Why choose Walnut?

Walnut Telecom Group was founded on the belief that by focusing on providing a superior customer experience, this will create a long lasting customer relationship.


Many telecom companies are extremely focused on sales and marketing but lack the necessary back office and support resources.  Because of this, we have seen some companies have an unfavorable experience with outages, downtime, billing and support issues.

At Walnut Telecom Group, our goal is to become an extension of a company’s IT and Telecom departments to help eliminate these issues.  We start by conducting a thorough analysis of the applications and goals of an organization.  Our next step is to carefully research service providers to determine the best solution and provide the best pricing to our clients.  We then assist our clients in the negotiation of contracts, terms and conditions, as well as compiling the order details to submit to the carrier.  The next step is the coordination of the implementation with the carrier, the IT vendor/dept, and the voice vendor/dept to ensure everyone is on the same page for the test/turnup of the circuit(s).

Our support resources after the sale, implementation and turnup are also another reason to utilize Walnut Telecom.  We act on the customers’ behalf to escalate trouble tickets for outages and service interruptions to ensure that trouble tickets are being handled by the carriers.

After the 1st Bill is issued, we also review this with our client to ensure billing accuracy and work with the carrier on dispute resolution.  We work with the carrier if they need to issue credits for any inaccurate billing.

We realize that our clients’ voice and data communications are critical for them to operate their businesses.  This is why many companies have chosen Walnut Telecom Group to provide voice and data telecom solutions for their companies.

A pleasure to work with…

“I have known Chris for years and worked with him in several companies I have worked at. In our latest capacities I have recommended Chris to clients without hesitation – He is honest and delivers both product and services to my clients without question. I value his involvement and I increase my own standing with my clients when I recommend him. It is a pleasure to work with Chris and my pleasure to let others know they are in good company when using Chris' services.”

Mike Massaro, President for Massaro Enterprises

The only resource I need…

“As an IT consultant, I am focused on worrying about how my clients’ data network services are working, and cannot always keep abreast of current telecom trends and offerings. When I have a client who needs to introduce, add or change telecom services, I will always call Chris immediately–with no exceptions! Over the years, I have come to the conclusion that he is the only resource I need when it comes to finding the right telecom services at the right price for my clients. As a result, I no longer waste my, or my clients’, time trying to find the right telecom solutions, and I am able to deliver even greater value because of his services. He provides some of the best after-the-install support and provider support access I have experienced in the industry. Since adopting Walnut Telecom Group as my only go-to telecom consultant, my client satisfaction surveys have improved considerably.”

Ryan Ploger, IT Consultant

They worked miracles for us…

“I would highly recommend Walnut Telecom Group to anyone who is looking for a phone partner. Chris was instrumental in getting a phone hook-up in a complicated environment within a very limited window of time. They say it pays to know someone in the business and I am so glad that I know Chris. He was able to accomplish things that I could never have been able to do on my own. Chris was responsive to my crazy anxiety attacks regarding securing the necessary internet services. He would call and email me back at all hours. Next time, I will believe it when Chris says not to worry. Bottom-line: They worked miracles for us and I will definitely call them with my next installation. Thanks, Chris. “

Consistently brings the best solution…

"I have worked with Chris for the past six years and he has served as our telecom partner and coordinated many significant changes for this organization over those years.  He helped us managed and reduce multiple vendor contracts as well as bring better choices for new or replacement services from the marketplace.  On several occasions, Chris has also made sure that our new services were installed and in good working order; he has run interference for us with slow or non-responsive vendors and made sure that we were getting the support we needed from our telecom vendors.  It is has been a pleasure to work with Chris and I truly value his depth of industry knowledge and commitment to consistently bring the best solution that he can to our organization."

Gayle Giguere, CIO for Republic Financial Corporation
