At the same time, we updated and added content to our new Web site to better communicate our services to those who are less familiar with us.”The decision to rebrand the Team Alliance program is based on KMM’s customers evolving requirements. “We were primarily using the Team Alliance program as a framework to bring in and mentor small, certified diversity enterprises within our operations,” said John Campanelli, president of KMM business operations. “However, as our customers’ needs have continued to evolve, and as our portfolio of customers has grown, we’ve expanded the program to include other types of companies that are the best-of-the-best in their respective fields.
