Velocity History – Since 2005
Velocity launched in 2005 when telecom-industry veteran Greg Kiley transitioned from selling long-distance phone service to providing companies with a more expansive telecommunications experience.
It didn’t take long for customers to realize that Velocity’s emerging technologies could significantly improve the way they communicate and do business. Soon, Velocity was servicing thousands of corporate, retail, and hospitality clients. Velocity’s service offerings continue to grow—making life easier and more profitable for our customers. Now, with over 500 employees, Velocity is an unstoppable force.
