Built to last.
This is QMC Telecom.

Our vision is to foster growth in every community that we touch, from our clients and employees to our partners.
The way we do this is by enabling connectivity.

We are a vital component of the communications landscape, and through our solutions, we empower people and businesses to connect seamlessly with one another. We take this responsibility seriously. We are only great insofar as we solve client needs—or, in this case, your needs.

We also only succeed if our partners succeed. That is why we have cultivated close relationships at every level of the wireless ecosystem, and why our partners have stayed with us as we have scaled. From suppliers to wireless integrators to DAS consultants, we empower the many parties who work with us, both with our capital as well as our expertise and collaborative approach. Our investor base is at the core of these relationships.


Investing in connectivity is investing in the future.

QMC invests in infrastructure for the long term. To fund our deployments, we maintain a high-quality pool of capital through both our equity commitments and corporate credit facilities. Our shareholder base is supportive, experienced, and well-capitalized.

Our largest shareholders include Housatonic Partners, Accel Partners, Grupo Santo Domingo, Peterson Partners, and Pacific Lake Partners.

Our Board of Directors

QMC is governed by a world-class board of directors, with representation from private equity funds such as Accel and Housatonic Partners, as well as seasoned entrepreneurs and operators from Ascenty and Asurion.

Our Board of Directors represent an invaluable asset that is essential to our success and ability to create company value.
