Congratulations to the 2014 WPC Partner of the Year Award Winners and Finalists!

imageThis is always an exciting time of year. WPC is just around the corner (still my favorite conference of the year!) and all of the partners are getting their plans together for the conference as well as everyone here at Microsoft, which includes the submissions for and choosing of the annual WPC Partner of the Year Awards. First, thank you to all of the partners who were among the more than 3,200 entries submitted this year for the 2014 WPC Partner of the Year Awards! That’s an incredible number of submissions and all of your success stories are fantastic to see. This is also the time of year when all of those submissions get pared down and ultimately, the winners and finalists are announced.

Congratulations to all of the Partner of the Year Award winners and finalists!
