Master Agent Makes Roster Moves
A key component to a firm’s success is putting the proper pieces in place for today, while building for a prosperous tomorrow. Telarus (News - Alert) is an international master agent that provides agents, MSPs, VARs and solution providers with the opportunity for revenue in the form of voice and data WAN solutions. And this week, announced its newest team member, Jay Littleford.
“We are excited to welcome Jay Littleford to our team,” says Doug Tolley, SVP of sales for Telarus. “Jay is a seasoned veteran who understands how to attract top-selling partners and help them develop strategies to grow their business.”
Littleford joins the Telarus team as Regional Vice President of California, and is tasked with field recruiting responsibilities in addition to supporting Telarus partner support in the Golden State.
Tolley continued, “From his time at both Level 3 and Windstream (News - Alert), we have been able to see first-hand how effective he is on sales performance as a result of his relentless focus on partner satisfaction. That, combined with his brilliant technical understanding of the products we sell, will be a huge asset for our partners in California.”
The seasoned veteran touts a record of revenue building, initially ‘cutting his teeth’ as a channel manager for CenturyLink (News - Alert) and over the course of his 16 year career created the reputation as one capable of supporting and helping agents expand their business.
“Jay fits perfectly into the Telarus culture that is dedicated to helping partners win big deals,” added Adam Edwards, co-founder and CEO of Telarus. “He is a person who can consult with partners on such things as network design, carrier selection, cloud strategies, and help them present their solutions to their customers. Jay supported Telarus partners during his time at Level 3 and Windstream, creating a large fan base of agents. Now he will be able to support them for any supplier, for any solution, including cloud, call center solutions, data center, hosted PBX (News - Alert), and our VXSuite monitoring software – helping our partners see what others can’t. We are excited to have Jay on our team.”
Littleford officially took the role over on May 31, and is the seventh such regional vice president named over the past two years. With a winning roster in place, the master agent means business.
