LSI, a division of Telesystem, has hired Robert Velazquez to serve as a regional channel manager in south Florida.
Velazquez joins LSI after spending most of the last 16 years as a producer at Windstream. He will be responsible for working with existing master agents to recruit new agents, and will serve as a local technical resource for partners in the central and south Florida markets. LSI has six elite partners in its national master agent program.
“I’m excited to start educating the south Florida market with our products and services,” he said. “Having secure internet as a service is a game changer, and I look forward to building the LSI Telesystem brand in this market.”
LSI is a full-service, integrated communications provider serving the national and international markets across its platform of voice, data and cloud services.
“I am extremely excited about the opportunity that exists for us in Florida, and Robert’s creative and entrepreneurial mind made him the ideal candidate for our launch there,” said Bruce Wirt, Telesystem’s vice president of channel sales. “His long track record of success was merely icing on the cake. Robert’s addition will help to launch the LSI Telesystem brand in South Florida. He has strong relationships with many channel partners, most notably national master agent TCG, and is an active member of several technology committees and groups in the greater Miami area.”
