• Troy L. Cryer
    CEO

    Troy got his start in the telephony industry in 1980, when his grandfather retired from SBC and they founded the family interconnect business, located in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. In 1992, at the age of 24, Troy co-founded Telesystems, Inc., an Arlington-based telecommunications company. Their specialties included contact centers, manufacturing, auto-dealerships and municipalities.  Within four years, Telesystems was recognized as a market leader for Inter-Tel products.  Their support quickly grew to Statewide coverage as customers learned of their expertise and focus on client satisfaction.

    In 1998, Inter-Tel Technologies acquired Telesystems and Troy began his corporate management journey. His experience includes roles as Sales Manager, General Manager, and Regional Vice President.

    In 2005, Troy joined forces with David Blum of TL Communications to form Comm3. With more than 30 years of communications experience, Troy helps bring great value to Comm3 clients through his results-based processes.

    Troy knows there is no room for mediocrity, as proven by the company’s remarkable client satisfaction scores.

    Troy has been married to his wife Kim for over 21 years and they have a son Nate who keeps them very active following his activities in school.  Together, they enjoy restoring vintage cars & trucks, boating, snow skiing, golf, sporting clays and vacation travels.
