CLAREMONT, N.H. & AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Red River, a leading provider of IT hardware integration, maintenance and support services, today announced it has been named a winner in Dell’s PartnerDirect channel program as Philanthropic Partner of the Year for Dell’s Fiscal Year 2015. Red River’s continual and far-reaching philanthropic activities are the heartbeat of the company and enthusiastically supported by the entire employee base.
The annual awards that honor Dell partners for delivering exemplary solutions for their customers were presented at the Channel Partner Summit that kicked off Dell World 2014. Award winners are selected from a group of nominations based on their dedicated use of Dell technologies to provide solutions for their customers’ needs.
“Red River is incredibly honored to receive this recognition from Dell for the ongoing community activism and direct support that our company, and entire employee base, has provided through its dedicated philanthropic arm, Red River Technology Foundation,” said Rick Bolduc, CEO of Red River. “Dell technology has been instrumental in helping us fulfill our dual mandate and mission of encouraging students in the STEM fields and supporting U.S. military veterans transitioning to civilian life.”
For nearly two decades, Red River has built a tremendous reputation among federal and commercial customers for its superior IT expertise and personal touch, and the company considers its community outreach essential to its success. From renovating the historic Monodnock Mill in Claremont, N.H. to serve as Red River’s national headquarters and re-energizing the surrounding community to ongoing STEM students, Veteran and community service initiatives, Red River grows stronger through outreach and philanthropy. The company also extends community outreach across the country through multiple Community Service Projects (CSP). At each CSP, Red River brings over 100 employees to assist in critical areas like volunteering at an elementary school in New Orleans suffering from Hurricane Katrina after-effects, helping Bethlehem Centers in Nashville recover from flood damage, assisting residents in Villa del Rio, an impoverished mountainside neighborhood in Puerto Rico and providing over 600 hours and more than 14 weeks of labor to multiple projects at the Carolina Youth Development Center in South Carolina.
“We are very proud of the customers we serve in the Dell Federal and Federal Channel business, and we are also committed to serving the community in ways that extend beyond business,” said Elliott Williams, Regional Sales Director, Dell Federal. “Red River has proven to not only be a superior partner for us in business, but also in continuing our commitment to the community.
