CentricsIT Named F5 UNITY Growth Partner of the Year, Transitions F5
Partnership to ADAPTURE
Acclaimed F5 Gold-Level Partner Spins Channel Business Off to Form ADAPTURE
Technology Group, LLC
ATLANTA, July 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CentricsIT has been selected as the
F5 UNITY Growth Partner of the Year and will be honored at the upcoming F5
Agility partner and customer summit July 30-31. This accolade comes as the
company officially announces the transition of all its channel business to the
newly formed ADAPTURE Technology Group, LLC. ADAPTURE President Robert Pastor
will attend the F5 Agility summit to accept the award on behalf of CentricsIT
ADAPTURE Technology Group, LLC
Pastor comes to ADAPTURE from ProSys, Inc. with over 30 years of experience
managing top-level accounts and high-performing sales, professional services,
and technology leasing teams.
"What a great way to launch ADAPTURE," Pastor mused. "I'm excited and honored
to accept the Growth Partner of the Year award at Agility this year.
CentricsIT has cultivated a fruitful relationship with F5 Networks as a gold
partner, and ADAPTURE is positioned to take that relationship to the next
level. We've been working hard to ensure a virtually seamless transition for
CentricsIT's F5 customers, and F5 is 100% behind the transition. We're ready
to do more great things with this partnership."
The F5 UNITY Partners of the Year awards recognize partners that demonstrate
superior account management, customer service, and technical insight. ADAPTURE
inherits gold partner status from CentricsIT, and the company intends to
further increase F5 technology sales and support and advance the professional
services area of the partnership, distinguishing itself from CentricsIT, a
company that specializes in surplus and secondary market IT.
"We're narrowing the focus on both sides to better serve our customers,"
explained CentricsIT President Derek Odegard. "With the channel side of the
business being handled proficiently by ADAPTURE, CentricsIT can continue to
establish itself as a distinct leader in the secondary hardware, IT asset
disposition, and third-party maintenance markets. We're completely separating
the two businesses because it makes more sense to our two disparate customer
bases, and they appreciate that."
All of the CentricsIT channel partnerships currently in place will also be
transitioned to ADAPTURE, including: Dell, EMC, Brocade, Barracuda, Juniper
Networks, Symantec, and Riverbed. Current CentricsIT customers are encouraged
to contact their account representatives or email info@CentricsIT.com with any
questions related to the transition.
