SWC Technology Partners, an award-winning provider of IT solutions for mid-market organizations, announced that Principal Consultant, Anthony Caragol, was named an Office Office Server and Services MVP Most Valuable Professional (MVP) for the third year in a row. This award is given to exceptional technical community leaders who actively share their high quality, real world expertise with others.

As a Microsoft MVP,  you are part of a highly select group of experts that represent technology’s best and brightest who share a deep commitment to community and a willingness to help others.

– MVP Program Team

MVPs are nominated by their peers, other MVPs and Microsoft personnel based on their contributions to the Microsoft community, which includes online forums, wikis, conferences, user groups, podcasts, websites, blogs, articles, social media, and books.

Caragol has been working at SWC Technology Partners since 2002 and is responsible for the technical leadership of SWC’s Microsoft Unified Communications practice. SWC’s Unified Communications offering includes Microsoft Exchange, Skype for Business and Office 365. Caragol also co-presents regular educational Chicagoland Skype for Business events.

These last few years as an MVP have been amazing as Skype for Business continues to grow and lead in the cloud space. Having that close relationship with the Microsoft product group as well as other MVPs has given me insights and perspectives that I couldn’t obtain anywhere else. I’m humbled to win for a third year and continue to be a part of this great community.

– Anthony Caragol

“We are very proud of Anthony for receiving this global recognition for the third year in a row,” said Adam Ferguson, Vice President at SWC Technology Partners. “He is truly dedicated to helping the community and our customers succeed with Skype for Business.”
