Lifesize founder and CEO Craig Malloy and vice president of Americas Matt Collier personally recognized standout organizations for their remarkable contribution to the sale and distribution of Lifesize HD video collaboration solutions. SYNNEX Corporation was recognized for its continued investment in Lifesize with a knowledgeable and solution-focused team, healthy inventory management, management of its GSA schedule and multiple customer-focused services, which help resellers who focus on video conferencing expand their services to the end-user while conserving customers' budgets that have traditionally been used for equipment, staff and travel.
