Arrow Electronics (NYSE: ARW) today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the "Leaders" quadrant of the "Magic Quadrant for IT Asset Disposition, Worldwide." 1

"For us, it is extremely gratifying to see the market recognition and external validation that the Gartner Magic Quadrant for IT Asset Disposition, Worldwide provides," said Mark Majeske, president of Arrow's global reverse logistics business. "We take our role as leaders seriously."

Gartner's evaluation of IT vendors involves a heavy emphasis on client feedback, as Gartner considers this component to be one of the most important measures of a vendor's success, as well as an important factor in the scoring.

Identified "Leaders" are those companies that execute well against a robust vision, and are well-positioned for the future. As a result, they have the highest scores for "Ability to Execute" and "Completeness of Vision."

""Our capabilities and reach are growing with the global demand for ITAD, and we believe we have the most robust set of capabilities and the greatest reach available to serve our customers wherever they need us," Majeske said.
