It’s no doubt that 2020 has, so far, been a challenging year for everyone around the world. At Selligent, we have made a commitment to continue to support our employees, clients, and partners during these unprecedented times, and to make everyone’s health our top priority. While the situation surrounding COVID-19 continues to evolve, with everyone’s safety in mind, we made the difficult decision to postpone our annual Global Partner Summit to 2021.
We recognize that our global partners are working hard to maintain business continuity and prepare clients for “the new normal” – once stay-at-home orders have been lifted around the world. To be respectful of everyone’s safety and time, we felt that it is best to refocus our efforts on supporting partners in the frontlines, delivering value to our joint clients and prospects.
Regardless of these uncertain times, there is one thing that remains certain: how much we value our global partnerships. We recognize the great work that our partners have delivered over the past year, and even though our Global Partner Summit is on hold, a celebration of our partners will still go ahead!
The Selligent Partner Awards acknowledge stand-out partners who, in the last year, were especially strong advocates of Selligent, are trusted advisors for clients and prospects, and delivered significant value for our respective businesses.
In the run-up to our Partner Award celebration, here are the 2020 nominees:
At Selligent, we think all of our partners are worthy of merit, but here is what the Partner Team had to say about why this year’s nominees were particularly noteworthy:
Since we signed a partnership with Acceleration a little over a year ago, we have hit the ground running and exceeded expectations on both sides. We have worked on a number of projects that drive our mutual clients’ success. More than anything though, our success comes from the phenomenal individuals on both teams. We are thrilled to have Acceleration as a Selligent partner.
– Walker Moriarty, Head of Partnerships, North America
Everyone at Selligent enjoys working with the team at DALE. They’re agile, reliable and do a fantastic job for our clients – they’re just a great bunch to work with. Working with the DALE team, it quickly becomes apparent that they are highly regarded within Selligent and our clients, and they are a valuable asset to our Partner Ecosystem.
– Sam Fogwill, Head of Sales UK, and Sarah Martin, Partner Manager, UK
eMatters excelled in adopting Selligent Marketing Cloud internationally and have provided outstanding service to our customers. Their ability to adapt new innovations within the Selligent platform, and deploy these to benefit customers, makes them a trusted party for our brands – translating ambitious strategies into operational success.
– Nicolas Van Vijnckt, Head of Partnerships, BeNeLux
“From the offset, Future Marketing were highly engaged with us – showing real advocacy in our platform and playing a critical role in our sales process. In such a short partnership span, we’ve already secured a joint client, proving that they can hit the ground running as a value-added partner to both Selligent and our clients.”
– Sebastian Mengewein, Head of Sales, DACH
We’ve only kicked-off our partnership with ONE Marketing a year and a half ago, and are already on to our second joint project. ONE Marketing has a very knowledgeable team, and continues to show strong willingness to further develop their Selligent skills. They are always supportive of driving demand, lead gen and brand awareness for Selligent in Nordics.
– Dennis Peters, Head of Sales – BeNeLux & Nordics
The Performance Sales team has a great reputation among the largest companies in Portugal. We started working together at the beginning of 2019 and our work paid off early this year as we closed a large deal with a major international bank, that we hope to name publicly very soon! The best thing about our partnership with Performance Sales: this is just the beginning.
– Pablo Rueda Salgado, Partner Account Manager, Iberia
Proximity was already a great partner in Spain, and expanding in France reinforced our global commitment and strong partnership. Securing Klépierre as a customer was a big step towards furthering this goal. I have no doubts that we will benefit from Proximity’s ability to create innovative and high-performing strategies that offer great value to current and future clients.
– Pascal Angeli, Partner Account Manager, France
Reply has been a Selligent partner for a couple of years. They’ve helped with lead generation and continue to support customer onboarding, while also helping secure new clients. In 2019, we signed two new accounts in Italy – fashion brand Capri, as well as online supermarket EasyCoop. We are excited to power more journeys for our joint clients in the coming year.
– Gian Mussolino, Partner Account Manager, Italy
We thank each and every one of our partners for their continued dedication to Selligent and we look forward to another successful year together. Congratulations once again to all of our nominees.
