“The Emergent team has come together during this past year to embrace a culture of execution and accountability. I am so proud of our Red Hat leadership team for taking our business to the next level so that we can best serve our customers and the Red Hat Community,” stated Paul Kohler, Emergent Executive Vice President.

As Partner of the Year, Emergent experienced the greatest growth and had the most significant impact on Red Hat’s business in the US. Much of the growth stems from Emergent’s dedication to becoming the leading Red Hat Services Elite Partner and Emergent Technologies Practice. In 2016, Emergent operated with focus and flexibility to support product resale opportunities, priming of RHT Consulting engagements, and key sub-contracting services to the RHT Consulting Resource Management Office. In addition, Emergent made an investment in ETP resources to build out its technical capabilities, support the Red Hat channel, and commit to ensuring customer successes. The Middleware Partner of the Year award recognizes the dedication and impact Emergent has provided to Red Hat's Middleware Business in 2016.

What lies ahead in 2017? Emergent Red Hat Sales Engineer Sean Walsh comments, “We are looking forward to expanding our capabilities to educate, drive sales, and deliver services around Red Hat’s Emerging Technology portfolio to more customers through the Federal, State and Local, and Education markets.”
