If you’ve been in the AV, UC, videoconferencing or systems integration business for more than a few years, you’ve probably run across at least one of the three industry veterans who recently teamed together to launch Department 60, LLC: Mike Brandofino, Kelly Harman and Salvatore (Sal) Tuminomet more than a decade ago when they were employed at Wire One Technologies. They worked closely at Wire One to help launch Glowpoint, a managed services offering that eventually became a publicly traded company in its own right.
Brandofino went on to become the CEO of Glowpoint, Harman launched a successful marketing consultancy and Tumino held senior operations executive positions at several integration companies. After a decade of crossing paths in various capacities, the trio decided it was time to team together again and launch a company that would offer both strategic and tactical consulting services to large and mid-sized enterprises.
“Every large project that a company undertakes has a lifecycle,” commented Brandofino, Managing Partner/CEO of Department 60. “Inevitably, the project gets stalled during a specific stage of the lifecycle because the company is either missing the necessary skills internally, or they have the skillsets but are too busy working on other priorities.
