Kaspersky Lab announces winner of Ferrari corporate hospitality event
Complete IT Systems has won Kaspersky Lab’s partner incentive programme, the High Performance Club’s top prize of a co-branded Ferrari hospitality event at the Silverstone Challenge Series. The event, which took place on Sunday 16th September, was an opportunity for the IT solutions provider to host its major customers for a day of networking, entertainment and enjoying watching the Complete IT Systems branded Ferrari compete on the track.
As a unique and exclusive prize, delivered in conjunction with Kaspersky Lab’s participation in the Ferrari Challenge series, the prize included 25 paddock passes, the full Ferrari Motorhome hospitality experience and even gave the reseller the chance to have their own company logo appear on the side of a Ferrari race car.
The High Performance Club is a partner incentive programme launched by Kaspersky Lab in June 2012. The programme was designed to reward partners that demonstrated a commitment to driving new business sales and opportunities to further build business on. Resellers won points as part of their day-to-day new business activities for the chance to win money-can’t-buy hospitality prizes that included tickets for the London 2012 100m finals and Silverstone Grand Prix, as well as the Partner hosted Ferrari event.
Andrew Lintell, Vice President Channel, Europe for Kaspersky Lab commented: “Partnership is a word that we all hear a lot, but at Kaspersky Lab it is a fundamental part of how we work. Relationships have to be mutually beneficial to be successful, and the High Performance Club is the latest innovative programme to reinforce this philosophy. Through motivating every part of our partners’ organisation; from sales people to Managing Directors; individually targeted rewards right the way through to money-can’t-buy opportunities for partners to promote themselves to their customers, Kaspersky is the security vendor dedicated 100% to the channel. It’s these advantages that make the difference in today’s marketplace and we are committed to providing the best security technology through the most dedicated and skilled channel partners in the industry.”
“I would like to say a big thank you to Kaspersky Lab for enabling Complete IT Systems to be part of this fantastic Ferrari sponsorship experience – it truly is a “money can’t buy” opportunity for us to build closer relationships with our top customers, in a stunning environment. Winning the competition recognises the hard work the team has put in to driving new business which has created the ideal platform for us to build the business and its reputation in the marketplace,” commented Paul Spence, Managing Director at Complete IT Systems. “Kaspersky has been a trusted and valued partner for five years and I’m sure that partnership will continue to be successful in the future.”
