PlanetOne Taps Windstream, AT&T Vets

You're hired

PlanetOne Communications has filled its expanding team with five new hires.

The Scottsdale, Arizona-based company moved into a bigger headquarters this spring to fit more employees. The master agent is increasing its headcount as it woos more MSPs than ever.

“We are thrilled to be expanding our team,” PlanetOne founder and CEO Ted Schuman said. “Each of these individuals comes with a tremendous amount of experience in driving channel partner success across the connectivity and cloud sectors. We look forward to leveraging their expertise to further deepen the already strong relationships we have with our channel partners and providers.”
