CORRECTION -- Insight Celebrates Its Partners at Synergy

November 3, 2016 12:00 AM EDT

TEMPE, ARIZ.-- At Insight's partner event, Synergy17 - Exploring New Horizons Together - the world's leading technology companies came together at Sheraton Wild Horse Pass in Chandler, Ariz. for two days of presentations and discussions on strategy, marketing and growth. During the evening awards ceremony, Insight's partners were recognized with awards celebrating our mutual successes.

Each individual award was custom designed by talented local Phoenix artist, Roy Wasson Valle, to embody this year's theme of collaboration and the opportunities that come with it. "The award is a combination of a machine and human hand. The design brings to the forefront the connection and collaboration taking place between Insight and its partners as they explore new horizons together," said Wasson Valle. "I am honored to once again be a part of this process."

Last year, Wasson Valle created awards that recognized Insight's partners in step with the company's values of Hunger, Heart and Harmony as well as a unique piece of artwork labeled "The Heart of the Desert." In 2013 a wildfire claimed the lives of 19 Granite Mountain Hot Shots, an elite firefighting squad in Yarnell, Ariz., leaving the community devastated by the tragedy. Valle reclaimed burned wood from amongst this destruction, giving it new purpose as the base of the Heart of the Desert Awards.
