Yesterday (1-Feb-16), EMC announced the EMC Elect 2016 list. I am really honored to be listed as one of the 73 members from 700 nominations and 150 finalists. I was a member of EMC Elect 2014 and 2015 class and this is my third year in a row as EMC Elect..!
For those who haven’t heard of the EMC Elect program (if there are any), this is one of the leading tech-recognition program in the industry. This program recognizes the individuals with outstanding contributions to the community. More details on the program is available in the program FAQs.
There are 12 EMC Customers, 25 EMC Partners, and 2 independent contributors in this year’s list. 34 members are working for EMC and EMC federation companies.
In the previous years, there were many added benefits for EMC Elects including blogger briefings, Privileged access at events including EMC World, EMC World discount codes and not the least, gifts. The program is improving every year and I expect few more additional attractions this year.
