Telarus is owned by Adam Edwards, Patrick Oborn, and Richard Murray, with investment from Columbia Capital. Telarus was created in Huntington Beach, CA, in 2002 by both Adam and Patrick.
They bootstrapped the company from savings and commissions they earned as Commission River online affiliates. Telarus first consisted of Patrick Oborn generating leads with ShopforT1.com and Adam Edwards making sales from the steady stream of new prospects. That early stream of the residual commission was re-invested into channel managers who could support new agents and software developers and employ the services of a patent attorney to assist us with the patent application for GeoQuote, our real-time quoting software.
In October 2017, Telarus acquired CarrierSales, a competitor in the technology solutions brokerage space, to create the country’s largest privately-held technology solutions brokerage. Columbia’s investment in Telarus has fueled its continued growth as it expands its lead as the largest privately-held technology solutions brokerage.
Telarus’ existing management team continues to lead and maintain a majority stake in the company.

”I needed resources, people with integrity, and people with experience. Telarus wants to see me succeed and the amount of support around me is really overwhelming. If I don't succeed, it's because of me, not because Telarus didn't give me the support I needed to succeed. It's like going into battle by yourself, or going into battle with an entire team with different expertise behind you; by yourself, you wouldn't last very long.Elan CraneWheelhouse Virtual Solutions
”When I chose Telarus as my partner, it was because of their knowledge in the industry and their relationships. I help customers get off premise and onto cloud. It's the experience and selections that Telarus comes to the table with that allows me to put together real solutions. Then they support me and make me look better.Jill BlankenshipCEO at Frontline Group LLC
