At CDW we value our coworkers and once a quarter we like to recognize a specific coworker that goes above and beyond his or her daily tasks. This nominated CDW Canada coworker, aka our “Rockstar”, has demonstrated commitment, determination and exceptional performance above the call of duty, with a task, project, process change or customer interaction while embodying the culture of The CDW Way.

  • She takes initiative in working directly with our customers, brings in technology resources and opens up service opportunities with every customer.

AND…

  • Is very efficient and helps when help is needed, and she never fails to achieve the goals in mind.
  • Not only is she tremendous at her job, but she treats all of her coworkers with kindness

Tell us a bit about yourself? How long have you been with CDW? What is your role?

I have recently joined CDW from Microsoft where I spent the last 7 years engaging with customers as an Account Manager and most recently as a Solution Specialist for DevOps and Azure.  I have worked in the Reseller business selling and supporting Software for 18+ years.  Prior to engaging in the Reseller business, I had worked for Molson Breweries for 11 years in IT managing their national hardware/software purchasing and asset management practice. Based in our Etobicoke, ON office, I leverage my 25+ years of Microsoft enterprise licensing experience, together with my in-depth knowledge of Microsoft’s license agreements and programs allow me to provide a high level of support to both the CDW sales team and their clients.
