Former Serenova channel sales director to lead the company’s recruiting efforts and help existing Telarus sales partners in Northern California become Trusted Advisors of cloud, unified communications, cybersecurity, and contact center-as-a-service

March 6, 2020
Telarus, LLC., master agent and largest private-held distributor of business cloud infrastructure and contact center services in the world, today announced it had hired industry-veteran Taylor Klevins as its new senior partner development manager (SPDM) of Northern California. In this role, Klevins will help existing Telarus channel partners expand their digital edge, hybrid cloud, gig-speed network, SD-WAN, UCaaS, CCaaS, and cybersecurity practices. She will also be tasked with recruiting new firms interested in earning residual commissions by leveraging their suite of 250 service providers and award-winning value-added resources Telarus offers exclusively to its agents. Klevins comes to Telarus after ten years supporting channel partners in the west for two of the industry’s top brands: Serenova and Intelisys.

“We are super excited to welcome Taylor as our new senior partner development manager of Northern California,” said Mike Bettilyon, area VP of the West for Telarus. “Taylor has a great reputation for supporting partners at a very high level, she knows advanced services like contact center (CCaaS) from first-hand experience, and she understands what top partners need to be successful. We’re eager to see her continue to focus on helping her partners connect with our unique advanced business teams that are dedicated to strategizing directly with our agents’ customers and helping them find success in the fastest-growing areas of technology brokerage: cybersecurity and cloud contact center. The partners who worked with her at both Serenova and Intelisys give her glowing reviews, and we’re excited for her to work her magic for Telarus’ partners going forward. We have full confidence Taylor will be another all-star on our West Area field sales team!”

During her very successful career, Klevins has held several roles in the channel: she was a channel sales director at leading CCaaS provider, Serenova.  She also spent nine years as a partner experience manager for master agent, Intelisys. During her time at these companies, Klevins developed a reputation for responsiveness, technical knowledge, and always going above and beyond for the sales partners under her care.

“I am thrilled to join Telarus and to be part of their growing and successful partner ecosystem,” said Taylor Klevins, SPDM of Northern California for Telarus. “I’m eager to share my knowledge and experience to benefit our sales partners in the Bay Area, Sacramento, and everywhere in between. While Telarus has had success here in the past, I feel that the market is ready and primed for a master agent that adds expert-level technical overlays, revolutionary financial programs, marketing/lead-gen assistance, post-sales support teams, and a rock-solid back office. Others may have pieces of this model, but none have been able to bring them all to bear for the benefit of their channel like Telarus. Second, the best sales partners in Northern California are relationship-driven and expect you to perform when called upon. Telarus has an 18-year track record of continually investing – and re-investing – in patented research tools and expertise that partners have come to rely on. This is especially true with advanced products, like cloud and cybersecurity, that many agents aren’t totally comfortable with just yet. I’m excited to help change that, and to continue executing on the company’s vision of unlocking huge opportunities with the industry’s top producers and helping them reach the status of Trusted Advisor.”
