Bridgepointe’s Kelly O’Neil

Kelly O’Neil, who has been contracting with Bridgepointe for multiple years, accepted the investment from California-based Bridgepointe. Bridgepointe has announced a series of deals with high-performing IT strategists in its partner base to further incentivize them.

“Bridgepointe has offered an unparalleled level of support every step of the way on my journey,” O’Neil said. “In this new relationship with Bridgepointe, I look forward to continuing to grow as they focus on building out a world-class team and tools and become the nation’s leading IT strategy firm.”

O’Neil has been working with Bridgepointe since 2016. O’Neil worked seven years at XO Communications. Her job titles included senior major account manager. She performed similar roles at Time Warner Telecom, Cogent Communications and Allegiance Telecom.

Bridgepointe is deeply committed to the success of all of our strategists as evidenced by each one of these investments.”
