Info Directions Inc. (Booth 217), a provider of net-centric billing, rating, order management, workflow and selling solutions for communications service providers, is honoring the recently retired Gary Lawrence, an industry veteran and Info Directions sales director, at a special celebration held at COMPTEL PLUS.
Lawrence has been involved in the telecom industry for more than 30 years, spending the last seven years at Info Directions as director of sales for the Central Region. He started his career at Indiana Bell Telephone Co., and held numerous sales and marketing positions at AT&T, Sprint and LCI International. In 1992, he became a national account manager at Centillion Data System, a telecommunications billing company, and later, in 1996, he joined VLM Consulting Inc.
Gary Lawrence is the genuine article — someone who leads by example and earns the respect of his clients, co-workers and even his fellow competitors, said Derrick Van Grol, vice president of marketing and sales at Info Directions. We are certainly going to miss him and the many contributions he made to Info Directions and to the industry.
Info Directions encourages everyone to stop by the Info Directions booth this week to wish Lawrence the best as he takes on the challenges of retirement much more golf, time with his family and completing some projects around the house for Jane, his wife of 41 years.
