Granite Sponsors TrainOurTroops at Channel Partners Evolution in Washington D.C.
Initiative Introduces Veterans to Career Opportunities in the Telecom & IT Sales Channel
QUINCY, Mass., & WASHINGTON D.C., – September 10, 2019 – Granite Telecommunications
, a $1.4 billion provider of communications services to multilocation businesses and government agencies, is sponsoring TrainOurTroops at the Channel Partners Evolution, an event for telecom and IT sales channels, September 9-12, in Washington D.C.
TrainOurTroops is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides U.S. veterans and their spouses with advanced online education and certification programs to ignite their civilian careers.
With the support of sponsors like Granite, TrainOurTroops brings veterans to Channel Partners Evolution, so they can attend education sessions, network and make contacts that help them achieve their career goals.
“Granite has been an instrumental sponsor of ours for several years now and enables us to bring veterans to the Channel Partner conferences to introduce them to organizations, learn, and network with civilian peers,” said Glen Brynteson, founder and president of TrainOurTroops. “These conferences allow us put veterans in a unique position that most don’t get the opportunity to be exposed to. Some of our veterans are transitioning and others are already in careers but feel they are underemployed. Yet others are leveraging our training and templates to start their own consulting businesses.”

This is the sixth time that Granite has sponsored veterans attending the conference since the initiative was launched by Channel Partners in 2016.
“Granite is honored to be sponsoring TrainOurTroops at Channel Partners Evolution again this year,” said Charlie Pagliazzo, vice president of channels for Granite. “We admire the work that TrainOurTroops does for veterans, especially as a volunteer-based organization, and we’re thrilled to support them at every Channel Partners event.”
