complete communications award with Telarus Leading sales agency and trusted advisor to hundreds of companies worldwide becomes second Telarus sales partner to surpass $1M in aggregate monthly billing of technology services 

January 15, 2020 – Telarus, LLC., master agent and largest private-held distributor of business cloud infrastructure and contact center services, today announced that Complete Communications, a telecom sales agency headquartered in Murray, Utah, has reached a new milestone in its growth: $1M in aggregate monthly spend with Telarus’ suite of communication providers. The achievement moves Complete Communications from Emerald into the new Sapphire Tier in the Telarus Partner Rewards Program, earning them even more rewards points per sale in 2020. 

“Today, we publicly congratulate and recognize our friends at Complete Communications on this massive accomplishment,” said Adam Edwards, CEO of Telarus. “Blake Darling, Mark Anderson, and Kendall Schmidt called their shot back in 2011, when they signed up with Telarus, that they’d join the million-dollar club. With consistent hard work, by developing new and unique ROI software tools that help their customers understand the economics of moving from legacy point-to-points and MPLS into a new broadband/SD-WAN solution, and by assembling a rock-star project management team, here we are just eight years later celebrating this huge accomplishment. We thoroughly enjoy working closely with the Complete Communications team and want our suppliers and their future customers to know what a great organization they are to work with. We look forward to many more years of success, and to celebrating the $2M mark soon.” 

 Blake Darling founded Complete Communications in 2002. Within a couple year he was joined by Mark Anderson and Kendall Schmidt and they focused on business internet and voice consulting. They began working with Telarus in 2013 and earned the Top Sales Partner Award that year. Complete Communications repeated as the Top Telarus Sales Partner again in 2016, beating out many of the nation’s larger and more established trusted advisors in the process. Complete Communications has also been in the Telarus Top 10 in each of the past seven years selling leading network providers like Nitel, CenturyLink, ACC Business (a division of AT&T), Spectrum Enterprise, Comcast Business, and Verizon, among others. 

 “It’s an honor to reach the million-dollar mark and to earn the rank of Sapphire in the Telarus program,” said Blake Darling, co-founder, and president of Complete Communications. “This accomplishment was made possible by the hard work of my business partners Mark Anderson and Kendall Schmidt, by our team of over 20 employees nationwide, by the support team at Telarus, and by the all-star channel managers who support us each day on the supplier side of the fence. Together, we’ve been able to provide our customers with fantastic outcomes, outcomes in which they dramatically increase their internet speeds, secure their networks, and save enough money in the transition so that they can upgrade other mission-critical infrastructure with Cisco and other leading brands. We also appreciate the many referral partners who work with Complete Communications and recognize that you also share in this amazing accomplishment. Now, we set our sights higher, to help more organizations optimize their global WAN infrastructure, to attract the industry’s top talent, and to continue building the team that will get us to the $2M mark in much less time than it took us to get to $1M.”
