Kelway awarded coveted Cisco Gold Certified Partner status

Phil Doye, Kelway’s CEO

Highest partner endorsement from Cisco boosts Kelway’s commitment to continued excellence in unified computing and the converged datacentre

Kelway, the UK’s leading mid-market IT provider and CRN’s 2009 Reseller of the Year, has achieved Cisco Gold Certified Partner status, the highest certification level for partners within the Cisco partner programme. Widely acknowledged as one of the industry's most rigorous accreditation programmes, Gold certification sets the industry standard for technical excellence.

Maria Richards, Technical Director at Kelway, says: “We are delighted to have achieved Cisco Gold Certified Partner status. For customers looking for Cisco advice, consultancy and implementation it represents the ultimate badge of trust and confidence, and makes us the right choice for all their datacentre virtualisation and unified computing needs.”

Managing Director of Channels for Cisco UK & Ireland, Bernadette Wightman, comments: “We have been working with Kelway for a number of years and are pleased to welcome them to our top tier of partners. Gold Certification demonstrates the strongest possible partnership with Cisco and a focus on the technology needs of customers at the very highest level.”

While this endorsement is a clear acknowledgment of both technical and sales expertise, for Kelway it represents more than that, as CEO Phil Doye explains: “The convergence of storage, servers and networking in the datacentre calls for a new breed of solutions provider that can effectively leverage all these elements to deliver truly unified computing. We view this accreditation as part of a strategic move towards the delivery of services and solutions in the converged datacentre. We are committed to pursuing excellence in virtualisation and unified computing with continued vigour backed up by the strength of our partnership with Cisco.”
