Orange Business Services named as Cisco Global Enterprise Partner of the Year

Orange Business Services was named Cisco Global Enterprise Partner of the Year at the Cisco Partner Summit in Las Vegas on November 7, 2019. The award was given to Paul Joyce, Executive Vice President - Orange Global Solutions for Business at Orange Business Services, by Chuck Robbins, the Chairman and CEO of Cisco.

It marks a long and fruitful partnership between Cisco and Orange Business Services that stretches back for 25 years. Way back in October 1994 the first partnership deal between Cisco and Orange was made, and now our joint business is booming as we work together to address key technologies and market transitions.

Benoit Delanoe, Technology Partner Director at Orange Business Services, was at the awards and afterwards explained why Orange Business Services had secured this award:

“Orange Business Services is very happy to receive this award, which demonstrates our commitment to our partnership with Cisco. “We feel we got this award because our partnership is stronger than ever, with unique business momentum and close to 50% growth for the last three years. Orange and Cisco have worked proactively together to oversee market transformation with software, SDX, cx, etc. Together we present a rich joint value proposition, with remarkable co-innovation capabilities as well as a consistent excellence in execution. However, and most importantly, it’s our shared values that really make our partnership unique. We both believe in customer first, people empowerment, co-innovation, simplicity and execution. This award rewards all our teams involved in this partnership, including sales, presales, engineering, business units, CSO, sourcing and marketing.”

Time doesn’t stand still though, and now we’re looking forward to another 25 years of innovation in partnership with Cisco and our customers.
