Adam Pasternack is CEO and Lead Investor of VergX. Adam has worked in telecommunications and IT for over 28 years and started his career as a long-distance sales representative before internet access was available to businesses and local voice deregulation occurred. In 1991, Pasternack started a telecom consulting company that besides working on behalf of end-user businesses also represented multiple service providers. Throughout his experience in the market, he saw the breakdown in service for the enterprise, MSPs and resellers in providing overall single-source solutions, implementation and support. In response to this, over the next 26 years, Pasternack launched several companies providing services including carrier/connectivity services, fax, data center/colocation, hosted PBX and unified communications. All of his companies primarily focus on turnkey solutions for resellers, speeding up time to revenue and ensuring a best-in-class experience throughout the chain of service. Now at VergX, Pasternack brings this valuable industry experience and works directly with management to ensure continuous delivery of high-quality service and support.
