Telecom Brokerage Inc. has named its 2010 vendor channel manager of the year.
The telecom master agency said on Wednesday that Travis OKeefe, national channel manager for New Edge Networks, received the award. TBI commended OKeefe for excellence in supporting TBIs back-office and subagents.
Without the guidance and support of Travis, TBI would not have been within New Edges Top 10 partners list,” TBI said in a press release.
O’Keefe said he was “humbled” by the recognition.
“TBI truly views the master agent/carrier relationship as a partnership and without that view running through your entire culture, we could not have done as well as we did in 2010,” he told TBI in an e-mail. “I look forward to a spectacular 2011.”
OKeefe now serves as national channel manager of EarthLink Business, which was formed by the ISPs acquisitions of New Edge, Deltacom and One Communications.
TBI, based in Chicago, represents more than 50 communications providers. It specializes in Internet, data, local, long-distance, mobility and managed services.
