I would like to both introduce myself and thank the community for a warm welcome into the SBSC community. My name is Wes Cooper and I will be the new lead for the Canadian SBSC Community for Microsoft’s FY10 year. Satish Kanwar has left behind some very big shoes to fill as he accomplished great momentum and engagement into the SBSC community during FY09. Satish and I worked very closely together and share many of the same strategies and tactics for growing and supporting the SBSC community. I also plan to use my experience and  the best practices I’ve gained, over the last 2 years here at Microsoft, in helping to create some of our very successful programs such as, Ultimate VAR, FUEL and Licensing Academy, into the SBSC Program.

This is going to be a great year! with more training, more resources and an even greater connection. I feel very fortunate to be a part of this close knit community and I’m looking forward to taking on this new role and supporting our most valuable partners in the SMB space. 

Cheers,

Wes Cooper (i-wesco@microsoft.com)
