Master agency Telarus Inc. announced Monday it has hired former Comcast Business sales executive Lanny Gray as its new vice president of business development, with a focus on supplier management.
In his new role, Gray will be responsible for all high-level supplier relationships, including sitting on advisory boards, formulating go-to-market strategies, high-level escalations, strategic marketing initiatives, and new supplier-contract negotiation.
Gray comes to Telarus after four years at Comcast Business, where he served as the director of commercial sales and marketing for the Mountain region, which includes Utah and Arizona. While at Comcast, Gray helped build and manage the local SMB and enterprise fiber sales forces. During his career Gray also has worked for Broadweave (Veracity), American Fiber Systems, Level 3 Communications and XO Communications.
"Having a tenured executive like Lanny leading our cable and fiber strategy and managing supplier relationships at a high level is going to be key for us going forward as we continue to focus on becoming the preeminent distributor of enterprise data, voice, and cloud services," said Telarus President Adam Edwards.
