Kent C. McMillion
President – KMcMillion@method1.net
Kent received his undergraduate and graduate degrees in Business Management from Marshall University. He started his career in the Telecom Industry at Cincinnati Bell Long Distance (CBLD). He then moved on to a position with UniDial Communications, later reorganized as Lightyear Communications, where he earned “President’s Club” honors every year. Having experience in Long Distance and Data he decided to network and partner with top representatives at Interconnects, CLECs, and Software vendors to offer advice on total solutions for customers. “I would look at customers’ bills and know of carriers that could save them money, provide better service, and enhance their Telecom applications.” By building a reputation for knowing the products of many carriers, and building a strong network of representatives that would in turn introduce long distance and data opportunities; Kent became one of Lightyear’s top producing representatives and agents for the State of Kentucky and West Virginia. His achievements include developing a wholesale long-distance package exclusively for Fibernet Communications (CLEC) and multi-state data applications for Fortune 1000 companies. Working with customers large and small it became clear that knowledge and access to the products of at least 10 providers are needed to pick the best ones for each customer. This along with clients’ requests for a single point of contact became the basis of what is now the Method One Communications’ Concept. Kent has assembled a portfolio of the best products by making Method One Communications authorized agents of carriers and selected resellers with proven track records. Kent continues to work with our carriers to ensure Method One Communications clients receive the most up-to-date products at highly competitive rates.
