Tele-Data Solutions began in 1982 when Michael Finaldi founded it in Union, New Jersey. From traditional on-premises phone systems to the cloud-based VoIP systems of today, the company has consistently grown and evolved with the technology. Through it all, the core value has always been to service the client above all else.
TDS has been going strong for over thirty-five years, earning a spot as a top three cloud reseller in our dealer community in 2016 and 2017. TDS even secured a spot on the prestigious Inc. 5000 list in 2017.
Michael’s sons, Damon and Vincent, are now proud to lead this family-owned, family-first company.

With over seventeen years in the industry, Damon proudly brings his VoIP experience and expertise to Tele-Data Solutions day in and day out.

Damon is currently a member of the New Jersey chapter of Entrepreneurs’ Organization, which consists of numerous business owners sharing their best practices and ideas for success.
Before working for TDS, Damon received his bachelor’s degree from Pennsylvania State University in industrial engineering, as well as MBA credits from Rutgers University. He was then an IT consultant at PricewaterhouseCoopers, where he specialized in SAP software implementation.
