Thompson tells Channel Partners his focus will be on continuing to build relationships.

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

“I want to spend time out in front of our customers and partners to understand how we can win together in 2020,” he said. “Technology is constantly changing in our industry (security, edge compute, managed IT, cloud) and I think the biggest challenge is educating our partners on new products and services, and getting them to adopt them into the portfolio of services they offer their customers. At CenturyLink, we continue to focus on providing our partner community with comprehensive, simple support to make it easy for them to understand and sell our services.”

In addition, CenturyLink has hired national channel managers overseeing master agent relationships.
