Converging Networks Group was founded by Jerry Kuntz, along with his son Brad and daughter Jill in 2003, after a 20-year career working in business sales positions with Illinois Bell, AT&T, Lucent Technologies and Avaya. During his career with these market-leading communication system firms, Jerry earned numerous sales awards including Leaders Council recipient for top 2% of all nationwide sales personnel in 1993, and eleven consecutive years as Millionaire’s Club recipient from 1990-2000 for exceeding 175% of his annual sales quota.
Jerry is most proud of his Leadership 2000 Award for volunteerism and leadership provided in his local community, of which only sixteen are awarded annually by Avaya. As a sales leader for those 20-years, he developed unmatched business and customer service skills that earned him the respect of all of his team members and customers.
His vast experience in account management, consultative account planning, multi-site voice network design and communication strategies with small and medium businesses. He also served as a National Accounts Manager in his final two years at Avaya which provided the background needed to start Converging Networks Group, Inc. in 2003. A journey of constant improvement from the kitchen table at the start to now in its 15th year of business, Converging Networks Group has grown into one of the leading Avaya Cloud and Voice Over IP partners in the Chicago and Midwest area.
Jerry and his wife Marla live in Bourbonnais, Illinois, near their two Children, their spouses, and five grandchildren.
