Last week Microsoft announced the winners for the 2011 Microsoft Partner of the year award.

I am please to announce that Victrix (the company I work for), is nominated for the Microsoft Canadian Partner of the year.

“The annual awards honor Microsoft partners for delivering innovative solutions during the past year that directly address customer challenges. Award winners and finalists, chosen from nominations from around the world, will be recognized at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference 2011, the company’s premier annual event for industry partners, July 10–14 in Los Angeles.”

It’s a great team effort.
