services to multilocation businesses and government agencies, has
launched “Drive Faster,” a new program designed to help sales partners
get up to speed quickly on Granite’s capabilities to support their

country, we’ll increasingly be working with many new channel partners,
some of whom don’t know about Granite and its evolution from a POTS line
aggregation company into a leading service provider for voice, data,
Internet, wireless, video and secure network solutions,” said Charlie
Pagliazzo, vice president channels for Granite.

“The Drive Faster program will introduce partners – new and old – to
Granite’s capabilities and culture. It gives them a chance to meet the
client development managers, engineers, project managers and other
personnel that touch channel support. Not only do they get to meet the
people behind the curtain, they’ll see first-hand how we’re built to
make life easier for them. And, we have a little fun, too.”

Partners interested in attending a Drive Faster event should contact
their channel manager or stop by Booth 952 at the Channel
Partners Conference & Expo
, April 9-12, 2019, in Las Vegas.
