To Whom It May Concern,
I am pleased to provide this letter of recommendation for Nancy Ridge, Vice President of Telecom Brokers. It has been my professional experience that Nancy demonstrates extreme competence in her work. Over the past eight years, Nancy has always displayed a high degree of integrity, responsibility and responsiveness to our needs. We recently underwent an extensive relocation of our facility with many moving parts. Our communication systems were transferred impeccably and I attribute this directly to Nancy and the manner in which she supported us throughout the process.
Without reservation, I am pleased to give her my enthusiastic endorsement both professionally and personally.
I am available to provide additional information if needed and can be reached at (949)586-1922.
I want to thank you and Telecom Brokers for your assistance with our telecommunications needs over the past several years, and especially with our new VOIP service. I know we can count on Telecom Brokers to have a diversified portfolio of solutions for our current and future needs, and of course, we can always count on you to make the best recommendations to match our business. Our relationship has meant a lot to ViewSonic, helping us realize substantial savings and improve productivity through modern technologies. I would be happy to recommend your services should the opportunity present itself.

The networking event will be held on Tuesday, February 25, 2014 at 5:00 P.M. at the Burnham Ballroom in the Venetian and Sands Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The event, sponsored by Channel Partners, OnSIP, TelePacific Communications, and WTG, along with media sponsors, Telecom Brokers- and Oncore Media and raffle sponsors, BMG Consulting and Telarus, is a volunteer organized evening and includes an hour of networking with a hosted bar followed by two great education sessions sure to inspire.
“We expect more than one hundred women in attendance from across the country,” said Hilary Gadda, co-chair of the evening’s event, WiC board member and director of channel sales at TelePacific Communications. “Every event draws more attendees which is a testament to the consistent caliber of the evening’s programming and speakers.”
This year’s lineup includes welcome remarks from Khali Henderson, Editor-in-Chief for Channel Partners and keynotes from Deb Ward, CEO of TSI and Angela Leavitt, Chief Mojo-Making Officer at Mojo Marketing. WiC board member and CEO of BMG Consulting Bita Milanian will act as the master of ceremony.
During WiC’s networking event, Ms. Ward will share “My journey to success in a male dominated telecom industry.” Ms. Ward is a seasoned and respected veteran in the telecom industry. In 1999 she founded TSI and continues to serve as CEO. TSI is a nationwide switchless reseller of local and long distance services. Additionally Ms. Ward has earned a position on the Board of Comptel in its Executive and Membership Committees, and is a regular participant in industry webinars, trade association panels and executive committee forums. Ms. Ward is one of the few female CEOs in a male dominated and highly competitive telecom space, and is a regular contributor to various groups devoted to the promotion of females in executive leadership positions.
WiC is also calling on the experience and talent of its own member, Angela Leavitt of Mojo Marketing who will be giving her presentation “Traditional Lead Gen is as Dead as the Scrunchie.” In her session, Ms. Leavitt will share her expertise on how to leverage the “Connection Economy” to build partnerships, increase visibility and influence to generate growth opportunities. Formerly the director of marketing for a leading hosted PBX provider, Angela founded Mojo Marketing in 2010. With 13 full time employees and nearly 100% growth each year since its start, Mojo is one of the only full-service marketing agencies focused exclusively in the telecom, IT and cloud industries.

She frequently writes, speaks and records videos for Channel Partners, sharing sales and marketing tips, ideas and strategies.
Each session will be followed by facilitated roundtables, giving participants an opportunity to synthesize the key learnings from the speakers and translate them into potential action.
“This will be a stellar evening,” said Rebecca Rosen, co-chair of the event, WiC and Channel Partner Advisory Board member and owner of Sales Enabled. “From the high caliber speakers and WiC members to the networking with like-minded goal oriented women, attendees will not be disappointed.”
The Women in the Channel Networking Event is open to all women attending the Channel Partners Conference and Expo. Attendees must register for the event here; it is free to all WiC members and $20 for non-members.

About Women in the Channel (WiC)
Established in 2010, Women in the Channel’s mission is collaboration through Identity and Relationships to grow business. WiC is a grassroots organization made up of women who are in leadership, ownership and revenue generating roles in the alternate sales channel sector of the telecommunications industry. Month after month, these women are responsible for generating sales for their companies and creating wealth for their families. WiC members are wives and mothers and sisters, and a high percentage of us are the main breadwinners in our families. WiC brings together this group because in an industry that is growing, expanding and changing the number of women at such levels is not matching that growth.

We searched unsuccessfully for nearly two (2) years trying to find a unified phone system that would handle all of our needs and the many remote locations throughout our global offices. Telecom Brokers was the only organization that solved the problem and designed a cost effective solution that included the flexibility and feature-rich platform Worldwide Supply required. Their innovative design helped customize a phone experience suitable to the needs of our company and clients.
Much of our staff travels frequently and needed the ability to have service regardless of the city or country they traveled to. Traditional phone solutions just wouldn’t serve the purpose. With all the time we spend flying throughout the world, having a cloud based phone system was the only thing that made sense.
Telecom Brokers and 8×8 consistently provided Worldwide Supply with not only the responsiveness of a first class organization, but exhibited the best customer service of any organization we have partnered with. Telecom Brokers far exceeded our expectations, their knowledgeable staff go the extra-mile and actually care about their customers. We really appreciated the consistent follow-up, friendly personality, and attention to detail.
Thank you for providing a great product and even better customer service!
Mr Slivinsky responded to an RFP we posted through the federal Erate program for data communications services. He ultimately responded with the most cost effective solution for Internet service.
We are cautious when working with third parties and Erate, preferring to deal directly with service providers. This never became and issue during this process as there were no fees and no additional agreements. Mr Slivinsky facilitated the RFP response and contract negotiations. However, I was able to maintain direct negotiations with the service provider, and the eventual contract was made between my organization and the service provider.
I believe Mr Slivinsky helped us receive 1 Gbps Internet service at a much lower cost than other proposals we had received.

“Roman did great work finding options for us as we moved to a new provider and he explained the pros and cons of each one we considered. I never felt a hard sell with Roman– to the contrary, he was quite candid about the entire process. I felt when we decided on a provider we did so with abundant information and no illusions.
Most importantly, Roman follows through. After the sale is completed Roman doesn’t forget his clients. It is there where she shows his worth in using his leverage to make sure things are done right and promptly.
I refer him unconditionally.”
