Joe Chuisano may be new to the position of channel chief, but he's no stranger to channel partners.
A Verizon veteran of more than two decades, Chuisano has been managing a large portion of the carrier's channel portfolio for years. Chuisano was named director of Verizon Business Markets, North America in July, and prior to this role, he served alongside former channel chief Janet Schijns as managing director of Verizon Business Markets.
CRN sat down with Chuisano to hear about the evolution of the Verizon partner program, opportunities around the Internet of Things and SD-WAN, and how the Basking Ridge, N.J.-based carrier is helping solution providers seal those deals. Here's what Chuisano had to say.
