Telecom services distributor Telarus Inc. announced it has hired Zane Christensen to serve as chief financial officer.
Christensen comes to Telarus with more than 20 years of experience in a variety of industries, including software, technology, manufacturing, financial services, and others. Notably, he spent more than 13 years at First Data Corp., first as senior director of finance and then vice president of finance. He also had an eight-year stint at Arthur Anderson. He has a master degree in accounting from Brigham Young University.
As CFO, Christensen will oversee partner compensation, supplier compensation, employee compensation, budgeting and forecasting.
"I'm thrilled that Zane has joined Telarus as our CFO," said Telarus President Adam Edwards. “Zane has the experience we wanted in a CFO, but more important to me is his integrity and culture. Our partners should know there's one more person at Telarus working hard to make them successful."
Christensen is the second C-level executive hired by Telarus in the past 90 days. The company tapped David Bashford as COO and general counsel in October.
“We are excited to have Zane on board to work with David, Adam, and the rest of the Telarus executive team," said Telarus co-founcer Patrick Oborn. “Expect new and unique improvements to our program guided by the hands of our new leadership team."
