Benjamin Piilani Chairman of the Executive Committee and Chief Executive Officer
Ben started his career in 1996 in the Telecom Arena with Voice over Internet technologies (VoIP), while it was still yet in its infancy as a technology, with Unlimited Telecom. Unlimited Telecom deployed the first commercially released, "Flat-Rate" telecom service in the United States market.
In 1998, Ben launched his first Internet based company "Internet Business Advertisement Directory" ("I.B.A.D."). IBAD was the original online geographic based search engine for advertising businesses before AOL, Yahoo, and Google.
In 2001 Ben formed I-Net Solutions, Inc. ("I-NET"), a hardware, software, and networking company that operated under the trade names of "Piilani Computers" and "INS Communications. I-NET catered to large commercial, health care, municipal, and educational projects for any IT related software, networking, ISP services, and equipment. I-NET's core product was the "Piilani Computer" line. Ben was able to establish many industry relationships that are still considered part of Unified Technologies Group's core background today.
In 2003, Ben formed Unified Technologies Group, Inc. Ben now currently resides as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Unified Technologies Group, Inc., which acquired I-Net Solutions, Inc. in 2003, and is classified as a "Diversified Conglomerate," with a vested interest in many areas of Communications and Technology from VoIP and IPTV to Broadband over Power Lines, Mobile Applications, and content creation and distribution.

He was also recently awarded the Congressional Medal of Distinction while attending the President's Dinner with George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney along with several members of Congress, including Congressman Tom Cole, John Boehner, and Senator Orrin Hatch.

According to Ben Piilani, Chief Executive Officer of UTGI, "We have been seeking an innovative and proven wholesale VoIP provider that will complete the final piece of our product concept. The synergy and strategic balance between VoX and UTGI is a natural fit. Our company is well established in developing and implementing new services and technologies. We were careful in our due diligence, testing and selection of wholesale VoIP providers, and it was apparent to me that VoX had the right technology and people to make this initiative a reality. The VoX technology is solid, the back office capabilities are exceptional, provisioning is automated and superior, and the VoX pricing model makes the margins attractive for us."
Piilani continued, "Our commitment to VoX is a fraction of the number of wholesale lines we expect to deliver.
