“I have had the pleasure of knowing Carolina Digital Phone’s CEO Nicky Smith since 1994, and have admired his vision and capacity to re-invent his companies in response to market needs, business trends, and technological developments,” commented Mr. Worrell. “Since joining the team, my positive impressions have only deepened. This hand-picked group not only has the technical and industry expertise to support the company’s mission, but just as importantly, they have developed remarkably strong relationships and bond with their customers. While a lot of companies just talk about putting customers first, Carolina Digital Phone over-delivers. Knowing Nicky I expected nothing less, but the degree of customer engagement and loyalty is astonishing, and something that is rarely seen in the telecommunications and technology space.”
“We are going through a very positive and exciting time in our company’s nearly 20-year history, and while we have enjoyed substantial success in the past, the growth potential that lies ahead is enormous and uncharted,” commented CEO Nicky Smith. “We need to have the very best people here to help us manage our growth, and we couldn’t have hoped for anyone better than Steve. He’s not only an acclaimed expert, but his understanding of brand-building and customer service delivery is world-class. We are very proud and fortunate to have Steve as a key member of our leadership team, and have every confidence that he will play a pivotal role in our continued success.”
