised for excellence at the awards.”
Dave Simpson, Commercial Director at Softcat, commented: “Gillian is part of an exclusive group of vendor marketing managers who genuinely ‘get’ the channel. Her ability to understand our business and adapt campaigns and collateral to fit with our working style and needs are second to none. Her enthusiasm and passion she displays in her work are inspirational. She is, and has always been, a significant contributor to the strong relationship that exists between Mimecast and Softcat.”
Philippa Witheat, Head of Marketing at Claritas Solutions Ltd, added: “I have worked with Mimecast and their marketing team for over three years now and they are without doubt a highly motivated and enthusiastic team of individuals. A major factor in the overall success has to be down to the direct, personal and overwhelming support we receive from Gillian Crewdson and the team at Mimecast, whom without hesitation I would recommend time and time again.”
On Trevor’s award, Matt Ives, Office Manager at Softcat, said: “Trevor has been instrumental to the Softcat-Mimecast success story. I am especially thankful for his vast experience and co-operation whilst establishing Softcat’s first regional office and the ongoing advice and support he and his team provide.
“Trevor isn’t just a great manager, but a very accomplished sales man, a real entrepreneur, and a true professional who approaches every job in the same way he approaches life – with immense energy, passion and attention to detail. He inspires confidence and the dedication and personality he brings to the party are practically immeasurable. He is one of the finest communicators I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with, has clear goals and motivates those around him. His ‘can-do’ attitude is an inspiration and his ability to get results is nothing short of a phenomenon.”
