IT and Telecom Industry Leader Earns Arizona Corporate Excellence (ACE) Award
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Nov. 07, 2016 – Celebrating nearly 25 years of success and record growth, PlanetOne Communications, the IT and telecom industry’s preferred connectivity partner, today announced it has been recognized as one of Arizona’s top 50 largest privately-held companies in the state. The honor was presented to PlanetOne last week as part of the annual Arizona Corporate Excellence Awards.
“We are honored to receive an ACE award and share our success with every member of our team, as well as the entire PlanetOne family which includes our channel partners and Preferred Providers,” said Ted Schuman, founder and CEO, PlanetOne Communications. “It’s an amazing opportunity to start your own company and watch it grow successfully under the leadership and execution of a world-class team and the support of your family and friends. Thank you to the Phoenix Business Journal for recognizing PlanetOne’s success and the success of others in the great state of Arizona.”
Developed by the Phoenix Business Journal, ACE has recognized excellence in private corporations and within individuals in business for more than twenty years. Established in 1992, PlanetOne employs 18 Arizona-based associates and a handful of other team members across the U.S. that support more than 16,000 commercial clients.
As reported by the Phoenix Business Journal, the largest privately-held companies in Arizona generate combined revenue of more than $15 billion per year and employ more than 40,000 workers in the state.
“PlanetOne is proud to be a part of the growth and prosperity of our state, our community and our associates,” said Lauren Shapiro, president, PlanetOne Communications. “Our team, company culture and commitment to excellence and execution are clear differentiators for PlanetOne and key contributors to our continued success in Arizona and across the U.S.”
The ACE award is another marker in PlanetOne’s 2016 record success. Over the last five years alone PlanetOne’s growth has soared to more than 500 percent and its pipeline for 2017 represents some of the company’s largest deals to date. For six consecutive years, PlanetOne has been recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S., and the company is honored time and time again by its Preferred Providers for its overall excellence, operational support and sales performance.
