Aussie partners receive nods at Sage CEO circle awards

05 Dec 17

Cloud business management company Sage has announced the winners of its Sage CEO circle, an award program designed to recognise 50 channel partners who have shown outstanding performance in serving customers while recommending and advocating for Sage.

Partners competed against each other under the criteria of excellence in product revenue, customer migration units, license sales and referrals.

On top of the accolade itself, the top 50 winning business partners will join Blair Crump, Sage president, at an award winner’s reception at the Rosewood resort in Mayakoba, Mexico.

Jennifer Warawa, Sage EVP of Partners, Accountants and Alliances says, “I have seen true dedication and commitment to the Sage brand throughout the year, as well as an overwhelming customer obsession and sales excellence.  

“I am very proud to have our business partners as part of our amazing extended partner team. I look forward to spending time planning further growth and celebrating with our top performing partners in Mexico.”

The Sage CEO circle is a global program, and the local winners in Australia are:

  • MicroChannel

  • CitySoft Consulting Group

  • Leverage Technologies

Natalie Chrara, VP A/NZ Sales, said she was thrilled to see a high proportion of Australian partners being represented at the CEO circle this year.

“The success of our local partners reflects the success we have seen for our solutions in the market,” she says.

“Customers are embracing our business management solutions which deliver faster, simpler and more flexible capabilities at a fraction of the cost and complexity of typical ERP systems.

These products are sold exclusively through partners in the region so we quite literally couldn’t succeed without them,” Chrara concludes.
