The Staxos TeamYour Leader in Enterprise Management
With over 50 years of experience combined, we’ve built long-term, solid partnerships in the telecom and technology sectors that allow us to source the best resources across our clients’ entire technology stack, including telecom and mobility expense management. This allows us to become a zero-cost extension to their technology department, ensuring they receive the best pricing and experience while acquiring, provisioning, integrating, and managing their technology needs.
As the wireless industry changes, we work directly with the carrier management support teams to ensure continued success for our partners’ businesses. We utilize the carriers’ direct portal access and management support tools, allowing us to improve our partners’ support models within each desired telecom area.
The Executive Team
Nick WilsonFounder, President & CEO
I have over 20 years of experience in the wireless industry. My career began in the paging business before moving to Phoenix, Arizona to work for Nextel. In 2001, I saw a growing need on the indirect-side of the industry and formed new partnerships there. Under the advisement of great mentors, I learned a lot about the industry and am thankful for their guidance and the knowledge they provided me. Wanting to create my own business, I moved to Dallas, Texas and started the GuerraWilson Group. In 2017, I partnered with Robbie Vega to merge our businesses together and rebranding it as Staxos. Working with Gavin Maloof, we have become a top provider in the telecom and technology consulting business. My goal has always been to build something different in the industry and provide the best services and experience for the companies we serve.
I met Nick in 2001 when I started my career in the wireless industry with Nextel. In 2003, I became an independent communication consultant and later purchased an existing Sprint Nextel organization. I immediately began restructuring the former StarCity Enterprises into Global Comm, focusing on delivering the best pre- and post-sales experience for telecom solutions. In late 2017, Nick and I merged Global Comm with Staxos, focusing on becoming a top provider of technology and telecom consulting and sourcing for leading enterprise organizations.
I’m proud to bring a century of Maloof family business values to Staxos as we expand our technology presence. I met Robbie 25 years ago when my family opened our first casino in Las Vegas. At 24, I became the youngest sports franchise owner of the Houston Rockets. From 1997-2013, together with my brother, Joe, we owned the Sacramento Kings. We successfully led the Kings and Rockets to 10 playoff appearances. My family and I created the Las Vegas Palms Casino Resort Hotel. Currently, we are the largest minority shareholders of the Vegas Golden Knights NHL Hockey team. Taking care of our employees and delivering world class customer service is the cornerstone of everything we do.
David SonensteinExecutive Vice President
I’ve spent the last two decades in telecommunications and technology, holding positions with Sprint, Level 3 Communications, Visage Mobile, and most recently building and managing the Americas office for Amsterdam-based technology-management SaaS provider, Ezwim. I was recently elected to a second term on the Board of Directors for the Enterprise Technology Management Association. Nick and I were peer-recognized with the ETMA Innovation of the Year award for our very first engagement (eBonding-as-a-Service). This made my decision to join the STAXOS family in 2019 an easy one. I enjoy delivering innovative automation solutions to vendors who support enterprises with their technology endeavors.
Gerry WerginVice President - Government Solutions
I am a dynamic, results-driven strategic manager and sales professional. I bring 12+ years of experience to the Government provisioning business at STAXOS. I spent eight years as a sales manager at West Business Solutions, responsible for strategic management of inside sales activities. Before that, I was owner and Vice President of SJW Bakeries, LLC in Wisconsin. I also have experience in receivables management services, consulting with wireless communications companies. I look forward to developing client relationships and expanding our reach with the Government, Medical and First Responders Solutions here at STAXOS.
Christina FaustDirector of Service Delivery
I bring an extensive background in telecom knowledge, software development and configuration management to my role at STAXOS. I hold both PMP and ITIL certifications and have led corporate wireless contract negotiations, driven expense management improvements, implemented solid project management processes, and managed large enterprise client relationships. I have 20 years of telecommunications experience with roles at American Electric Power, Vox Mobile, and before joining STAXOS in 2019, I was the Director of Operations at Ezwim USA, a multinational technology-management SaaS provider.
The Management Team
Gary ReynoldsVP of Operations
I’ve spent many years in the telecommunications industry. Prior to moving into sales, I identified an industry need for trained individuals to install switching and transmission equipment that is used today in all telephone central offices. Based on that need, I designed curriculum, negotiated state funding contracts, supervised student recruitment, and subsequent job placement for the industry. I’ve worked for the government, public safety, construction, agribusiness, field service, transportation, and healthcare, providing accounting, consulting, facilitating, and training. Today, I provide business-to-business sales for Staxos. On average, my clients achieved a 20% increase in profitability.
Amanda SchuttenhelmVice President of Procurement & Implementation
I began my career managing high-revenue client orders and providing customer account support for commercial and business accounts within AT&T. My experience as an account manager taught me the importance of listening to the customer’s concerns and working diligently to solve their business needs. I joined GuerraWilson in 2017 as the Director of Procurement and Implementation. My duties at Staxos include meeting regularly with the Carriers and with our expense management partners to ensure that their clients’ goals are met.
Rob BarberVP of Canadian Operations
I have over 20 years of telecommunications industry experience, working in various senior sales and service roles at one of Canada’s largest telecom companies. This tenure and the variety of roles gave me extensive “front- and back-of-the-house” experience, enabling me to have well-rounded exposure with extensive telecom industry knowledge. I use this insight to maintain carrier relationships in the Canadian telecom market. I work directly with our clients in supporting their customers located across Canada, ensuring they receive a positive experience with the Staxos.
