Consistently recognized by Cisco for its customer success, security, and other technology achievements, Carousel was honored during the annual Cisco Partner Summit

NWN Carousel, a leading national IT, managed services, and cloud provider with an unwavering focus on ensuring customer success, today announced it was recognized with the Collaboration Partner of the Year award during Cisco’s Annual Partner Summit November 4-6 in Las Vegas. The award recognizes accomplishments of top partners from around the world that demonstrate success through customer achievements, innovation, and performance.

Surrounded by some of Carousel’s executive leadership team, Chief Revenue Officer Jim Marsh accepted the award on behalf of the company. Reflecting on the win, Marsh said, “receiving this award is validation of the Carousel teams’ commitment, energy, and accomplishments in delivering collaboration innovation and success to our customers.
