Crayon was recognized for providing outstanding solutions and services in both Saudi Arabia and the Philippines.
Crayon Saudi Arabia, which was founded four and a half years ago, has experienced rapid growth and strong financial performance.
“Our strong partnership with Microsoft, along with this award, further validates and accelerates Crayon’s ambitions in the kingdom in making it a regional hub for our digital transformation, AI, and cloud services. We are truly excited for what the future holds for Saudi and the positive impact that the Crayon and Microsoft partnership can have on it,” said Ziad Rizk, CEO of Crayon Middle East and Africa.

In the Philippines, which was established in 2018, the team has grown quickly, and a third of Crayon Philippines employees are cloud architects. This impressive number is in response to the region’s commitment to support the increasing demand for localized services delivery.
As a result, Crayon Philippines has grown its cloud business, resulting in a 300% YoY growth just this year.
“We are excited about future possibilities, approaching business innovatively together and building upon the synergies that already exist,” said Rhonda Robati, Senior Vice President for Asia Pacific. “This award empowers and allows us to delight our joint customers and partners even more through Microsoft’s technology and Crayon’s IP, solutions, and services.”
This is the second time in three years that Crayon Philippines has won this award, reflecting its commitment to its strong collaboration with Microsoft.
“I am honored to announce the winners and finalists of the 2021 Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards,” said Rodney Clark, corporate vice president, Global Partner Solutions, Channel Sales and Channel Chief, Microsoft. “These remarkable partners have displayed a deep commitment to building world-class solutions for customers – from cloud-to-edge – and represent some of the best and brightest our ecosystem has to offer.”
