ATC Achieves Platinum Partner Status
The creation of the new Cincinnati Bell Business division launches a new era for Cincinnati Bell (NYSE: CBB). Cincinnati Bell Business will be solely focused on providing voice, data and technology services to businesses with less than 100 employees. Of course, ATC has played in this space in Cincinnati for some time, in addition to serving mid-market and enterprise corporations.
Although ATC offers a “solution agnostic” value proposition where it can source over 100 providers, Cincinnati Bell has been a very strong and strategic player in the local market. As a result, ATC has achieved performance milestones for new business, retention and product knowledge. This has led to ATC becoming recognized by Cincinnati Bell Business as the inaugural and only Platinum Partner to date.
“Creating this division (Cincinnati Bell Business) with the leadership Cincinnati Bell has in place is a strong move,” says ATC’s co-founder and managing partner, David Goodwin. “It’s been clear to us for some time now that Cincinnati Bell has been moving in this direction and putting more emphasis on supporting the local SMB. Their Emerge hosted VoIP and metro Ethernet fiber products are already serving this market quite well. It’s nice to see structure and a division formed to specifically support the SMB marketplace. We’re proud to be a Platinum Partner and help Cincinnati Bell Business support this segment.”
Cincinnati Bell recently named Greg Wheeler as senior vice president of small/medium business solutions to lead the division.
“Our new strategy for serving small- to medium-sized businesses marks a significant shift for Cincinnati Bell,” said Greg Wheeler, senior vice president of sales and operations for business markets at Cincinnati Bell Business. “Having ATC as a key Platinum Partner is critical to the successful execution and growth in this space.”
