About the Team

Curtis: President/Owner   

In 1979 when I started Interconnect, the joke was “is this legal kid?”, the private telecommunication industry was just in its infancy and most businesses merely rented their telephones from Ma Bell. Ownership was not an option.

The dawning of this Industry has blossomed into huge technology advancements, it’s my job to keep up with the latest enhancements and how those impact and improve the landscape of your business.

Give me a project to put together, you will love it!

I spend much of my free time these days tending to the needs of my wife, growing children, mother, and mother-in-law. I enjoy my service work with the Bellingham Bay Rotary Club and look forward to our two large fundraisers each year; Brewers by the Bay and the Grape and Gourmet. The funds raised at these events directly impact our local charities like the Bellingham Food Bank, but also global causes like the global eradication of polio.

A couple of things that might surprise you about me it that I love to dance, and I can shuck a mean oyster!

Felicity: General Manager/Owner  

I love learning about your business and how our products can help you grow in efficiency and customer service. Your call is our business, we take it seriously.

When I teach our Lunch and Learn workshops I hope to bring some clarity to the muddy world of telecommunications and how each piece links to your business. If you haven’t been to one of our classes, I highly recommend them! We have found the more informed a client is about what they purchase the greater satisfaction they have in their purchase. Education is the key.

Away from work, you will more than likely find me in my kitchen - yes really - Let’s have a party! I also love to travel, whether it’s locally exploring the amazing area we live in, or far away—ask me about my trip to the villages of Italy!

Emily: Service Dispatch & Help Desk   

I love my clients! When I answer the phone, I hope you hear that in my voice!  Give me a problem and I will find you a solution.

Daniel: Telecom Technician

I love learning new things! Since I started at Interconnect I have received my IP certification and my Mitel Certification. I am now ready to work on your Mitel phone system!

I love to fish - you might find a fishing pole in the windshield of my truck, just in case I pass a good fishing hole!



 

 

 

Michael: Sales & Business Development 

As an experienced technology manager and consultant, I take great pride in equipping my clients with appropriate, empowering business solutions. With my role at Interconnect Systems focused on sales and business development, I firmly believe our success is rooted in relationships based on integrity and client advocacy: client success is our success! These are the qualities and approach that I bring to each engagement. The result is a targeted business solution supported by a trusted business partner. I apply these same values in our community as I serve the Technology Alliance Group Northwest (TAG) organization as a board member. At TAG, we advocate for business, technology, and the economic development of our exceptional local communities here in Whatcom County.

Away from the office, my amazing wife and I enjoy our adventure as new parents to our two young children - playing, swimming, hiking, and exploring in our beautiful Pacific Northwest. When my wife and I escape for a date, we enjoy live local music, a social game, and a beer or two from one of our many fantastic local breweries here in Bellingham. Fellow beer lover? Ask me how fun it is to brew your own beer! Feel free to reach out and connect with me at the office or on LinkedIn, and check out the excellent work we are doing with TAG. Looking forward to meeting you.

Matt: Operations Manager

Even with 30+ years of experience, I am learning every day, the Telecom Industry is always evolving. I try to be the first on our team to get certified on a new product or software, so I can teach our crew. I am really excited about the new software features and enhancements on the Mitel product line, like the Mitel Phone Manager and the Contact Center software. 

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, golfing, fishing and the outdoors in general.

Mike: Telecom Technician

I love installing new Mitel Telephone Systems! The systems come into us completely blank and I program them with all your custom information. Each system is built to your specifications

When I am not helping my clients with their telephone needs, I love to golf and support the Seahawks! I also have a sweet tooth and love baked goods.

Keegan: Telecom Technician

Keegan graduated from Bellingham High School and headed to Hawaii. There he worked for a telecommunications company for about four years until he moved back home to further his schooling. Keegan is currently enrolled at Whatcom Community College studying Cyber Security. He hopes to transfer to Western in a couple years to finish his degree. In his free time, he enjoys reading, hiking, and video games.

Retired - Thank you for all your great work for our clients, you will be missed!

Marcus: Telecom Technician

I am the upgrade specialist. As soon as a new software level is released, I get certified and ready to bring your telephone system to the latest software level. This helps bring my clients new feature enhancements and also protects their system from malicious attacks and hackers.

At home, I am a voracious cook and love regional Mexican cuisine. I roast my own coffee beans and make some pretty fine jams and jellies. Music is my other love! I’ve played drums with a West-African style drum and dance group for the past ten years.

I love to fish - you might find a fishing pole in the windshield of my truck, just in case I pass a good fishing hole!

Herm: Account Executive

As a former high school teacher, my first love is teaching my clients about the new technology and how that applies to their business. And with my 25 years in the computer business, I have a background that serves me well in the current telephone communications field where the new PBX’s (telephone brain) are computer “servers.” Although I’m  “officially” retired from Interconnect, I still keep my hand in play when I am needed. Working keeps me young!

I love my life in Whatcom County, my extended family, and all their activities. I love to work in my garden, tend to my chickens and tinker in my garage. In my “spare” we travel in our Motorhome and volunteer at both my church and the Mount Baker Theater.
