Our tagline – Independence. No Limits. – is not about us. It is a pledge to our Sales Partners: We promise our Sales Partners the freedom and independence to achieve an unlimited income. As our first two Agents in 1994, our co-founders Rick Dellar and Rick Sheldon shared a core belief that Intelisys could provide top-producing industry professionals with the independence and unlimited income that they desired. That same belief holds true today – and it is behind every decision we make and every strategy we implement.
