Neil Ledger Recognised as Channel Personality of the Year 2012

CRN UK Presents Top Accolade to Joint Head of Exclusive Networks UK

November 19th 2012, Alton, UK - Exclusive Networks UK's Neil Ledger has been honoured by CRN as its Channel Personality of the Year 2012, owing to his outstanding personal contribution to the industry, and the significant impact of successive channel business ventures spanning the last 20 years. The award was presented at a glittering gala event attended by nearly 2,000 channel VIPs in London on the 15th November.

"When we canvassed the industry for worthy recipients of this award, Neil's name was consistently raised time and time again," said Sara Yirrell, Editor of Computer Reseller News (CRN) and member of the CRN Channel Awards judging panel. "This was a decision taken by the whole editorial team at CRN. We regard Neil as being a beacon of success for the best part of two decades and believe that his leadership, personality and business acumen stand him apart from other industry figures."

Together with business partner and fellow head of Exclusive Networks UK, Ian Morris, Neil Ledger has gained a reputation as a serial channel entrepreneur, establishing and leading a series of highly successful distribution companies - most recently VADition, which was acquired by Exclusive Networks Group in 2011.

Commenting on the award, Neil Ledger said: "I'm naturally very pleased and honoured to accept this, and do so in full recognition of the enormous support both Ian and myself continue to enjoy from colleagues, reseller partners and suppliers. It's been a fantastic journey so far. Thank you to CRN, but this award is really down to everyone I've worked with."
