Telecom master agency (TCG) has announced multiple hires and suppliers over the past few weeks.
Despite a pandemic-related recession that has seen massive layoffs across many industries, the Florida-based company is bringing on new personnel and investing in new vendors.
TCG’s Brandon Baker
For one, TCG announced it hired Brandon Baker as its new national channel manager. Baker said in a LinkedIn post that he’ll use his 12 years of IT/telecommunications experience to help partners build revenue.
“As your TCG channel manager, I am very responsive as I know how important deals are to you, your company and the satisfaction of your client,” Baker said.
Baker worked almost seven years at Comcast Business in a variety of positions. He also founded Ignite Technology, an agency that sold cloud and telecom solutions. He most recently worked at OnCloud.

The master agency has added several new suppliers in 2020. Most recently the company announced a partnership with Sky Data Vault, which offers business managed disaster recovery as a service and backup as a service.
