Focal Solutions Leadership
Chad Jacobs – Co-founder
Chad Jacobs officially turned his vision of building a customer-centric telecommunications agency into a reality in 2007, when Focal Solutions gained status as an independent, private company. That vision, however, had been taking shape since 2002, when Chad joined Pillar Communications, a Phoenix-based VAR. There, he built on his experience of having previously managed accounts at Global Crossing (now Level 3) and MCI (now Verizon) and witnessed the need for businesses to have a trusted, carrier-neutral advocate who would put their best interests at the forefront.
The framework Chad put into place at Pillar Communications became Focal Solutions in 2007 when Chad joined forces with Steve Jorgenson who shared the same vision. With the addition of Steve Jorgenson, Focal Solutions focused on solving businesses’ network-solutions dilemmas and locating the best network services for their present and future needs. Customers responded with repeat business and referrals, proving the depth of need and gratitude for the Focal Solutions partnership, which provides a single point of guidance when choosing voice and data solutions.
The continued growth of Focal Solutions is a result of the demand of clients, who value the company’s commitment to customer service and who trust the Focal Solutions team to empower them with the industry knowledge necessary to make the most optimal choices for their business needs.
Steve Jorgenson – Co-founder
Steve Jorgenson has 19 years of experience in telecommunications and co-founded Focal Solutions with Chad. His business acumen and long history in technology-based businesses have helped propel the company into the success that it is today. Steve’s previous work included co-founding an IP telephone company for 3rd Wave Solutions now named Altivon. For 18 years, Altivon has provided telecom equipment service to midsize and large companies all throughout the U.S. and Canada.
