Telesystem Announces New Elite Agent Partnership with TBI

TOLEDO, OHIO – February 13, 2018. Telesystem, a nationwide voice, data, and secure internet provider, is proud to announce their partnership with master agency, TBI. TBI joins a group of eight existing Telesystem Elite Agents who are paid at the top residual and bonus levels. 

“Telesystem brings a unique offering to TBI partners, not just in being the MSO for particular areas throughout the country, but also focusing on secure internet, namely DDoS mitigation,” said Mike Onystok, TBI’s Vice President of Omni Center Sales, Training and Marketing. “They are a cost-efficient solution as they include a proactive DDoS protection service on each purchased data circuit. A unique differentiator for sure, and another great choice for hosted voice, voice products and data services. We’re excited to bring them into the TBI portfolio.”


The addition of TBI to the Telesystem Partner Program as an Elite Agent provides unique opportunities for both teams.

“TBI not only brings us the addition of thousands of partners nationwide, but their focus on accountability, agent development, and selling on focused value propositions closely aligns with the Telesystem culture,” said Bruce Wirt, Vice President of Channel Sales at Telesystem.  “I have a lot of respect for the organization that Geoff [Shepstone] has built, and the evolution of the TBI sales environment that closely matches providers to opportunities based on value propositions.  I have no doubt that our security and aggregation offerings will play very well in the TBI portfolio.”

Telesytem and TBI kick off their partnership with a Telesystem sponsored TBI Regional Impact in Tampa, Florida on March 29, 2018. Telesystem will also be sending the top earning TBI partners from 2019 on a President’s Club Trip in early 2019.
