Prior to that J.R. served as a Vice President for TelePacific Communications.  "I have spent much of my career admiring the Intelisys Team and the value they bring to their Sales and Supplier Partners.  I could not be more excited about bringing my years of experience and relationships to this side of the fence to further enhance the Intelisys value proposition," said Cook.

"This is a critical role at a critical time for Intelisys, and J.R. is absolutely the right person for the assignment," said Jay Bradley, Intelisys President.  "J.R. brings the knowledge and experience to really understand the strategic challenges of growth and transformation in the indirect channel, and he will inspire new ideas to help our partners grow," Bradley added.  "We are thrilled to have him."
