Spotlight Market: Paramus, New Jersey


Q&A with Peter Murray, Business Sales Director for Windstream

Across the nation, businesses rely on advanced network communication solutions to conduct day-to-day operations, compete in a global marketplace and remain financially profitable. Northern New Jersey is no exception, so to support those local businesses with data, voice, network and cloud solutions and help provide a competitive edge, Windstream has recently opened a new sales office in Paramus, NJ.  We sat down for a few minutes with Peter Murray, Business Sales Director for the new Paramus office, to talk about his team, his new digs, and his thoughts on what sets Windstream apart from the competition in Paramus. 

Q: How are you and your team adjusting to the new office?

Peter Murray: Things are going really well!  The central location of our new office is fantastic. We’re in the heart of northern New Jersey and only about 20 minutes away from New York City. Since we offer a variety of data, voice, network and cloud technology solutions to businesses of all sizes in New Jersey and New York, the best part is that now we’re even closer to our business customer base—we’re practically in their backyard.

Q: What is your favorite thing about working with customers in Paramus?

PM: I love that we have a direct relationship with our customers—we’ve become a vital component in the local Paramus businesses community. I grew up in Bergen County, so I know many of our business customers personally and understand how each one plays an important role in the New Jersey business world. 

Q: What is something about Windstream and the Paramus team that customers might be surprised to know?

PM: We have fifteen team members, each with an average of 15+ years of telecommunications experience. We pride ourselves on being trusted advisors for our customers, but also on having the local knowledge required to support them.

Q: What sets Windstream apart from its Paramus competitors?

PM: Windstream is a one-stop shop. Our customers have the opportunity to integrate data, voice, network and cloud services and hardware all under one roof. And with recent severe weather trends bringing potential for significant outages, Windstream offers our business customers peace of mind with best-in-class, customized hosted solutions, including colocation, Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), managed services, cloud solutions and more. This is what makes Windstream really stand out against other providers in Paramus (or anywhere, for that matter!)
