MCLEAN, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kajeet®, a leading provider of wireless connectivity, software and hardware solutions that deliver secure, reliable, and managed IoT solutions to over 3,000 businesses, schools and districts, and state and local governments, today announced its selection as the 2021 Public Sector Partner of the Year by Cradlepoint, a global leader in wireless WAN business solutions.
“We’re honored by this recognition from Cradlepoint,” said Michael Flood, senior vice president and general manager of public sector at Kajeet. “Expanding our focus to include the public sector is a natural evolution for Kajeet, and it allows us to continue our mission of ‘Connections for Good.’ With our deep roots in education, we look forward to continuing our expansion within the public sector, including local, state, and federal agencies, housing authorities, and libraries to optimize and enhance connectivity.”
Cradlepoint selected Kajeet as its 2021 Public Sector Partner of the Year for Kajeet’s outstanding performance, commitment to customers and significant achievements as a reseller. Kajeet recently furthered its public sector commitment by reorganizing internally, which served to align key executive positions with the needs of its public sector customers. In addition to an expanded title for Flood, who is an expert in education solutions and previously served in leadership roles at AT&T and Sprint-Nextel, Kajeet recently hired Chris Felix as vice president of sales, public sector. Felix brings more than 30 years of telecommunications experience to his new role at Kajeet, and previously served as vice president and general manager of government solutions at Sprint as well as regional president of Verizon’s upstate New York region.
“We have products and partners serving the public sector today, helping to keep up with the changing demands of connectivity, and many of our purchasing partners offer special pricing options for both education and government,” said Flood. “Cradlepoint’s recognition underscores our mission to bring connectivity solutions to more public sector entities.”
