CHICAGO – April 5, 2021Peerless Network, a leading-edge global communications provider since 2008, is experiencing exceptional adoption of its voice services by enterprise customers of all sizes across the U.S. To support this growth, the company is investing heavily in its channel team with two new Channel Sales Directors and a Senior Sales Engineer.

Nicole has worked in the channel for over 20 years, most recently with Lumen (formerly CenturyLink) and Comcast Business. She also spent six years with TeleProvision Communications as an agent providing her with experience to understand first-hand the needs of the channel community.
