headshot_2021CHICAGO, IL- TBI, the nation’s leading technology distributor, announces the addition of Cloud Communications Architect, Thea Rasmussen, to further support their growing partner community.

Rasmussen joins TBI after a decade-plus tenure at Channel provider, Vonage. As their Sr. Solutions Engineer, she served on the Enterprise Custom Engineering team, supporting the company’s largest enterprise customers. Prior to working at Vonage, Rasmussen worked for other leading companies within the industry including CenturyLink (now known as Lumen), Telesphere and TDS Metrocom.

Rasmussen joins TBI’s team of solution architects, Tech Gurus, as their Cloud Communications Architect. Within this role, she will focus on providing customer insights on unified solutions such as communications as a service (UCaaS), contact center as a service (CCaaS) and communications platforms as a service (CPaaS).

“I am beyond excited to be joining the TBI family as part of the Tech Gurus team of architects. The Tech Gurus have been beefing up their talent across UCaaS/CCaaS, infrastructure and security for some time now, and I'm honored to be added to the mix. We are prepared to make some waves in the Channel community by enabling our partners to take their practices to the next level. Backed by industry-leading experts in next-gen services, TBI is bullet-proofing our agent's practices by enabling them to sell up the stack and further upmarket. I look forward to being a part of what's next,” said Rasmussen about her new role at TBI.

“I’m super excited to add Thea to an already rockstar lineup of TBI’s Tech Gurus. She brings a strong blend of technical chops and business acumen to better support our Partner’s Cloud Communications needs. Thea is already making a huge impact in such a short time and that will continue as Partners gravitate toward the exceptional service TBI provides,” said TBI’s VP of Emerging Technologies, Anish Patel.

Rasmussen currently resides in the Twin Cities following her time spent in Wisconsin, where she attended the University of Wisconsin – Madison. When she is not working, Rasmussen enjoys spending time with her wife and two kids.
