Hello SMB Partners,
I hope 2021 has started as a wonderful year for you all. I am optimistic this year will be a better year for all of us. 2020 was a very unpredictable year, with many challenges we all had to overcome. I genuinely believe that with challenges come opportunities.
We saw examples of opportunities in 2020 with numerous companies moving to the work-from-home model. In 2020, distribution as a whole saw year-over-year sales grow within the PC & peripheral category by 14%* to support the demand for remote work. Overall distribution cybersecurity sales grew 41%** to help ensure companies' data remained secure with their associates' working remotely. We all had to pivot the way we do business to support our customers and the market.
We continue to support you in various ways, including providing a team of dedicated individuals supported by Mario Mazzotta and Aline Desjardins. These two managers have a combined 20+ years' experience working within the IT industry. They manage a team of over twenty SMB sales associates who want to help your business grow.

I look forward to all of us having a great 2021!
