Meet BendTel’s New General Manager

Meet BendTel’s New General Manager

BendTel, Inc. is proud to announce the promotion of Doug Cox to the position of General Manager. With over 14 years of sales experience in the local telecommunications industry, Cox has served most recently in the role of Sales Manager for BendTel. Cox’s proven track record for helping small start-up companies get off the ground and larger corporations achieve their goals and find cohesiveness has made him a successful leader and valuable asset to BendTel. 

Cox is a sixth-generation Oregonian with deep roots and a third-generation salesman with strong connections. His father was a sales manager for Crown Pacific in Redmond, who later went on to start his own business in wood products, and his grandfather was a sales manager for Brooks-Scanlon in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. Cox himself graduated from Bend High and earned a scholarship to play collegiate football at Concordia University St. Paul where he went on to receive a degree in Business Management and Marketing. Cox is thrilled that he and his wife can raise their four children here in Central Oregon, making them seventh-generation Oregonians! 

As General Manager, Cox is excited to establish and maintain effective relationships across all departments to help maximize and further develop BendTel’s fiber-optic infrastructure. Through strategic planning and reinvesting revenues, the expansion of BendTel’s fiber-optic footprint will continue throughout Bend and other areas in Central Oregon including; Redmond, Sisters, Prineville and Madras. 

Cox is proud to work for a company that has a “distinct advantage” in the industry as the only locally owned and operated business telephone & Internet provider in Central Oregon. “This unencumbered freedom allows BendTel to stay at the forefront of cutting-edge technology while maintaining affordable rates for our customers,” says Cox. BendTel has engineered and deployed their flag-ship “Carrier Grade” fiber Internet product and delivers the latest generation of cloud-based VoIP phone services. BendTel also provides interconnect services with cable and wiring for new construction and building upgrades.
