HARRISBURG, Pa., March 27, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- D&H Distributing, a major provider of SMB and consumer technologies to the North American high-tech channel, is proud to announce it has been recognized with a series of awards from both national and industry sources for its extensive services, programs, and strategies for the IT supply channel. The distributor and its executives have been recognized by the following sources:

  • CRN magazine’s Channel Chiefs list
  • Intel’s 2018 Distributor Innovation Award
  • CDN’s Top 25 Newsmakers
  • Channel Partners’ “Top 25 Organizations to Watch” in the Channel Influencer’s Awards
  • The ASCII Group Annual Distribution Survey, as the “Top Benchmark Survey Broadline Distributor of 2018”

All these honors have been announced in the last three months, and are in addition to the company having risen to #109 on the Forbes List of America’s Largest Private Companies for 2018, announced in the fall. D&H was also ranked #1 on the Central Penn Business Journal’s list of its Top Private Companies for 2018.

D&H is the go-to distributor for independent solution providers who deliver technology to the small business community. The company has grown rapidly in the past year, and has already added an impressive set of new executives and newly-launched business units in 2019. This includes the appointment of cloud services veteran Jason Bystrak as vice president of D&H’s new cloud Business Unit; and electronics and audio visual industry expert Peter Hurley as director of the company’s new ProAV Business Unit. The enhancements to D&H’s team—and to its overall value proposition—will help its customers capitalize on specific, high-yield opportunities in the marketplace such as hosted services, digital signage, collaboration, and unified communications deployments.

Details on D&H’s Recent Awards:

CRN Channel Chiefs: The distributor had three executives named to this prestigious list of channel-facing personnel: Vice President of VAR Sales Peter DiMarco, Senior Vice President of Vendor Management and Purchasing Tim Billings, and Executive Director of Vendor Management Tina Fisher. The feature honors team members who are dedicated to serving VARs, MSPs, and solution providers in the IT supply channel.

Intel’s 2018 Distributor Innovation Award: This was awarded to D&H’s Intel Business Unit, including its team of Intel Solutions Specialists, for their ongoing commitment in driving participation in the Intel Technology Provider program through D&H’s exclusive ITP Concierge Program.
