CenturyLink is looking for new partners across its Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region by expanding its global channel partner program there.

Key elements of CenturyLink's EMEA Channel Partner program include dedicated account and sales teams, marketing, development, and operational support and maintenance across the entire customer lifecycle.

"The expansion of our Channel Partner Program gives our current North American Partner base direct access to resources in EMEA to better service customers, as well as allows CenturyLink to recruit new partners in the region who can take advantage of our extensive global solutions and network footprint," said CenturyLink's Craig Patterson, vice president, indirect sales, in a prepared statement. "This regional launch underscores our continued commitment to our Partner community and recognizes the critical role the indirect channel plays in enabling our mutual customers to become more digital."
