WASHINGTON, April 28, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) congratulates Comcast Cable for its selection of Pinnacle Technical Resources to administer its Managed Services Program.
Pinnacle, a leading provider of workforce management solutions, has been selected alongside Randstad, a global talent leader, to oversee Comcast's Managed Services Program (MSP). Pinnacle will operate as one with Randstad, to deliver world-class business solutions to Comcast.
As the nation's largest video, high-speed Internet and phone provider to residential customers, Comcast Cable is shaping the future of media and technology. To meet client demands, the company employs a growing workforce of qualified professionals, which it supplements with contingent workers and managed services. Pinnacle will support Comcast Cable's continuous drive for innovation in talent acquisition and help Comcast Cable deliver superior products and services to its customers.
"We congratulate Pinnacle on signing this landmark contract, and applaud Comcast Cable as a standard-bearer in the industry, and for thinking strategically about diversity and inclusion in their selection of business partners. These issues are critically important to our organization, to Comcast, and to the long-term competitiveness of America's business community," said USHCC President & CEO Javier Palomarez. "We commend Comcast for engaging dynamic companies, like Pinnacle, not because they are Hispanic or women-owned, but because they are simply the best in the business."
Pinnacle CEO Nina Vaca said: "All of us at Pinnacle are delighted by the opportunity for transformative growth which this partnership represents. Opportunities of this scale are critical to companies like ours, and help build truly formidable enterprises in every sector. Our team works tirelessly to ensure the success of our clients, and looks forward to a long-term, productive collaboration."
"Comcast is thrilled to have Pinnacle Technical Resources on board," said Peter Kiriacoulacos, chief procurement officer for Comcast and NBCUniversal. "In addition to being a meaningful contribution to our supplier diversity efforts, this new strategic partnership will enhance our workforce acquisition and management process, all while promoting cost efficiency and innovation."
This strategic partnership is a testament to Pinnacle's excellent business record, and on a national level, will illustrate the many competitive advantages major U.S. corporations stand to gain through partnering with Hispanic-owned firms – the nation's fastest growing entrepreneurial segment.
