ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Florida (December 24, 2015) – Longwood-based A1 Assets Inc., the parent company of Refresh Telecom, announced the spinoff and headquarters relocation of its Federal Communications Commission-registered telephone company, Refresh Telecom, to Altamonte Springs, effective Jan. 1.
"As Refresh Telecom enters a successful profitability mode, it's time to make [it] a separate entity, allowing it to spread its wings," said A1 Assets founder David Leavitt.
Refresh Telecom provides fully managed cloud-based VoIP telephone and systems, as well as managed IT services, to small and medium-size businesses nationwide. The new offices initially will employ eight people, and Leavitt said he expects employment to grow to more than 40 employees by the end of 2016.
Jonathan Sullivan, a graduate of Crooms Academy of Information Technology in Sanford who also earned a master's degree in network communications management from Keller Graduate School of Management, was named CEO of Refresh Telecom.
The new headquarters will be located at 415 Montgomery Road, Suite 131, in Altamonte Springs.

We have been using Refresh Telecom for over 6 months now and I can honestly state there is simply no better Telecom solution available to small businesses. Support, customer service, and their services are literally unbeatable. We have saved quite literally thousands of man hours (equating to increased revenue/profit) by using Refresh Telecom and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
Not only is our new IP Phone System cost effective but it has more features than we will ever use. A similar analogue system was going to cost us several thousand dollars to upgrade not to mention the reoccurring cost for our phone lines. With this new system, we have unlimited lines and our monthly cost is more than 70% less than what we were paying previously. This system will pay for itself within a year of use.
We had been on a quest to find a reliable but still affordable telecommunications system solution. We have been through numerous phone services but none that where able to meet our taste. We where referred by a business partner who had nothing to say about Refresh Telecom except great things. We've been using Refresh Telecom for almost 7 months and have no intentions of making another switch. We have found our home.
