The acquisition with Comtel Communications will help further secure partnerships, provide an opportunity for growth, and maximize partner earning potential

Sandy, UT – June 16, 2021 – Today, Telarus, LLC., the largest privately-held distributor of business Cloud infrastructure and Contact Center services announced it had acquired Comtel Communications of Richmond, Virginia.

Comtel Communications, a telecom, and technology master agency was founded in 1991 and provided best-in-class solutions and unbiased counsel to a diverse group of small, medium, and enterprise-level businesses through its selling partners. Comtel partners leveraged their access to over 350 national and international providers offering clients solutions to ensure their business goals are met with current and dynamic telecom and technology services.

“We’re thrilled to have the Comtel Communications team join Telarus. Comtel partners joined and stayed with Comtel because of the high integrity and support standards set by Ben and Amy Humphreys,’ said Adam Edwards, Telarus CEO. “We look forward to carrying that legacy into the future.”

“As I reviewed the various options, it became evident that size and sales matter and that we must partner with someone that has scale in the industry. Ultimately, we needed to partner with a leader for sales, contracts, commissions, and resources. Telarus is leading the industry in monthly sales, which gives them an incredible advantage,” said Ben Humphreys, Comtel CEO. “I was particularly impressed by Telarus’ ethics code, which made this decision much easier.”

“This team will grow to the next level through various strategies soon. I hope all the Comtel Communications subagents take advantage of these resources and drive forward with success,” said Humphreys. “The resources Telarus brings to the table are incredible. But, most importantly, they will act as a fiduciary for subagents and ensure payments and commissions are accurate and timely.”

Subagents of Comtel Communications will be serviced by a local Telarus senior partner development manager and an inside team of partner support and cable support managers.
