by Jenni Flinders, Vice President, Microsoft US Partner Group

With the 2014 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Washington, DC right around the corner (July 13–17), I’m thrilled to share with you the United States 2014 Partner of the Year Award winners. The excellence with which each of these partner companies represents the Microsoft ecosystem, and the industry as a whole, makes me so proud. Their commitment to delivering Microsoft-based solutions that meet customers’ increasingly complex technology requirements is a model for all of us who aspire to conceive and create bold solutions that don’t simply check a box, but truly serve others’ needs.

At WPC, executive representatives from each of these United States award winners will be invited to join me, and other Microsoft US executives, to watch one of the two Vision Keynotes (on Monday and Wednesday mornings) from the executive suites in the Verizon Center.

In addition to showcasing the impressive list of US award winners below, I want to highlight this year’s United States Country Partner of the Year, New Signature. New Signature’s path to success began years ago, when it made a strategic bet on delivering amazing experiences to customers built exclusively on Microsoft cloud services. In the past year, the powerful New Signature-Microsoft selling model netted 14,000 seats of Microsoft Office 365 across headquarters and almost 1,000 retail stores, and brought New Signature significant services business for the implementation of Office 365.

Please join me in congratulating all of these partners on their accomplishments.
