NEW YORK - George Fischer, senior vice president of global sales at Verizon Enterprise Solutions, has named Janet Schijns vice president of global channels for Verizon Enterprise Solutions. Schijns succeeds Adam Famularo.
Verizon has driven significant growth in its channel business in the past 18 months, including a 10x increase in new business through the agent channel; the company will continue to build on the momentum of its channel team.
Most recently, Schijns served as vice president, enterprise marketing for Verizon Enterprise Solutions.
