PlanetOne announced business growth leader Karie Atwood is now part of the PlanetOne executive team.

In her new role as Vice President of Supplier Management, Atwood  sets the strategy for engaging with PlanetOne’s 300-plus carriers, service providers and equipment suppliers and has her fingers on the pulse of PlanetOne’s MDF playbook and incentives.

She also is responsible for running PlanetOne’s Preferred Provider Program, which grew by 30 percent last year.

“Karie is at the wheel and working across the organization to keep every carrier, provider and supplier engaged with PlanetOne performing at the top of their game, especially our 30-plus Preferred Providers,” said Ted Schuman, founder and CEO, PlanetOne.
