Sandy, UT, January 3, 2022 

Telarus, a leading Technology Solutions Brokerage of Cloud, Cybersecurity Unified Communications, Contact Center, IoT and Mobility, and Network Services, announced today that its CRO, Dan Foster, has joined the Channel Development Advisory Council of CompTIA, the nonprofit association for the IT industry and workforce.   

Foster is new to the CompTIA board, but the industry veteran will jump in feet-first to provide perspective from the Brokerage point of view. The perspective he brings from his experience both from the brokerage and supplier side is invaluable.  

“With the breadth of his experience in our industry, Dan is a strong addition to our Channel Development Advisory Council,” said Annette Taber, CompTIA’s senior vice president for industry and public sector outreach. “His insights into the business of technology – how it is developed, marketed, purchased, and deployed – will help guide the actions we take as an advisory council, an association, and an industry.” 

“Serving as a member of the CompTIA Channel Development Advisory Council is an honor and a learning experience. I am thrilled to serve with passionate colleagues who are interested in moving the Channel forward,” said Dan. 

The Channel Development Advisory Council provides counsel and insight in all matters relating to the indirect technology market. The board is comprised of some of the industry’s most influential leaders, representing hardware manufacturers, software publishers, services organizations, brokerages, distributors, telecommunications companies, and technology solution providers.  

In addition, the Council collaborates with CompTIA’s other industry advisory councils to advance the adoption of SaaS-based business applications, drone services, blockchain, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, and internet of things technologies. Together, they work to: 

  • Identify relevant industry trends that open new business opportunities for the channel. 
  • Refine industry best practice standards. 
  • Foster greater adoption and expansion of emerging technologies. 

The Council leverages its collective members’ tremendous expertise and experience to develop educational programs, business tools, and other resources to promote the business value the technology channel brings to the tech industry.
