May 4, 2012- PICS Telecom International Corp, the leading provider of Asset Management Services to the telecommunications industry and a global supplier of new and used networking equipment, celebrated their 20th anniversary this week.
Tim Williams, CEO and majority shareholder, shared stories of the startup and the challenges of growing a company the size of PICS Telecom. “In the beginning we started with a rolodex of contacts, a card table and two phones. We prospected among the Baby Bells and the LECS and sourced from the few vendors that existed at the time. Once the industry was deregulated, the long distance market exploded and then the CLEC market. We focused on quality and dependability and began to add staff. Once we realized the industry did not know how to manage their network assets we really differentiated our business from the rest of the industry and our business took off.”
The actual startup date was May 2, 1992, but the whole week was filled with games and food. On Friday May 4th the day started with a roast of Tim Williams with five hilarious presentations from the US and UK offices that were broadcast globally to operations in Asia, Europe and the USA. In the afternoon, everyone enjoyed Dinosaur barbeque and looked forward to the next twenty years.
