Brookfield, WI, — March 18, 2014
— Steve Buchanan, a Microsoft System Center expert and Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP), has joined Concurrency, Inc. as an infrastructure architect and regional solution lead. Buchanan, who is based in Minneapolis, is the author or co-author of several technical books focused on the System Center platform. Microsoft awarded him as MVP in the “System Center Cloud and Datacenter Management” category. Concurrency, a Midwest-based systems integrator, is known for fostering and hiring top Microsoft service-delivery talent. Concurrency currently employs four MVPs, one of the highest concentrations in the country.
“Our business model focuses on maximizing career success,” said Concurrency founder and president James Savage. “Our close relationship with Microsoft gives consultants, developers and engineers a launch pad for gaining industry recognition. In addition, knowledge-sharing is a core part of our culture. That’s helped us be successful in both serving clients and attracting top talent.”
Microsoft awards only about 4,000 professionals with the MVP award each year. Winners are spread across 90 countries and dozens of Microsoft technologies. Therefore, the number of regional winners for a specific technology is necessarily small. Microsoft rigorously evaluates candidates for their technical expertise, community leadership, and voluntary community contributions for the previous year.
