Telarus, LLC., master agent of business unified communications, contact center, mobility, cybersecurity, and network services today announced it had hired industry-veteran, Phillip Hanabergh of New York City, to join the cloud sales engineering team of the Northeast. In this role, Hanabergh will help sales partners design, present, and close unified communication, contact center, and SD-WAN solutions, all under the partner’s brand. Hanabergh comes to Telarus with over eight years of experience at WAVE BCM where he supported New York area channel partners, helping them design and close large network and UCaaS deals.

“We are excited to welcome Phil to the cloud sales engineering group,” said Josh Lupresto, VP of sales engineering for Telarus. “Everyone who knows Phil knows he is an all-star in the SD-WAN and UCaaS industry. With over eight years of experience in network and UCaaS, he’ll hit the ground running with our existing partner community in the Northeast. We also know he’ll have no problem attracting new partners who are focused on growing their UCaaS business with Telarus. His ability to understand the client’s needs, to design the perfect solution, and then to help present that solution directly to the client, white-labeled as the agent, will set him apart in the industry and help our partners look like experts in front of their customers. For us, it’s all about making our partners look good and helping them close deals ‘outside of their weight class.’”

Over his successful career at WAVE BCM, Hanabergh has held essential roles. For the past five years, he was the head of implementation and solution engineering where he oversaw the design and project management of all complex orders including UCaaS, SD-WAN, and MPLS. Before that, Hanabergh served as a project manager and direct sales.  During his eight years are WAVE, Phillip developed a reputation for his responsiveness, building successful teams, and always doing the right things for the WAVE partner community.

“Like everyone else, I’ve been watching Telarus grow, and now I am proud to join their sales engineering team,” said Hanabergh. “Telarus has shown its commitment to UCaaS sales by purchasing VXSuite – to monitor the entire UCaaS experience – and by continuing to add to its sales engineering team. Josh and his team have helped partners achieve a ton of success in recent months, and I look forward to continuing this momentum and helping the department scale. Telarus has built and purchased so many time-saving software tools over the past decade, culminating with the interactive Unified Communications, SD-WAN, and Cyber Security matrices. I’ll be focused on using these tools, and my own experience, to help our partners close the really big and exciting deals here in the Northeast.”

Hanabergh will be meeting with partners at the upcoming Telarus Security and Cloud Bootcamp in Foxboro, Massachusetts on June 6, 2019, and at the Telarus Innovation Conference in New York City on June 18, 2019. To find more information about these events, please go to for more information.
