New program designed to amplify the success of Nitel’s master agents and distributor partners

Nitel, a leading nationwide managed telecom service provider, today announced its Nitel Elite Partner Program. Open to Nitel’s top-performing master agents and distributors, the new partner program delivers dedicated partner support and business development resources including market development fund accrual and channel director alignment for agents and channel partners in their local markets.

“Building and nurturing a successful partner ecosystem is foundational to achieving exponential growth,” said Rick Stern, CEO, Nitel. “Master agents and distribution partners play an increasingly important role in the pre- and post-sales and support efforts of today’s agents and MSPs. Our new Elite Partner Program, combined with the expansion of our channel and business development teams, will make it easier for our master agents and distributors to engage and ultimately enable our channel partners with the technology, insights and resources needed to capitalize on the growing demand for advanced technologies including SD-WAN.”

The Nitel Elite Partner Program features eight master agents and distributors. These include AVANT, Converged Network Services Group, Intelisys, MicroCorp, PlanetOne Communications, Sandler Partners, Telarus and Telecom Consulting Group.

“Nitel is investing in the channel and expanding its solutions portfolio to further empower us and our partners with the latest technologies and services so together we can deliver the performance, value and reliability organizations need to embrace the cloud and transform their businesses,” said Adam Edwards, CEO, Telarus. “The launch of Nitel’s new Elite Partner Program further demonstrates its commitment to the channel, and we are proud to be among the first to join.”

Taylor Castranova, vice president, channel sales and account development for Nitel added, “We place great value on the relationships we have with our master agents and distributors. Our Elite Partner Program is designed to build on our mutual success and make it even easier to capture and create new opportunities for the partners we serve.”
