For telecommunications marketing firm PlanetOne Communications, 2012 was a year to remember. The company’s records were broken, it formed new strategic partnerships and the PlanetOne Telecom Tour was bigger and better than any other year as the company out-performed all expectations. Because of its great success in 2012, PlanetOne has decided to promote Lauren Shapiro (VP Operations) to President of PlanetOne.
"Lauren is a natural leader with a tremendous feel for the business and industry. You combine that with her 25 years in technology, unquestionable character, integrity, honesty, a proven track record of success and what she has accomplished here at PlanetOne and her appointment was well earned and deserved. I am confident in her new role we'll continue to exceed the expectations of our sales partners and vendors for many years to come,” said PlanetOne CEO Ted Schuman.
Celebrating 20 years in business, PlanetOne has continually supported Agents nationally and is also one of the largest Master Agents in the country. Additionally, it has been recognized by Phone (News - Alert)+ Magazine as a Top 50 Channel Programs in the industry for the past four years in a row.
Today, PlanetOne provides customized voice and data telecommunication solutions from an array of national telecommunications providers. The company’s team of experts can audit, analyze and provide an appropriate customized solution for businesses at no cost to its clients.
- Reflecting on the 2012, PlanetOne experienced significant achievements including:
- Record growth with 28-percent net revenue increase in 2012 vs. 2011
- Inc. 5000 recognition as one of the fastest-growing private companies in America for the second year in a row
- Brought together a panel of 11 channel chiefs at the year-end event
- More than 40 agents qualified to attend the 2012 Phoenix Open in PlanetOne's Private Skybox
- PlanetOne's Hangover Party was a success with over 175 agents, vendors and partners
With plans to make more progress in 2013, Shapiro commented, "2013 is already shaping up to be an incredible year for PlanetOne. We're getting ready to announce our President's Club winners and are expecting our biggest turnout ever. Plus we're already planning a huge event on the East Coast this coming June. Keep an eye out for an announcement from PlanetOne soon.”
To accommodate its continued growth in 2013, PlanetOne Team will be hiring more sales, support and management positions this year.
