Justin's unique ability and reputation to quickly absorb, frame, create, and execute on meaningful programs uniquely position him to guide ABi sales and marketing initiatives. The continuing support Justin has from past assignments that include companies such as MCI, Telegate Inc. of Munich, Germany, and LA based CLEC TelePacific Communication as well as from the investment community is rare, impressive, and speaks to his ability as well as to his high level of integrity and results."

Grundman continues, "With the addition of Justin, Rich Ellsworth, ABi's Chief Operating Officer, will shift his attention to the critical operations as well as a new supplier services procurement group designed to manage the inventory of connectivity and professional services we make available to our clients.

Mr. Chris-Tensen said, "I am both honored and excited with regard to ABi's confidence and invitation to join the team.

At ABi, we can seamlessly link carriers and technologies, which allow us to primarily and uniquely focus on the customer. The fact is that some of today's technologies will become tomorrow's relics -- as they do, we will be ever vigilant with regard to our client needs by ensuring they remain on a path where the latest business enabling technology is available for them without the difficulties associated with changing providers. At ABi, it's not 'business as usual,' it's 'business unusual' ... as we truly do provide every client a long term partnership."
