Exeter, Rhode Island, March 10, 2016 — Carousel Industries, a leader in communication and network technologies, professional and managed services, and cloud solutions, announced that it has been named ‘Midmarket Partner of the Year’ by Avaya, a global leader in business communications software. The award was presented to Carousel during the Avaya Americas Executive Partner Forum – an event dedicated to partner engagement and growth priorities for the year.
Carousel won the award as a result of achieving outstanding sales of Avaya products during 2015, as well as successful team-driven strategies, focused on capturing new opportunities in the midmarket. Carousel’s ongoing success in the midmarket is, in part, due to its deeply rooted strategic relationship with Avaya.
“Our entire team is grateful for this recognition by Avaya for the third year in a row,” commented Jim Marsh, Chief Revenue Officer of Carousel Industries. “The midmarket remains a critical segment of our overall business. As we continue to strengthen and grow our customer base in this market, we look forward to working closely with Avaya to make 2016 even more successful.”
The Avaya Connect Partner Program is a global reseller program designed to provide partners with fast and easy access to Avaya resources and innovations. The program focuses on the transformation occurring in the industry and how channel partners can capitalize on this shift. The event in San Diego celebrated those Avaya Connect Channel Partners who have successfully driven business outcomes for their customers.
“While we salute all of our partners who took the time to be part of our conference this week, special congratulations go to our 2015 award winners for their customer focus and passion for driving results,” commented Steve Biondi, Vice President, Global Partner Organization, Avaya. “Our partners are instrumental to Avaya’s success, and I’m pleased to recognize Carousel for a third year in the midmarket category.”
