30 Great Places to Work 2018
Timely and reliable communication within an organization and also with its customers is crucial. Telecommunication is an important tool for businesses and its advantages are many. Technology in the telecommunications industry has changed greatly over the past few years. Telecommunication – the lifeblood of the contemporary society – has brought 98% of the world under its network coverage. It enables participation and development and provides vital infrastructure for national security. All this can be made possible by a telecom provider and Capital Telecom Services (CTS) is definitely a good choice. CTS is a company which foresees the impact the telecommunication industry is going to have in future – just like the Internet.
Kevin Turrisi – Founder and CEO of Capital Telecom Services, the man who lives and breathes wireless, talks about the impact Telecom Industry has on this society and the company including him. “I fell in love with this industry 20 years ago when I realized the vast impact Telecommunications had on society… I decided to build a Telecommunications company that at its core is a home for passionate telecom professionals.” Capital Telecom Services was founded in the year 2016 and is headquartered at Sterling, Virginia. CTS provides turn-key solutions to help tailor all telecommunication needs.

“Together We Stand” – CTS and its Employees
The company pats itself on the back for having the best team in the industry. At CTS, employees will always come first, “If you cultivate a strong and knowledgeable team, a good solid business will be the result,” says Mr. Turrisi. The team at CTS collaborates daily to execute the highest standards in the telecommunications industry. “Training, retraining, and the desire to constantly get better keeps us moving… We love this industry and are dedicated to constant improvement,” he added.

Mr. Turrisi recalls the first project of Capital Telecom Services – as a sub-contractor to a large organization. He remembers the intense feeling he was confronted with while managing this project as an owner, for the first time. “Working out of my garage, arranging vendor accounts, setting up credit lines, were all aspects that weren’t part of my experience as an employee in the industry. This feeling was surreal, and at that moment I knew this was the right path,” he said.
The Way Forward
One of the biggest impacts to the telecom construction industry is the transition of the major service providers to a turf pricing model. There is a lot of pressure on the fulfillment organizations to provide the same services and solutions for such reduced prices. This triggered CTS to create sufficient cash flow and lines of credit to conduct a roll-up of similar organizations to address this issue. The budding telecom company aims to create a huge impact in the industry by expanding itself in the market – large enough to make a difference.
