I see many possibilities ahead in our future together because of the strong set of core values we share. Velocity Global and I both place tremendous value on the relationships that we build with people on a daily basis. This partnership will open up new opportunities for the communities we serve and help differentiate Velocity Global in the global expansion space.”
To begin the new year, Velocity Global launched its new “People First” brand campaign. Ryan Medine, VP of Marketing, shares, “We are additionally excited to launch our new brand campaign that emphasizes the need for a blend of technology and human collaboration to create a superior global expansion experience. We admire how Billy uses his strong personal relationships to positively impact the lives of others through his hands-on approach to his charitable initiatives. Billy and his team are passionate about growing his global business and finding the right partners with a relentless drive to beat the competition on and off the course.”
