Posted: 5th December 2016

Grant McGregor are proud to have received another fantastic award and IT industry accolade. This first of only three Partner of the Year Awards was given to Grant McGregor from SolarWinds MSP for Community Partner of the Year.


At the beginning of November, three of the GM team; Jon, David L & Paul attended the SolarWinds conference in Edinburgh. And at the very start of the day they were pleasantly surprised to be asked to pick up this prestigious honour as Community Partner of the Year.

Grant McGregor have long been a partner of SolarWinds MSP (under their previous guises) for over 10 years and we very much value the great relationship with them so we feel honoured to have received this award.

“This demonstrates the close working relationships we’ve forged with our partner SolarWinds MSP in employing their technologies to defend and protect our clients’ IT systems from threats and disasters. Not only have we built great knowledge of how best to employ such Managed IT Services, but we can readily tap into SolarWinds MSP’s wealth of experience and insights to help our clients to develop their IT appropriately. It’s great to have this recognition of our successes together.” said Jon Towers, Director of Grant McGregor Ltd.

Here’s what Dave Sobel, Director of Partner Community and Field Marketing at SolarWinds had to say:

“Grant McGregor exemplifies the kind of partner the community values.  With an openness to share information, collaborate with other solution providers, and assist us as a vendor with valuable insights, the team at Grant McGregor has embraced the collaborative nature of success we strive for.  It’s a pleasure to work with the team, and we are excited to award them with Community Partner of the Year.”
