Lenovo's Next Chapter
While acknowledging that recent channel program changes were tough on many partners, Lenovo executives say that the opportunities for growth with the company are massive. Lenovo's leadership for North America used the Accelerate 2018 partner conference to emphasize that efforts to rebuild trust with partners and reinvest in channel growth are well under way. And Lenovo has all the right pieces for gaining share in the PC and data center markets in North America, executives said during the conference this week in Las Vegas. "The mission is really to unbridle all that potential that's already existed," said Matt Zielinski (pictured), Lenovo's North America president for its PC and smart devices division. Since Zielinski joined the company from AMD in mid-February, he and other executives have "spent the last 13 weeks really diagnosing and dissecting the business, to really chart out a strategy that I believe is a winning one," he said.
