MetTel Names Steven Tunney Executive VP of Planning & Strategy

Business Development Veteran to Lead Company Strategic Growth

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jun 18, 2013) - In a move that signals the company's plans for continued dynamic growth, MetTel, a leading provider of telecommunications services and network solutions, today announced the appointment of Steven Tunney as executive vice president of planning and strategy.

In this new company position, Tunney will help shape the future of MetTel as it looks to expand the breadth and depth of its services for enterprise and government customers through new technologies, strategic partnerships, mergers and acquisitions.

An accomplished deal-maker in the financial, information and technology services industries, Tunney is the former CEO of Arlington, Va.-based MCG Capital Corporation where he provided capital to support the growth and value creation strategies of middle market companies. Tunney co-founded the $1.1 billion asset business development company in 1998 and was responsible for its strategic direction until 2011.

Prior to his work with MCG, Tunney gained valuable merger and acquisition experience as vice president in the media communications group of First Union/Signet Bank in Tyson's Corner, Va., and as the chief financial officer at Cambridge Information Group in Bethesda, Md. where he participated in a number of acquisitions as well as the divestiture of several product lines. A CPA, Tunney began his career at Price Waterhouse in 1982 and later served as finance manager at Vienna, Va.-based software company Legent Corporation (formerly Morino Associates).

Tunney is one of a number of senior executives recently recruited by MetTel as it builds its leadership team and looks to leverage its technology platform and customer service expertise to expand into new areas. The company has organically grown at an annual rate of 15 percent over the past three years.

"Steven understands what it takes to build and grow a company," said MetTel CEO Marshall Aronow. "He comes to MetTel with the strong technical background, in-depth knowledge of capital markets, and merger and acquisition experience that will help guide us through the exciting years ahead."

MetTel combines the security of North America's most trusted carriers with the convenience of using one provider with a single point-of-contact in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico. The company's proprietary, cloud-based MetOne Portal enables clients to manage services and expenditures, and monitor the performance of their customized networks from one simple, user-friendly interface.

Interconnected with most wireline and wireless service providers, MetTel continues to grow and diversify its own network to get closer to customers looking for unique network solutions that help reduce total enterprise telecommunications costs, improve network performance and increase productivity while mitigating the customer's complete dependence on any one single carrier. The company now has four geographically diverse network points of presence, including a new Network Node in Chicago, Ill. announced last month.

"My relationship with MetTel's founders goes back many years," Tunney said. "I have watched them grow the company from a local POTS provider to the sophisticated telecom software, solutions and service company it is today. We have a great foundation and I look forward to helping the company grow and expand in a meaningful way."

Tunney is a graduate of Towson State University in Towson, Md.
