About us




To summarize my 45 years  of experience: I began in 1968 working for Southwestern Bell. After 5  years my  largest accounts were Anheuser Busch, Monsanto world  headquarters and St. Louis University. I then worked as V.P. of  operations for a St. Louis based interconnect company installing ROLM  Systems 1,3, and 5 off the assembly line. I became Product Manager for  General Dynamics, designing systems nationwide. In 1980 I moved to New  Orleans with Southwest Utilities where I was V.P. of Operations. I  designed, engineered and implemented a PBX System for the entire Tulane  University campus. After Southwest Utilities was sold, I started my own  interconnect company - First Communications Company. We became the first  Authorized Sales Representative for Bellsouth. My knowledge and  training with Bellsouth includes Essx, Multiserve, Centrex, T1,  Fractional T1-T3, Frame Relay, ISDN, ADSL, Syncronet, Megalink and most  other data offerings. I have been factory trained on Rolm, NEC, Active  Voice, Iwatsu, Toshiba, Comdial and others. In 1994 I was the first  person in the south to actually make computer telephone integration  (CTI) work!     See Reference section.

As  you can see, with over 45 some years in the telecommunication field, I  have been involved in almost every aspect of voice and data  communications. Most recently, I have become familiarized with the  following Voice-Over-IP manufacturers: Mitel, Siemens, Cisco-Avvid, NEC,  and 3Com. I have the knowledge and experience to make sure you get what  is right for you!

I have been an agent for Time Warner telecom,  Windstream,  AT&T, Cox and others. Over the years, I have seen it  all from these hardware and dial tone providers. From 2010 through 2015 I  have sold cloud services and hosted PBX systems. For all of this, I  have seen the good, the bad and the ugly. At the end of 2015 I left  First Communications to work exclusively for Bren-Cor. Bren-Cor is a 30  year old consulting company in New Orleans.
