Level 3 hosted in mid-June its second annual Business Partner Advisory Council (BPAC) meeting at the Level 3 campus in Broomfield, Colo.
Top Level 3 executives, including CEO Jim Crowe, spoke to the advisory council on the company’s vision and strategy, particularly around its enterprise services.
“Level 3 reinforced our commitment to the Business Partner Program and anticipate this to be a critical part of our growth strategy,” said Bill Steen, director of marketing and partner programs, for Level 3.
Four master agents and seven direct agents attended, including Jay Bradley, Intelisys; Jack Knocke, MicroCorp; Geoff Shepstone, TBI; Vince Bradley, WTG; Emmet Tydings, AB&T; Ron Dunworth, Advoda; Ian Kieninger, CDW; Chris Palermo, Global Communication Networks; Michael Murphy, New England Fiber; Steve Moody, Presidio; and Douglas Renner, Peak IP.
Council members attended sessions to identify ways Level 3 can strengthen its program. Areas discussed included automation, spiffs and incentives, and field support. Level 3 currently is evaluating the partner feedback, Steen said.
Along with business, the meeting included recreation. Level 3 hosted a golf outing followed by a partner dinner.
On the second day, Level 3 hosted a dinner and E-Town radio taping concert at the Chautauqua Dining Hall and Auditorium located in Boulder, Colo.
