DALLAS, March 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Committed to delivering world-class products and services to help their customers meet their complex IT challenges, Hostway today announced it recently received four prestigious awards and rankings for its innovative reseller program. These recognitions reflect the growth of the company's Reseller Partner Program, achieved throughout 2015, and the growth expected in 2016. The program offers channel partners – such as MSPs, independent software vendors, and VARs – an easy way to expand their service portfolios with cloud services. Hostway received awards for the MSP 500, 2015 Partner Program Guide, Coolest Infrastructure Vendors, and their VP of Channel Partners earned a 2016 Channel Chief recognition.
"We're honored to receive these industry awards, which reflect the emphasis we place on refining and investing in our partner program," said Hostway CEO Bob Boles. "Our partner program is integral to our ongoing growth and success, and we're well positioned to have a successful 2016 as our partners and end customers continue to rely on our cloud hosting and cloud infrastructure offerings. Special congratulations are also in order for Jim Ciampaglio, who has strengthened our current channel partnerships and forged new relationships that will serve us well going forward."
Hostway's VP, Channel Partners, Jim Ciampaglio, received recognition as a "Channel Chief," which are honorees that represent the cream of the IT channel crop – leaders who drive the channel agenda and evangelize the importance of channel partnerships. Each of the 2016 Channel Chiefs demonstrated loyalty and ongoing support for the IT channel by consistently promoting, defending and executing outstanding channel partner programs. Also a recipient of the Channel Chief award in 2013, Ciampaglio joined Hostway in late 2014 to drive channel partnership activities for all Hostway services, including expanding relationships with existing partners and forming new alliances.
"I'm honored to receive CRN's Channel Chief recognition, and am proud of the work performed by the entire team at Hostway to expand the reach of our strategic partners by enabling new paths to market," said Ciampaglio. "By continually offering a full mix of solutions and products for partners of all sizes, we have empowered our strategic partners to dynamically meet the needs of their customers while staying ahead of the ever changing demands of technology."
The 20 Coolest Cloud Infrastructure Vendors of the 2016 Cloud 100 recognizes Hostway as a top provider and states it "revamped its channel program last year with a vision of making it easier for partners to run their business."
The 2016 MSP 500: Hosting 100 recognizes those companies in North America whose approach to delivering managed services is one innovative step ahead. It includes managed service providers who own and operate their own data centers and provide subscription-based services.
Hostway is featured in the CRN 2015 Partner Program Guide, which offers the information solution providers need to evaluate IT vendors they are considering working with. The guide is based on detailed applications submitted by over 200 vendors, outlining all aspects of their partner programs.
