One year ago today, on December 1, 2015, we announced the acquisition of Jenaly Technology Group, Inc. by Internet & Telephone, LLC. What a year its been!
I started Jenaly in 1997. Paul Cissel and Pete Peterson started I&T in 2002. Paul, Pete and I have known each other for just shy of 25 years. We’ve always liked and respected each other and bringing our companies together for the benefit of our customers and our teams was a smart decision.
Have there been bumps along the way? Of course there have been, but nothing we weren’t expecting and nothing that has caused any of us to question our decision. Together with Doug Smith and Ken Teal, we’ve got the best C level team in the industry, as Pete likes to say. We have a team of over 50 professionals that true to our Mission Statement, deliver First Class service in a proactive manner for our customers voice and data needs.
As I look back over the past year, I’m so pleased with what we have accomplished. We have had some expected attrition, both in staff and customers, but we are absolutely thrilled to say that some of those customers who left, have come back enthusiastically and we welcomed them back with equal enthusiasm. What a testament to the quality and value that I&T brings to our customers! We brought together two companies, two cultures, two teams, two customer bases and common tools, business philosophies and goals to create the premier managed services provider (MSP) in New England and beyond. There is no limit to what we can accomplish and how much fun and success we will have along the way.
I am beyond pleased to be part of this amazing team driving this incredible company into the future. The best is yet to come, but as Paul likes to say, I am humbly grateful, but in no way satisfied.
Thanks for your support over the years and looking forward to sharing exciting new services and successes in the future. Cheers!
