Carol Thelen

“I have 26 years’ experience in telecom working with telephone equipment and wireline services. I attended Lansing Community College in the 80’s and began my telecom career working for a PBX and Long Distance service provider as a CSR/Project Manager/Sales for over eight years. In 1999, I began working as a Project Manager in the CLEC Industry for over 18 years. 

I project managed customers and their vendors, new or migrating, with their Voice; VoIP; Internet; MPLS; Data Circuits; or PBX systems.  I have extensive knowledge in auditing, working with ILEC’s, and Fiber Optics.

I came to CBI on April 11, 2016 to utilize my abilities to become a customer advocate on telecommunication systems and expenses.”

Tracey Booth

“I came onto the CBI team as a Director of Business Development three months ago. I have fourteen years’ experience in the technology industry and currently hold a Bachelor’s degree in Sales and Marketing. Through my fourteen years I have gained a strong background in fiber, cell tower back haul, project management, basic telephony, SIP, VOIP, MPLS networks.

In my past lives I worked with CBI when responding to RFP’s while working for various telecom vendors. I was always impressed with the level of trust and respect their clients displayed for CBI. Over the years I developed a personal friendship with Denise, so when the opportunity to work in business development with Enterprise clients was offered it was an obvious perfect fit. It’s non-stop excitement, fun and everything I hoped it would be! Looking forward to being part of the team that propels CBI into the top 3 TEM companies in the world!

In my free time I enjoy golfing, cooking, reading, and spending time with my family.”

Opening new office

For 24 years CBI has been serving clients nationally and internationally. Based out of Grand Rapids Michigan CBI has become a leading industry expert in telecom expense management. Their partnership with A&B Groep, based in the Netherlands, puts both companies at the forefront as a truly global telecom expense management firm.

In June CBI will expand its reach here in the U.S. by opening an office in The Research Triangle in North Carolina. The expansion is largely due to the launch of GTEM Solutions, our SaaS TEM solution. GTEM is a proprietary software developed jointly by CBI and A&B Groep.

Both companies are excited by the ongoing partnership and the ability it gives both organizations to serve their clients "On a GLOBAL scale, but at a LOCAL level.
