On Friday 30th April, O2 Business announced the winners of its Partner of the Year Awards 2021 at a virtual award ceremony.
With over 22 approved O2 business partners in the running, midlands based Welcomm Communications were awarded O2’s Best Direct Partner of the Year 2021, for a fourth consecutive year.
“I was not expecting us to win for a fourth year in a row, as this has never been achieved by any other O2 Partner. The title of ‘Best Direct Partner’ tells the world that, after 32 years of experience at the heart of the industry, we still have a passion for and a commitment to supporting businesses transform the way they communicate and operate.
Whilst this was unexpected, it certainly doesn’t come as a surprise to me. I see every day just how hard our people work, going above and beyond for the small to medium businesses that we are proud to call our partners.
The reason people choose to work with an O2 partner like us, is that we know all of our customers by name – we build strong partnerships with our customers because ultimately, their success is our success too.
I would like to say a huge thank you to all of our staff for their efforts, as well as our customers and partners for their continued business and support – especially after what has been an incredibly challenging year for many UK businesses. That is why this recognition from a major network like O2 means so much to the team at Welcomm, who have helped our customers navigate this period of massive change in an exemplary way. I am incredibly proud of every single member of Team Welcomm.”
The annual awards recognise and reward O2 partners’ capability to deliver truly exceptional customer experiences, provide trusted digital knowledge, and reflect their commitment to supporting customers with the highest levels of technical support.
The awards were attended by over 100 guests who all tuned in from home, and were hosted by Gary Hill, Head of Partners with guests including Gareth Turpin, Sales Director; Maria Fernandez, Director of SMB and Kate Mulligan-Brown, Director of SMB Marketing.
“It’s been brilliant to come together as an O2 Partner Network to celebrate the great successes of our Partners over the last year.
It’s been a more challenging period than most for our customers, but our Partners have shown a real determination and resilience to continue to serve and adapt to our customers’ needs.
A huge congratulations to our worthy winners.”
