On March 25, 2019, Richmond BizSense released its annual Generosity Inc. list recognizing philanthropic companies around the Richmond area. For the third year in a row, Comtel Managed Solutions was acknowledged for its contributions and investments in the local community. Ranking 34th for 2018 giving, Comtel reported an increase in giving over the prior year.

Both Simplicity VoIP and its parent company Comtel Communications were founded on the spirit of service to their customers and organizations who enrich the lives of those in the community with the mantra that we should provide more than just a product or service. Throughout the years, investment in the surrounding community has been and remains one of the most important corporate values.

In 2018, the Richmond Kickers Foundation, The Steward School, Beth Shalom and the Hanover Tavern were among top recipients of corporate giving. In addition to financial contributions, company leaders and team members share their time and talent with numerous non-profit, educational, and recreational outreach programs.

Ben Humphreys, Simplicity VoIP and Comtel’s founder and CEO stated, “We are grateful to be in a place to contribute to worthwhile organizations. A key element of our business culture is to give back and share the many blessings that we have received from playing an active role in the local community. Whether we are providing a technology solution or volunteering our time and talent, we are committed to be an excellent steward and role model to others. We look forward to many more years of continued philanthropic outreach and are grateful to be on such a respected list with other like-minded companies.”
