There’s a new face at Telarus, but he’s not unfamiliar to the channel.
Mike Bettilyon takes over as the master agent’s regional sales director for the Mountain West. He’ll be tasked with recruiting new partners and helping existing Telarus partners expand their businesses.
Bettilyon’s coverage area will include Utah, Colorado, Arizona, Nevada, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska and the Dakotas. He has 25 years of experience that includes stints at Windstream, Comcast Business, Lightstream and CenturyLink. He’s worked on both the direct and channel sides of sales.
“We have known Mike for long time and have been an admirer of his skills and ability to build long-lasting relationships with our partners,” said Adam Edwards, co-founder and CEO of Telarus. “We have seen first-hand his effect on sales performance as a result of his relentless focus on partner satisfaction. That, combined with his brilliant technical understanding of the products we sell, will be a huge asset for our partners in the Mountain West.”
“Mike supported Telarus partners during his time at Windstream, creating a large fan base of partners,” added Patrick Oborn, co-founder of Telarus. “Now he will be able to support them for any supplier, for any solution, including cloud, call-center solutions, data center, and hosted PBX – helping our partners see what others can’t.”
