RoundTower Press Release

RoundTower Engineers Recognized for Social Engagement


(Cincinnati, OH) April 12th, 2017 – Each year, manufacturers such as Cisco, Dell EMC, VMware, and Nutanix recognize individuals who have distinguished themselves in their efforts to enlighten and grow the technical community by sharing their knowledge of IT and its potential to create positive business outcomes. These award lists are very selective and it is difficult to place on them. In the case of the VMware EUC Champions, for example, RoundTower Technologies is the only company in the USA with two recipients.

“Enabling and driving our people to reach the highest level of achievement across the IT industry, combined with our broad experience of working with thousands of organizations, enables us to deliver the best value to our customers,” says Keith Odom, VP of Technology Solutions for RoundTower. “We are especially grateful to our employees who are socially active because it not only helps our customers but the IT industry in general.”

Honorees are typically selected by a panel or voted in by contemporaries, based on their commitment to engage and lead their peers at hosted events, on the web and social media, and in professional relationships. Activities that demonstrate an investment of personal time and energy and are clearly motivated by passion rather than duty are especially valued. Although technical qualifications are not part of the criteria, most of the chosen RoundTower engineers hold multiple industry certifications. It is also interesting to note that several have earned more than one distinction over multiple years and some are founding members.

In addition to being recognized, recipients may gain significant benefits with the sponsor company such as additional exposure and promotion, greater partner access, invitations to exclusive events, and insights into customer trends so that they can continue to develop their sphere of influence.

“I feel very grateful and proud to have the opportunity to be a positive influence in the IT community,” says Rob Steele, a multiyear winner in three categories. “It would be difficult to overestimate the importance of the activities recognized by these awards. Social engagement not only facilitates mentoring and personal development, it drives innovation and advancement in technology and its application. RoundTower’s strong emphasis on social engagement in the technical community is constantly renewing our own corporate culture and the practice of IT in the industry at large.”

RoundTower has been highly acknowledged as a progressive company, earning awards from Ernst & Young, Forbes, Inc. 500, CRN, Deloitte, The Business Courier, and others. The fast growing technical consulting firm has three engineers to every one account manager and collectively holds more than 1500 IT and industry certifications. This reflects their philosophy of leading with technical proficiency to produce successful customer relationships—a position that has earned them strong partnerships with the manufacturers they represent.
