Kathy’s career began over forty years ago with South Central Bell. She was one of three people selected nationwide to start the AT&T National Sales School in Denver. Following that assignment, she became the first woman in South Central Bell to manage an entire sales district with hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue and over 125 employees.
Next, she received a job offer from MCI to head up the National Account organization in Tennessee and Kentucky. Again, she and her National Account Division exceeded revenue quotas year after year, receiving many top honors. After successfully climbing the corporate ladder at Bell, AT&T, and MCI, she took a sabbatical to determine what she wanted to accomplish over the next twenty years of her career.
While on sabbatical, she received a call from one of her former clients, Angie Pelosi. In 1997, Angie had started AP Telecommunications. It had grown to a point that Angie needed a project manager to work with her. After numerous discussions between the two ladies, Angie offered Kathy a full partnership in the company. AP Telecommunications became Convergent Technologies Consulting, LLC in August of 2001.
Although Angie has retired, Kathy continues to grow and expand the business. She has surrounded herself with very talented employees who are continuing to uphold the high qualities of CTC that she and Angie have established.
In her spare time Kathy enjoys spending with her family which includes her husband, son, daughter-in-law, two precious granddaughters, ages 2 and 3, her granddog, and her sister. She also enjoys reading and spending time at the beach.
