If you know anyone even remotely thinking about business phone service – whether it be a new startup, a move, adding locations, replacing old equipment, trying to run a business off of a cell phone, looking to save money, or just sick and tired of Verizon, Cable or bad VoIP service, do them a favor and give them my name and number.
Larry’s award winning career began in the ’60s at Long Island radio stations WGBB and WGSM, then going on to a variety of broadcasting, advertising and technical accomplishments, both on and off the air.
In the ’70s Larry created the award winning advertising program for Crazy Eddie, writing and producing over 3,500 radio and television commercials that are universally recognized as advertising classics today. He also created one of the first high volume call centers – the famous Crazy Eddie “Free Price Quote” line (645-1196), which was his entry into the world of telecom technologies (not counting a stint in college working for New York Telephone, cutting up old telephone poles with a chainsaw. It’s true!).
In the ’80s, in addition to advertising work for names such as Raceway Park and Chuck E. Cheese’s, Larry also continued expanding his telecom work as one of the early pioneers in the telecom technologies of voice mail and interactive content by phone. As a result, with the breakup of AT&T, his broadcasting and communications skills, and his newly developed telecom technologies, Larry’s company became a content provider contractor with NYNEX and other regional “Baby Bells.” If you ever dialed the weather (976-1212) or the time (976-1616) it was Larry’s automated services you heard.
With the consolidation of what became Verizon, along with new developments in Internet and VoIP technologies, Larry formed Atlantic Computer Group, Inc. and developed ACG Telecom – a boutique telephone company offering small businesses, professional practices and small offices a personal, solutions-oriented alternative to behemoth phone service providers.
