PlanetOne Communications is making a big push into the Northeastern United States.

The Arizona-based master agency has opened PlanetOne East, its office at 650 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, and hired a former Level 3 channel manager to lead its East Coast efforts.

The new location gets PlanetOne "close to our top sales partners," said Lauren Shapiro, president of PlanetOne. In terms of oversight, Paige Esposito has been hired to lead the branch. Esposito comes to PlanetOne from Level 3 where he spent almost the past four years working as a channel manager. He also, in his past 15 years in telecom, has worked for Verizon, MCI, AT&T and WorldCom.

Esposito will recruit new partners, including not just agents, but also VARs and integrators. His territory will include Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and other East Coast cities. 

"After years of working on the carrier side, I'm really excited to embark on true strategic selling with multivendor solutions," Esposito said.
