PlanetOne Communications Shatters Records in 2012 & Promotes Shapiro to President

Master Agent's Passion and Dedication Pays Off in 2012

(Scottsdale, Arizona) Records were broken, new partnerships were formed and the highly attended PlanetOne Telecom Tour was bigger and better than ever. 2012 certainly was a banner year for PlanetOne, their agents, vendors and partners as the PlanetOne team out performed all expectations.

As this is the time of year for reflection, here is a look back at some of the most significant PlanetOne achievements in 2012:

  • Record growth - 28% net revenue increase in 2012 vs. 2011
  • Inc. 5000 recognition - one of the fastest-growing private companies in America for the second year in a row.
  • 11 Channel Chiefs - PlanetOne brought together a panel of 11 channel chiefs with record attendance at the year-end event in Scottsdale
  • More Winners - 40+ agents qualified for an all-expense-paid trip to attend the 2012 Phoenix Open in PlanetOne's Private Skybox on the world famous 16th.
  • PlanetOne's Hangover Party in Vegas (in the Caesar Palace Hotel's "Emperor Suite") was a HUGE success with over 175+ agents, vendors and partners

"Given our success over the last 24 months it is with enormous pride that I am pleased to announce the promotion of Lauren Shapiro (VP Operations) to President of PlanetOne, says Ted Schuman, CEO. "Lauren is a natural leader with a tremendous feel for the business and industry. You combine that with her 25 years in technology, unquestionable character, integrity, honesty, a proven track record of success and what she has accomplished here at PlanetOne and her appointment was well earned and deserved. I am confident in her new role we'll continue to exceed the expectations of our sales partners and vendors for many years to come".

Looking to make even greater strides forward in 2013, President Lauren Shapiro gave insights into what promises the New Year holds.

"2013 is already shaping up to be an incredible year for PlanetOne. We're getting ready to announce our President's Club winners and are expecting our biggest turnout ever" said Shapiro. "Plus we're already planning a huge event on the East Coast this coming June. Keep an eye out for an announcement from PlanetOne soon." The record-breaking 2012 has the PlanetOne Team preparing for an even more exciting 2013. As such, PlanetOne team will be hiring additional sales, support and management positions to accommodate the current growth of the organization.
