In an exciting extension of a long-standing partnership, Highlander and Cisco Meraki have reaffirmed their commitment with a view to further developing new opportunities across the Meraki technology portfolio.
With significant investment committed by Highlander and Cisco Meraki, both parties hope to build on the impressive performance of recent years to extend the Meraki service and solutions offerings available to Highlander customers. The partnership announcement comes against a backdrop of network transformation occurring in the market as customers seek to digitally transform, better protect their businesses, and offer improved user experiences. Accordingly, Highlander will be responding to these challenges with solutions for enterprise wireless connectivity, software-defined networks, IoT and innovating with security to name just a few.
James Yates, Highlander’s Commercial Director & Head of Enterprise Sales commented: ‘’This extended partnership is reward for what we’ve already achieved with Cisco Meraki, but there’s still much more to come’’.
‘’We’re delighted to have the continued support of Cisco, and we’re excited for the new opportunities that can now be realised over the weeks and months ahead, something that we hope will benefit both Highlander, Meraki, and our customers for the long-term’’.
Andy Brocklehurst, Director, Meraki Channel & Distribution EMA added: ‘’Last year we saw tremendous triple digit growth for Meraki come from Highlander in the UK and this was down to their focus on building Sales and Technical capability around our Cloud Managed Platform. Whilst simplicity is the key to our success within Meraki, delivering business value to customers is what Highlander remain focused on’’.
‘’To build on this success both Highlander and Meraki are investing in deepening these capabilities and extending the full Meraki Platform so we both enjoy more fantastic years of mutual growth together’’.
As part of this ongoing investment, Highlander is adding to its existing technical capabilities with the addition of a dedicated Cisco Meraki specialist, and has already confirmed the appointment of Laurentiu Bacalu as Cisco Meraki Vendor Manager. With over 15 years of technical sales experience, Laurentiu has amassed a wealth of knowledge and expertise across every area of the Meraki technology line-up and is perfectly placed to drive the delivery of an expanded solution portfolio for Highlander customers.
‘’I’ve always been a big fan of the Meraki technology stack and see the immense value, incredible scalability, and intelligent insights it can deliver. I’m delighted to be taking up this new role and look forward to working with our customers to help them access all that Meraki has to offer’’.
