Hello Partners!

 
The 2013 Worldwide Partner Conference this year ushered in a multitude of new opportunities for partners, dovetailing with our biggest year of product launches in company history. Several exciting programs, such as the First Time Attendee program, were piloted at this year’s conference as well. The WPC Sales Achievers was one of those new endeavors, and it recognized top partners in eleven categories for their exceptional sales results in FY13.
 
The inaugural Sales Achievers Celebration took place during WPC at the 2013 Partner Celebration. While enjoying a club-level view of the performances by Fitz and The Tantrums and Lenny Kravitz, partners heard from and interacted with Microsoft executives, such as Vahé Torossian, Jon Roskill, and Mark Hill. The ceremony provided us with the chance to honor our partners’ outstanding achievements intimately and personally. Each of the winners and finalists were nominated first and then judged by a Microsoft Executive sponsor. As Corporate Vice-President of the Worldwide Partner Group Jon Roskill said in his congratulatory letter, the Sales Achievers winners “can be very proud of this honor, which only a few of our finest partners ever achieve. You’ve demonstrated true passion, leadership and performance at the highest level.”
 
These partners truly earned the recognition they received at this prestigious event—so, without further ado, we’d like to introduce you to the Sales Achievers Winners of 2013!
