My career has been spent in telecom from corporate America to entrepreneurial companies. I worked to help create the first channel sales department at US West in 1984. Then after receiving my EMBA was asked to get involved with a new start-up company called Time Warner Telecom, later TW Telecom and now part of CenturyLink. After we took this company public, I left TW Telecom and pursued some business start-ups that I wanted to be involved in. After being involved in 4 new companies I met up with Greg and another partner Tom McCoy to start Teligent, formerly IPitimi. It has been great to build up this company from the ground and see great people come together and succeed.
