Global Telecom Solutions (GTS) celebrates 8th Annual Open House
By: Global Telecom Solutions
More than 200 people from over 100 different companies took part in the open house, which included technology exhibits and several industry awards presented by GTS to its partners. GTS's own CEO, Mark Stackpoole, served as this year's keynote speaker.
This is the second time the DAC has hosted the annual event, that brings together "cloud," connectivity and cybersecurity providers from across the nation. Now in its 8th year, the open house is centered on networking and business development for the GTS sales partner community.
During the open house, which draws many in-person charity donations, Detroit-based GTS announced $20,000 in donations to two area nonprofits. This year Camp Casey, located in Farmington Hills, Mich., received $10,000 while Alternatives for Girls (https://alternativesforgirls.org/
"I am absolutely blown away by the support GTS has shown Camp Casey over the years," says Molly Reeser, Camp Casey's Founder/Executive Director. "Though our program numbers continue to grow -- we're serving more kids than ever before! -- with GTS's help we've been able to stay in the saddle and will not have to turn down a single applicant!"
"With GTS's support, AFG can continue to expand and strengthen critical programming that is an investment in the girls and young women we serve," said Cecile Aitchison, Chief Development Officer of Alternatives For Girls. "AFG's services are unique in providing long-term, individually responsive support to those that seek our services, and our partners like GTS help us make an even larger impact."

The open house also honors technology providers for their work over the past year. This year the Channel Manager of the Year went to John Komos at Vonage (https://www.vonage.com/

"It's so exciting to see everyone at this event every year," said Mark Stackpoole, GTS CEO. "Talking about trends and connecting with other professionals in technology is always eye-opening. We're already looking forward to next year's open house!"
