Steve Blidner

Founder & CEO

As CEO and founder, Steve guides TTI’s overall strategy, annual goals and objectives. His background includes more than 30 years in the self-service industry with a track record of leading startup companies to success.

Having been raised in the industry through his father’s business, Steve took over sales and operations for the company at the age of 25. Five years later, he executed a merger with a NY-based company then sold to one of the largest industry competitors, Gordon and Thomas Companies (G&T) – which operated more than 40,000 units. As part of the transition, Steve joined G&T as Sales Manager for the tri-state NY area and was onboard for eight years.

Steve launched TTI in 1991 as a telecommunications and Internet provider. He has since grown the company to millions of dollars in revenue and more than a dozen solutions – all of which were developed by listening to customer’s needs in their quest for operational efficiency. Through Steve’s leadership, TTI was one of the first to install public Internet kiosks in the NY area. Steve’s passion for customer service and integrity are evident as he interacts with customers on a daily basis to ensure complete satisfaction.
