Exclusive Networks Groups Buys Turkish Distributor-Bilisimcim

Exclusive Networks Group Enters One of the Worlds' Fastest Growing Markets

PARIS, FRANCE--(Marketwired - Jan. 14, 2014) - EMEA SuperVAD Exclusive Networks Group has added Turkey based Bilisimcim to its portfolio as it continues in its quest to be the largest pan EMEA Value Add Distributor. With Turkey expected to be the fastest growing economy of the OECD members during 2012-2017*, this acquisition mirrors the Group's impressive growth strategy and provides a gateway into Asia.

"We wanted to start 2014 the way we finished 2013: by adding to our EMEA presence," said Olivier Breittmayer, CEO of Exclusive Networks Group. "The acquisition of Bilisimcim continues the momentum achieved in 2013, and critically provides us with a gateway into one of the most buoyant economies in the world. Not only this, with the extended geographical reach, our promise of one-touch, many connections, is further enhanced for both new disruptive vendors and our existing portfolio looking to expand and more efficiently scale their business."

Recently identified as one of the MINT emerging economic giants** (Mexico, Indonesia, Nigeria and Turkey), and often described as the next 'China', Turkey provides excellent economic prospects and reinforces Exclusive Networks Group's position as the leading independent EMEA value add distributor.

"Our business is rapidly expanding," said Halil Ibrahim Arslan, General Manager at Bilisimcim. "However, to push continued growth and to reach the next level of our development we required a partner with similar values that can help us to grow and evolve. Exclusive Networks Group has the expertise and the infrastructure to help us reach and serve both existing and new reseller partners. We are delighted to be working with the company to deliver added value to our region."

Bilisimcim currently employs a team of 23 at offices in Istanbul and Ankara. The acquisition reflects both organisations' commitment to not only offer the best possible security and networking solutions, but also boost growth levels within the Turkish region.
