Congratulations to the New IBM Champions

View Comments

Moments ago, Ed Brill just announced the new IBM Champions at PACLUG. For the past several weeks, I worked with a bunch of my colleagues as we went through and read all the nominations that were submitted. We worked towards a list 50 new IBM champions that are going above and beyond to evangelize solutions from IBM, especially within the last 12 months.

The IBM Champion program recognizes innovative thought leaders in the technical community — and rewards these contributors by amplifying their voice and increasing their sphere of influence. An IBM Champion is an IT professional, business leader, developer, or educator who influences and mentors others to help them make best use of IBM solutions and services. IBM Champions are not employees of IBM.

Here's the list of the new IBM Champions which has been approved by Alistair Rennie, General Manager of IBM Collaboration Solutions! Congratulations to all that were selected and I hope you continue to be great evangelists for IBM!!
