Our Company

The Ma Bell corporate monopoly had been toppled by the Justice Department in 1982, but Jerry saw that many nonprofits had a difficult time understanding the choices and making the decisions necessary to take advantage of emerging new telecommunications options. He set about to remedy that in his beloved Volvo (our first company vehicle) which he used to park blocks away from customers’ offices out of embarrassment! As the former executive director of CalPIRG, his affinity for nonprofits became — and remains — the founding ideal of Alternative.
