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 Brian Wassel as its new senior partner development manager (SPDM) of Chicago. In this role, Wassel will help existing Telarus channel partners expand their digital edge, hybrid Cloud, gig-speed network, SD-WAN, UCaaS, CCaaS, IoT, and Cybersecurity practices.

He 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. Wassel comes to Telarus after many years of supporting and working within the channel.

“We are excited to welcome Brian as our new Senior Partner Development Manager of Chicago,” said Dan Foster, Chief Revenue Officer for Telarus. “Brian came very highly recommended by our partners and his previous employer, Vonage. He knows this business, he knows who the players are, and most of all, he knows the value Telarus brings to our partners. He’ll be focusing on getting our valued partners in Chicago the education and resources they need to expand into the fastest-growing areas in telecommunications. Chicago has always been a strong partner market for us, and with Brian’s help, it will get even stronger”.
