In recognition, 30 Microsoft partners, who were selected from a field
of 74 finalists, were presented with Microsoft Australian Partner of
the Year Awards. The award winners were selected from a group of
nominations based on their dedicated use of Microsoft technologies to
provide solutions for their customers' needs.
"It's been an unprecedented year in which the economic climate has
proven to be a true test of character for Microsoft and its partners,"
said Mr Paul Voges, SMB and Partner Group Director, Microsoft Australia.
"Against this backdrop, the winners of our annual Partner of the
Year Awards have shown extraordinary leadership in helping their
customers to run their businesses more effectively by getting the most
of their technology investments.
"Moreover, the Awards ceremony not only provides a great opportunity
to honour the winners and finalists, but also to thank all of our 14,000
partners for their hard work and commitment to working with Microsoft."
