Against the Odds: Inter-Tel : the First 30 Years
Growing up, Steve Mihaylo was known as a problem solver and innovative thinker. Traveling around the Southwest installing telephone systems in the mid-1960s, Mihaylo set his sights on something bigger -- owning his own company. In 1969, Mihaylo founded Inter-Tel with fellow partner Conway Chester. Inter-Tel first sold intercoms, but the company wouldn't stay small for long. Mihaylo transformed his company into a cutting edge, single-source communication technology provider. Award-winning author Jeffrey L. Rodengen captures the entrepreneurial spirit of a man whose life and work intersects with the Information Age.
