CHANNEL PARTNERS — Telarus Inc. (Booth 851) has snagged longtime channel veteran Ruth Morford as its national director of strategic partnerships.
Morford comes to the Utah-based master agency from Intelisys and PlanetOne. At Telarus, she steps into a new role created just for VARs and MSPs, who require deeper support than traditional agents. Among her duties, Morford will help these partners with selling and be part of customer account management after the sale.
Meantime, Telarus also announced that it has promoted Stephanie Coleman to director of partner development. She’ll train partners on Telarus products and tools. Coleman started at Telarus last year as a project manager.
“The depth of knowledge and experience brought to Telarus by these two all-stars will bolster the partner experience and fast-track their sales success,” said Trish Kapos, senior vice president of marketing for Telarus. “We see each of their respective roles as keys to our growth strategy.”
