Chris Merendoni

Business Development Assoicate

Having worked previously with Prime Communications and AT&T for several years, I have honed my skills in sales and customer service practicing the many traditional sales techniques important for success. The key to my achievements; however, in my work and personal life has been my ability to establish lasting, mutually beneficial relationships with virtually anyone. These relationships bring business but more importantly satisfied customers, and provide a foundation on which to grow in both aspects of myself.
