Nitel’s channel chief Michael Gough added, “We are thrilled to have Michael join our team in a leadership role.  His experience in delivering value to the channel will be critical as we grow the program.”

Masini will be based out of Nitel’s headquarters in Chicago and will lead a team of channel managers across the country.
