David Goodwin brings over 25 years of experience in the telecommunications industry to his lead role as managing partner at ATC. He oversees all aspects of the business, bringing unmatched integrity, service and attention to detail into every client and carrier relationship. His commitment to excellence has earned the firm honors for ethical business practices, rapid growth and outstanding customer service.
Goodwin’s leadership extends from mentoring and setting the bar for client value creation at ATC into the telecom industry. He was chosen among a select group of industry channel executives to serve on the inaugural PHONE+ (now Channel Partners) Advisory Board and was instrumental in a collaborative effort to formalize TCA’s Code of Ethics for agents in the telecom industry.
Leveraging his expertise and strong industry relationships, Goodwin drives client results with respect to the total cost of ownership (TCO) and return on investment (ROI) in four main areas: VoIP phone systems, voice and data networks, structured cabling, and cloud technology. His success supports the firm’s exceptionally high client retention rate.
Prior to co-founding ATC, Goodwin gained significant experience and established lasting relationships with service providers during his decade-long tenure at Cable & Wireless. Consistently finishing in the top three in annual new sales (among over 300 national reps), he maintained the largest customer revenue base in the general business division. He was distinguished by his ability to grow and service his book of business. Goodwin also guided a regional team of 12 representatives as a district sales manager.
Before joining Cable & Wireless, Goodwin was a pitcher in the Chicago Cubs organization. He holds a bachelor’s degree in business management from Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he earned various academic/athletic awards/scholarships and is an active alumnus.
On a local level, Goodwin is an involved member of the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber and its CEO Roundtable program. He is a frequent contributor in local newspapers/publications on a host of telecom-related topics. He also served a three-year term on the Heritage Club Board of Trustees and coached several years of select baseball in the Greater Cincinnati area.
