The Global Technology Distribution Council (GTDC), the largest international consortium of IT distributors, announced the addition of CMS Distribution as one of three new members. The new members support the GTDC’s continued global expansion while further demonstrating the success and growth of distribution worldwide.
“The role of distribution is as important as ever at the center of technology ecosystems,” said GTDC CEO Tim Curran, noting that its members’ sales exceed more than $150 billion in annual revenue. “Our analysis of aggregate distributor sales reflects strong growth in the U.S. and Europe this year. Vendor partners are engaging in dynamic new ways to advance their business in current and emerging markets. These new GTDC members attest to the trends in action, as they’re all highly successful and adept at introducing new services to the channel.”
The new members operate in multiple countries, predominantly across North America and Europe as well as the Asia Pacific region. GTDC member benefits range from insights and engagement on key industry issues and opportunities to exclusive resources and participation in executive-level conferences throughout the world. An example is the organization’s most popular annual event, GTDC Summit, in San Francisco, Sept. 5-6.
