Telarus master agent hires bob greenoughFormer Star2Star Solutions Engineer to help Telarus sales partners in the Southeast design, present, and close complex cloud communication opportunities

Telarus, LLC., master agent of business cloud infrastructure and contact center services, today announced it had hired industry-veteran, Robert Greenough of Tampa, Florida, as its new cloud sales engineer of the Southeast. In this role, Greenough will help sales partners design, present, and close unified communication, contact center, and cybersecurity solutions, all under the partner’s brand. Greenough comes to Telarus with four years of experience at Star2Star where he supported channel partners, helping them design and close large UCaaS deals.

“We are excited to welcome Robert to the cloud sales engineering group,” said Josh Lupresto, VP of sales engineering for Telarus. “Everyone who knows Robert knows he is an all-star in the UCaaS industry. With over 16 years of experience in IT and UCaaS, he’ll hit the ground running with our existing partner community in the southeast. 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, Greenough has held essential roles within the channel and in IT. He was a senior solution architect for Star2Star Communications during which time Robert developed a reputation for his responsiveness, building successful teams, and always doing the right things for his partners.

“Like everyone else, I’ve been watching Telarus grow, and now I am proud to join their cloud engineering team,” said Greenough. “Telarus has shown its commitment to UCaaS sales by purchasing VXSuite – to monitor the entire UCaaS experience – and by continuing to add to its cloud engineering team. Josh and his team have helped partners achieve a ton of success in recent years, 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 Unified Communications matrix that it just launched in June at Partner Exchange. I’ll focus on using these tools, and my own experience, to help our partners close the huge and exciting deals in ways our competition can’t or won’t.”
