Telarus master agent awarded 2019 channel influencer award SANDY, UT, (March 8, 2019) Telarus is thrilled to announce it has been named a 2019 Channel Influencer Award winner by Channel Partners and Channel Futures. With this award, Channel Partners recognizes the people, technologies, trends and organizations that will shape the new channel in 2019.

Telarus was cited as one of 25 organizations to watch for their roles in mapping the direction of the new channel.

“Wow – what an honor,” said Patrick Oborn, Telarus co-founder and VP of partner experience. “We are pleased to be named as one of the top organizations to watch in 2019.”

One way Telarus is shaping the future of the channel is through the formation of their specialty teams. These teams provide expertise and experience for partners and are helping them win big deals. Josh Lupresto, Telarus VP of engineering and his team work with partners to help them design complex security, SD-Wan, hosted, and network solutions – white-labeled as a member of their team. Paul McGuire, Telarus VP of sales operations – AT&T, recently helped a partner close a $500,000 AT&T security deal and Ray Hicken, Telarus VP of sales operations – CCaaS and UCaaS, helped a partner close a contract with a company in the financial services industry for $284,000 monthly recurring revenue.

“Our editorial team pored over the most intriguing and significant stories from last year to identify who and what they expect to make the biggest impact on the new channel in the year ahead,” said Lorna Garey, editor-in-chief of Channel Partners and Channel Futures. “These winners reflect the wide spectrum of partner types, technologies and companies we cover daily, and they’re all names you can expect to be hearing a lot moving forward.”

All 55 of the 2019 winners are profiled in a digital publication available for download from the Channel Partners website.
