Cisco announced its Partner Awards for the North Central Select Region and recognised Marco employees Jered Schock and Bryce Nelson for their outstanding partnership.
Cisco named Schock the Most Strategic Account Manager of the Year for the North Central region. Schock helps organisations identify and implement solutions to promote efficiency, productivity and growth as a Marco senior technology advisor and account manager based in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Nelson received Cisco’s MVP award for the region. The company said that Nelson is known for his focus on understanding the client’s needs first to effectively create a roadmap based on the client’s end goal, as a senior technology advisor for Marco. He works out of Marco’s Fargo, North Dakota, office.
“Bryce is absolutely one of our most knowledgeable technology advisors, and customers gravitate to his solution recommendations. We are proud to have him on our team, and I am not surprised at all at the designation of MVP,” said Matt Kanaskie, Marco Vice President of IT sales.
Nominations for Cisco awards come from their peers in the field who then vote for a winner.
“Jered has been an amazing asset and consistent contributor to Marco’s IT division growth. We are proud to have him on our team and very happy to see him get recognised for all his hard work,” Kanaskie said.
Schock began working in the technology industry 18 years ago, joining Marco in 2016. “I wanted to work for a technology company that was growing, innovative and had integrity and competence at the leadership level,” Schock said.
Schock attributes his success in part to trust and open communication. “Working with the vendors, I try to find out what makes them successful, while we are helping customers. If it’s good for the customer, the vendor and Marco, we all win – and that develops close relationships on all sides,” Schock said.
Nelson has worked in the industry for more than 20 years, joining Marco in 2013. “I saw Marco continually expanding their footprint, not only in territory but technology solutions. I wanted to work with a growth-driven organisation with leadership who understood the industry and provided opportunities to expand my career.”
In recognition of Schock and Nelson’s achievements, Marco is donating $2,500 (€2,145) each to a non-profit organisation of their choosing. Schock selected the Sioux Falls Hope Coalition, which focuses on narrowing the achievement gap in the Sioux Falls community by ensuring every child has a chance to attend preschool regardless of their family’s ability to pay.
