New York March 9, 2016 – Presidio announced today that it has received two Cisco® Partner Summit Global awards, as well as an additional 13 geographic and regional awards, most notably being recognized as Global Cloud Builder Partner of the Year, and Global Architectural Excellence Partner of the Year for Collaboration. Cisco revealed the winners at a Global Awards reception during its annual partner conference held last week in San Diego, California.

Awarded to exemplary channel partners, the Cisco Partner Summit Global awards are designed to recognize best-in-class business practices and to serve as a model to the industry. Areas of consideration include innovative practices, architecture-led approach successes, strategic business outcome-focused programs, and seizing new opportunities and sales approaches.

“It gives me great pleasure to recognize the bold and innovative accomplishments of our partners who have demonstrated the power of capturing market trends to provide even greater value to our customers,” said Wendy Bahr, senior vice president, Global Partner Organization, Cisco. “I am honored to present these awards to Presidio in recognition of its outstanding achievement in leading customers to discover how making technology a business differentiator leads to the ultimate benefits.”

“Cisco’s recognition again this year as the Cloud Builder Partner of the Year is a testament to the investments we’ve made the past few years in Presidio Managed Cloud, Converged Infrastructure, and our latest investment in Sequoia Cloud Services,” stated Bob Cagnazzi, Chief Executive Officer of Presidio. “In addition, being singled out from the entire global partner community for Collaboration is a strong affirmation of the roots of Presidio and our long history of expertise in Collaboration,” he continued. “Presidio has been built on the philosophy that we want to excel in every geographic market in which we operate. I can think of no better recognition of that than the awards recognizing us at the Global, Geographic, Americas, National, and Area levels within Cisco.”
