Hello Partners!

Last week we gathered in Washington, D.C. at the 2014 Worldwide Partner Conference to celebrate and get galvanized for the year ahead. During the WPC week we recognized top partners for their exceptional sales results in FY14.
The Sales Achievement Program took place at the Partner Celebration on July 16. The ceremony provided us with the chance to recognize our partners’ outstanding achievements. Appropriately for an event that honors partners with the highest levels of expertise and sales acumen, this year’s Sales Achievers ceremony was held at the Carnegie Library, just across from the Walter E. Washington Convention Center where most of the WPC 2014 sessions were held.
Microsoft honors its Sales Achievers because you, our partner community, are vital to our mutual success. As Channel Chief Phil Sorgen remarked in his address to the Sales Achiever nominees and winners, “Our partners make all the difference in the world. You push us hard to be better, so we can go out and deliver great results for our customers together.”
These partners truly earned the recognition they received—so, without further ado, we’d like to introduce you to the Sales Achievers of 2014!
