Telarus, master agent of business data, voice, cloud, and data center services, today announced it had hired industry-veteran Scott Forbush as its new SVP of Sales. As the newest member of the Telarus senior leadership team, Forbush will be responsible for working with Telarus regional vice presidents and senior partner managers in the field as they endeavor to build awareness of Telarus’ patented tools, unique pre-and-post sale resources, and strategic lead generation programs to expand their Cloud, UCaaS, and SD-WAN practices. The dynamic and well-respected Forbush comes to Telarus with more than twelve years of channel sales and leadership experience at Telesphere, Integra/ELI and Zayo.
“We are so excited to welcome Scott to our senior leadership team,” said Adam Edwards, CEO of Telarus. “Scott is a seasoned industry veteran who has admirably served as channel chief for some very prominent providers. He is well-liked and respected in the Channel because he understands first-hand how to attract and develop top-selling partners. In his prior roles, we’ve experienced first-hand his passion for agent success and his unique ability to help his team exceed their growth targets. His proactive, down-to-earth leadership style, attention to detail, and thorough understanding of today’s communication technology set him apart from his peers. He’ll be a huge asset for our partners, employees, and suppliers.”
During his career with Telesphere, Integra/ELI, and Zayo, Forbush has held several key roles within direct and indirect channels, including general manager, director of sales engineering, and most recently, VP of indirect sales. In this capacity, Forbush lead his sales teams to consistently attain their revenue targets and garnered many awards in the process. In 2015, under the Forbush’s leadership, Integra was voted the Top Supplier by the Telarus agent partner community.
“During my career, I’ve had a front row seat to the rise of the telecom and cloud channel community,” said Forbush, SVP of sales for Telarus. “I’ve worked with every master agent in this industry, and I’ve witnessed first-hand the power shifting in their favor as they build up their collective books of business selling voice, data, and cloud services. I can’t tell you how excited I am to transition to this side of the business working for Telarus — without question the fastest-growing, most forward-thinking master agency in the industry. Telarus has a stellar reputation for being an honest, down-to-earth, reliable organization that continues to innovate by creating new software tools and resources for the sole benefit of its partners. As we look to the future I look forward to leveraging my leadership skills, technical knowledge, and industry relationships to benefit my sales team and to help this company continue to scale.”
