During the past two years, Carousel’s Agent Partner Program has recorded 1,500 percent annual revenue growth. Launched in April 2017, the program has expanded significantly through the recruitment of direct partners nationwide. These partners have aligned with Carousel and its industry-leading technology partners – including Avaya, Cisco, Microsoft and Verizon – to address the rising demand for carrier services, managed services, hosted, cloud, security, collaboration, unified communications and data infrastructure solutions. This range of managed services offered through this program makes the Carousel Agent Partner Program unique in the industry.

Here’s our list of channel people on the move in March.

“Carousel’s Agent Partner Program is experiencing stronger than anticipated demand in areas such as unified communications, collaboration, cloud and security from solution providers nationwide who are leveraging our total solutions offerings, comprehensive back office and project management support and our 25-year track record in delivering superior customer experience,” said Kennedy. “We continue to make major investments in all aspects of our Agent Partner Program and adding Jim Barrucci to our team underscores our commitment to channel growth and client partnerships.”

Barrucci Named Verizon Program Director

A 20-year Verizon veteran with extensive experience in channel sales, recruitment, and direct sales to enterprises, Barrucci will be responsible for increasing channel sales for Verizon’s solutions and expanding partnerships with existing and new telecom agents and MSPs.

“Joining Carousel in this key role is a natural next step and it will allow me to apply my knowledge and expertise to the entire Carousel Verizon team,” Barrucci stated. “With Carousel’s status as a Verizon Platinum Partner, Verizon has been an invaluable business partner and we look forward to increasing our joint go-to-market expertise to meet the needs of our channel partners nationwide.”
