Channel Veterans Join Telesystem Team

Telesystem, a nationwide provider of managed technology solutions, has announced the addition of industry veterans Bryan Cole (left) and Gary Turak as Regional Channel Managers of the Southwest and Midwest markets.

Cole and Turak will be responsible for establishing excellent working relationships with channel partners, helping them to understand the core value behind Telesystem products and services and working with them to drive customer engagements and generate revenue as part of Telesystem’s growth initiatives.

Cole has 14 years of experience in the IT industry with sales experience in network solutions, voice, cybersecurity and data centers. His most recent role as a Senior Cloud Executive was with PhoenixNAP, a prominent data center located in the heart of Phoenix. In addition to his technical skills, Cole’s ability to drive revenue growth through business development strategies and partner sales enablement will be of immense value to Telesystem as it grows brand awareness in the Southwest.

Turak (right) has more than 25 years of channel success helping partners elevate their businesses to the next level. He has spent the last 13 years working with Avaya and Windstream implementing solutions aimed at improving the customer experience. Turak’s leadership, combined with his proven sales acumen, will add value to Telesystem sales partners in the Midwest region looking to expand their supplier portfolios.

Telesystem Director of Channel Sales Carl Katz said, “With Bryan’s many years of technology sales experience, including cybersecurity and network solutions, and Gary’s strong reputation as a trusted advisor with over two decades of successful channel management experience, I am confident these two will make a defining presence in the Southwest and Midwest markets and provide our partners with an additional resource for all of their go-to-market needs.”

Telesystem’s core go-to-market strategy revolves around developing technology solutions for SME organizations that value a trusted layer of expertise, and a managed experience that allows them to focus on their own business rather than vendor management.  It boasts a nationwide low-latency network to offer voice, networking, managed security, and cybersecurity coast to coast.  Strategically, new retail business opportunities are mostly driven through the technology brokerage channel.  Telesystem has umbrella agreements with major Technology firms like Scansource, Telarus, TBI, and Appsmart, among others.
