Management

Larry Scott, President

As founder of 911 ETC, Scott has over 40 years experience in various phases of the telecommunications industry. In the early 1990’s he recognized the glitch in the nation’s 911 system any time a multi-line telephone system (MLTS) was employed and determined to provide a solution to government, small businesses and the enterprise. His expertise and diligence in providing a fully managed and hosted E911 service for MLTS and VoIP with superior customer service has positioned the company as a respected leader in the industry today. In 2010 Scott was recognized by the 9IA, National E911 Institute and Congress for his positive impact upon the nation’s 911 system as a result of the solutions provided by 911 ETC. Scott remains involved with his church and community and serves in numerous volunteer leadership positions.
