—Jeff Jeansonne, Senior Manager, Business and Commodity Management, Supply Chain at Quantum

It’s a collaborative relationship; we have a partner we can rely on for the technology that our customers need, as well as services that scale to meet the growing demands and challenges our customers face.”

—Brian Reynolds, Co-founder and Managing Partner, CTG Federal

"AHEAD’s partnership with GLM* has helped us grow our business and expand into the areas that we wouldn't have been able to grow into organically. Throughout our partnership, GLM* has been incredibly flexible and helpful and just willing to do whatever it takes to service the customer.”
