HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. – January 15, 2019 – XenTegra, an expert provider of integrated digital workspaces and managed services, today announced that it has been named the Citrix 2019 Worldwide Partner of the Year for the Americas. The award was given at Citrix Summit, 2019, held January 7-9 in Orlando, Fla. During the event, XenTegra was also showcased as one of three Citrix 2019 Innovation Award for Partners finalists.

“It was a welcome surprise to be named Citrix 2019 Worldwide Partner of the Year,” said Andy Whiteside, CEO, and Founder of XenTegra, who strives to be a ‘true’ partner in the value-added reseller space. “Achieving this honor not only shows that XenTegra is committed to Citrix as a partner, but that we are passionate about the ever-evolving space we know as end-user computing. We will continue to invest in our partnership with Citrix focusing on Citrix Cloud, Citrix Workspace and Citrix Networking. With the future of perpetual licensing constantly changing, subscription-based licensing will become more of a focus. This shift will allow our customers to benefit from greater flexibility and gives Citrix the ability to target opportunities outside the traditional ‘Citrix use case.’”

“XenTegra is being recognized as the top partner in the Americas as measured by their sales, growth, and overall commitment to Citrix. The competition was very tough this year, and XenTegra stood out from the rest,” said Craig Stilwell, VP, Worldwide Partner Sales at Citrix. “Their dedication to delivering people-centric solutions to their customers that combine freedom and security should be viewed as examples of excellence for every Citrix partner, which is why we are privileged to recognize them as our 2019 Worldwide Partner of the Year for the Americas.”

During Citrix Summit, XenTegra was also recognized as a finalist in the Citrix 2019 Innovation Award for Partners.
