SMAG Media Achieves Select Certification from Cisco USA
Milwaukee, Wisconsin – August 19, 2008 – SMAG Media, LLC announced today it has achieved Select Certification from Cisco®.
The Select Certification recognizes Cisco resale channel partners, whose primary focus is on the small- and medium-sized business
(SMB) market, those companies with fewer than 250 employees.
“SMAG Media is excited by our strengthened strategic partnership with Cisco,” said Kathleen Kosnar, vice president of SMAG Media.
“Cisco’s Select Certification will help SMAG Media to better manage its services internationally as well as locally.”
“The Cisco Select Certification was created in response to customer demand for channel partners to be capable of designing and
implementing SMB-specific Cisco solutions," said Surinder Brar, senior director of worldwide channels at Cisco. “With the Select
Certification, SMAG Media has made an investment in obtaining the training, skills and knowledge necessary to play a pivotal role
in meeting this increasing demand.”
