Former Windstream channel manager to lead recruiting efforts and help the master agent’s sales partners in Southern California grow their unified communications, cybersecurity, and contact center practices

Telarus, LLC., master agent of business data, voice, mobility, cybersecurity, and contact center services, today announced it had hired industry-veteran, Molly Lozano, as its new senior partner development manager (SPDM) of Southern California. In this role, Lozano will help existing Telarus channel partners expand their data, voice, cloud, and contact center practices, as well as recruit new companies interested in leveraging the many free resources Telarus has to offer. Lozano comes to Telarus after 17-years at many of the industry’s top providers: Windstream, TelePacific, XO, and Ernest (now Fusion Connect), where she helped sales partners in California grow their cloud, UC, and network services businesses.

“We are excited to welcome Molly as our new senior partner development manager of Southern California,” said Mike Bettilyon, Area VP of the West for Telarus. “We have known Molly during her very successful career and are a huge fan of her work. She knows this business, she knows who the players are, and most of all, she knows the value Telarus brings to our partners. Molly has also moonlighted as a business coach, setting her apart in this field. Best of all, Molly is highly responsive, knowledgeable about UC – our fastest growing product line – and has a track record of overachievement. She’ll be focused on getting our valued partners in the San Diego and Los Angeles areas the education and resources they need to expand into the fastest-growing areas of technology brokerage: cybersecurity and cloud contact center.”

During her very successful career, Lozano has held several roles within the channel. She was a partner channel manager at Windstream for the past three years, and before that she managed partners for TelePacific, Pac West, XO, and Ernest. During her time at these companies, Lozano developed a reputation for responsiveness, building successful teams, and always doing the right things for her partners.

“With over 15 years of working with Telarus partners in a channel management capacity, I can honestly say that I am proud to join their field sales team as the senior partner development manager in Southern California,” said Lozano. “With Telarus’ acquisitions of CarrierSales and VXSuite, the amount of expertise they have in cybersecurity, contact center, mobility, colo, and the cloud is unparalleled. Add to that Telarus’ patented real-time quoting system, fiber map lookup app for iPhone, free network monitoring, hosted voice monitoring, UCaaS, and SD-WAN product matrices, and demand generation technology, and I’ll have plenty to talk about when I meet with new and existing partners in Los Angeles, Orange, and San Diego counties.  I have already met many Telarus partners during my tenure at Windstream and Ernest and am very excited to help them unleash their growth potential using all the 200 providers in our portfolio. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to help my partners expand beyond their traditional product lines, so they can benefit from the opportunities that Cloud represents.”
