Essextec (Essex Technology Group, Inc.) was named a winner of a 2013 IBM
Beacon Award for Outstanding Services Solution with Global Technology
Services. This honor is awarded each year in recognition of a select number of
IBM Business Partners who have delivered not only innovative solutions, but
have set the standards for business excellence, ingenuity, and creation of an
exceptional client experience.

“We are honored to receive the Beacon Award,” states Jim Torney, President of
Essextec. “The recognition is confirmation of our strategy over the last ten
years to invest in and capitalize on the industry trend of customers moving
away from owning IT assets and toward implementing managed IT services
solutions. The market has matured to such a point now that the majority of our
customers want to evaluate a services based solution. In 2012, we collaborated
with IBM to create a new model for market penetration and delivery of highly
integrated GTS and Essextec solutions in the areas of security, cloud managed
services, business continuity and resiliency. Curtis Lumber, for instance,
implemented a new infrastructure solution designed by Essextec and managed in
a private cloud environment by IBM.”

The Beacon Awards are a vital element of IBM’s Business Partner recognition
program. Announced at the IBM PartnerWorld Leadership Conference in Las Vegas,
Nevada, United States and selected by leading industry influencers and IBM
executives from among hundreds of nominations, IBM's Beacon Awards recognize
IBM Business Partners who have demonstrated business excellence in delivering
IBM based solutions resulting in client transformation and business growth.
This year’s awards recognized Business Partner achievements across 30 award
categories.

“Everyday, IBM Business Partners around the world provide innovative solutions
to their clients based on IBM products and services,” said Mark Hennessy,
General Manager, IBM Global Business Partners. “The winners of this year’s
Beacon Awards are Business Partners who not only delivered superior innovation
through their award winning solution, but also offered unique client value by
using their skills and expertise to deliver the business capabilities their
clients need to achieve success in their own business ventures. We
congratulate Essextec on winning the Beacon Award for Outstanding Services
Solution with Global Technology Services and demonstrating its ability to
provide value by incorporating a highly innovative and unique model for
delivery of integrated GTS and Essextec solutions in the areas of resiliency,
security, and cloud managed services."
