TelePacific Communications kicked off 2010 with agent appreciation events in San Diego, the Bay Area and Los Angeles. The three events, held the first week of February, brought Telepartners together for cocktails, networking and short presentations from TelePacific executives. The 2009 President’s Club honorees were also unveiled at the events.

There are seven President’s Club honorees for 2009:

“The President’s Club was expanded this year from five honorees to seven since the competition amongst our agent community was tighter than ever. We decided to expand our honoree group to acknowledge all of the top-producing agents who made large contributions to TelePacific’s success in 2009,” said Bisnoff. “This program is just one of the ways we recognize our outstanding partners. We look forward to working with all of our Telepartners to make 2010 another successful year.”

“We continue to recommend TelePacific to our customers because the company offers a reliable product with accurate billing and great support at every stage of the customer experience,” said Dominic Antonini, president of Telcombrokers, another 2009 President’s Club honoree.
