LONDON, January 31, 2019 — Cloudreach, a leading cloud solutions provider, announced today that it has been named Public Sector Consulting Partner of the Year in the EMEA region by Amazon Web Services.

Each year Amazon Web Services (AWS) recognizes partners who play key roles in helping companies drive innovation and build solutions on AWS.

“We’re thrilled to be recognised as the AWS Partner Network (APN) Public Sector Consulting Partner of the Year in EMEA,” said Chris Bunch, AWS General Manager at Cloudreach. “This follows our award earlier in the year for APN Professional Services Partner of the Year, and demonstrates our 10 year commitment and success with helping clients adopt AWS. One of the first activities I worked on when I joined Cloudreach was sign us up to G-Cloud 1, and the market has grown and grown from those early days.”
