telarus master agent inc 5000 Specialty practices, unique software tools, account management, and an expanded field presence have earned Telarus a place in an elite group of companies who have been named to the 2018 Inc. 5000

SANDY, Utah, Aug 24, 2018 – Telarus, LLC., master agent of business cloud infrastructure and contact center services, today announced it announced that it has again been ranked by Inc. magazine as one of the nation’s fastest growing private companies, as part of the 37th Annual Inc. 5000 list. This is the second year in a row that Telarus has earned a spot on the prestigious list.

“We are honored to be named to the Inc. 5000 for the second year in a row,” said Adam Edwards, CEO of Telarus. “Not only does this place us in an elite group of private companies, it validates our ‘Built for You’ strategy where we reinvest significant dollars back into the business, building software and hiring specialty practice leaders that make our agent partners better, faster, and more efficient than they would be on their own or with another master agent.”

Telarus is a leading master agency, or technology services distributor, offering 175 network and cloud service providers. The 4,000-member Telarus partner community leverages Telarus pricing tools and contracts to place orders for major brands like Alibaba Cloud, Comcast, CenturyLink, Ring Central, 8×8, Rackspace, Vonage Business, Nextiva, Spectrum Enterprise, 365 Data Centers, Cox Communications, Connect First, Office Depot, Talkdesk, NICE inContact, ViaSat, Granite, and others, earning a residual commission for the life of the accounts.

“The 2018 recognition we’re receiving is a result of the hard work of both the Telarus and legacy CarrierSales teams that came together late last year,” added Richard Murray, COO of Telarus. “Both companies have been focused on partner success, the primary ingredient to our top-line growth. We’ve known all along that unique software tools, customer account management, partner financing, free circuit monitoring, and other value-adds would help us scale, and now with our expanded field team and specialty groups in place, we’ve finally started to see the rapid growth we always knew was coming. 156% growth in just three years is really a starting point for us; we’re expanding into Australia, Canada, and many other U.S. cities with the message of ‘cloud brokering works’ if you have a bench of seasoned sales engineering behind you. We are committed to staying on top of our growth and continuing to deliver a world-class partner experience along the way.”

Not only have the companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2018 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 538.2 percent, and a median rate of 171.8 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $206.1 billion in 2017, accounting for 664,095 jobs over the past three years.

“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “The lines of business may come and go or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”
