When I heard they were hiring an executive sales assistant, I jumped at the opportunity. This is a family-owned company and their commitment to their customers is really impressive. There’s loyalty there. I honestly have never experienced a company with such a level of customer service focus.”

Steve Blidner, Founder & CEO
As CEO and founder, Steve guides TTI’s overall strategy, annual goals, and objectives. His background includes more than 40 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 and then sold to one of the largest industry competitors, which operated more than 40,000 units. As part of the transition, Steve joined 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 by offering more than a dozen solutions – all of which were developed by listening to customers’ 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.

Prior to PIX, Alex was the Vice President of Operations for Golden Screen, the leading out-of-home Internet-based self-service provider.
