  • Chicago, IL (1888PressRelease) October 07, 2011 - Access Media 3 ("AM3"), a leading provider of triple-play media services to multi-dwelling unit properties, today announced the promotion of Eric Welles to Senior Vice President for Business Development. In his new role, Welles will focus on growth strategies for the company, including forthcoming acquisitions. AM3 is widely recognized in the telecom industry for its aggressive growth and was recently ranked on the 2011 Inc. 500 list as among the fastest growing private companies in America.

    In his new role as Senior VP for Business Development, Welles will support ongoing growth in AM3's existing markets of Chicago, Minneapolis/St. Paul, and Southeast Florida, as well as potential new markets. Since his appointment in 2007, Welles has been intensely involved in AM3's dramatic evolution into a major telecom industry player. "When I came to AM3, we served just 5,000 subscribers, and only in Chicago," he comments. "Now we provide triple-play services to almost 40,000 subscribers in approximately 450 buildings in three separate markets. It's exciting to be part of such a dynamic entrepreneurial company, and I look forward to the opportunity to continue its growth."

    AM3 provides bundled internet, voice and DIRECTV satellite television services to apartment buildings, condominium associations and other multi-unit residential settings. The company has seen dramatic expansion since its launch in 2007, including most recently the acquisition of Peoples Choice Cable in Boca Raton, Florida. The Inc. 500 list, published in September 2011, ranked AM3 number 305 nationally for growth, making it the 12th fastest growing company in Chicago and the only telecom company in Illinois to crack the top 500.

    Welles entered the telecom industry in 2003, as a sales and operational leader for Tunnel Vision Technology where he helped grow the company's revenues to over 300% in two years. Welles then joined AM3 as Vice President of Sales in October 2007. Since 2010 he has served as AM3's VP of Business Development, with responsibility for product management, technical evaluations and customer relationship management. Prior to entering the telecom industry, Welles had extensive marketing and management experience in traditional CPG companies including Procter & Gamble, DelMonte, and the Guinness Bass Import Company.
